May 19, 2014
The One Club, the world's foremost non-profit organization recognizing creative excellence in advertising, design, interactive and branded entertainment, today announced its new Chairman of the Board, José Mollá, Co-Founder and Executive Creative Director of La Comunidad, part of SapientNitro. José replaces Kevin Roddy, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of Riney San Francisco, who served as Chairman of The One Club Board of Directors since 2009.
"The One Club is an incredible organization that has done so much for me and my career that I am glad I had the opportunity to give back. It has been an honor and a pleasure,” said Roddy. “The One Club couldn't be in better hands than with José. His passion and energy for creativity in our business makes him the perfect person to help lead the organization into broader areas of influence."
Mollá founded Miami-based La Comunidad in 2000 with his brother Joaquín and they have since expanded to Buenos Aires. Earlier this year, La Comunidad joined SapientNitro, further expanding the agency’s unique blend of brand, digital, commerce and technology capabilities and providing José and his team unparalleled access to emerging technologies and opportunities to create innovative experiences for their clients. Before opening La Comunidad, Mollá was Creative Director at Wieden+Kennedy in Portland, Oregon for five years. He also served as Creative Director of Ratto/BBDO, an Argentinean agency that won the 1996 “Agency of the Year” by Circulo de Creativos. Throughout his career, Mollá has earned various awards, judged at major industry shows and served as a member of The One Club Board of Directors for the past 10 years.
“It is an honor to lead and continue serving the mission of The One Club in this new role,” said Mollá. “As the premiere industry association for recognizing professional and student excellence, I look forward to inspiring our members in creative innovation and expanding the organization’s global footprint.”
“José is a brilliant creative who brings international experience and an intimate knowledge of The One Club’s philosophy,” said Mary Warlick, CEO of The One Club. “He is committed to raising awareness for our many education and diversity initiatives, and he will be instrumental in expanding our presence around the world.”
