ADC announces Phil Meunier as new Board President

Sid Lee co-founder to assume duties October 7

ADC is soon to have a new big boss of the board. We’ve just announced the appointment of Philippe Meunier, Creative Chief and Co-Founder of Sid Lee, as President of the ADC Board of Directors.

“ADC is extremely proud to welcome Philippe as our Board President,” said ADC Executive Director Ignacio Oreamuno. “Sid Lee is an exemplary model of the agency of the future that ADC is fighting for; an agency that doesn’t differentiate between design, experiential or traditional. Sid Lee has been integral to the transformation at ADC, as we continue to work hard to build the new Club. Expect a lot more to come from their participation,” Oreamuno continued.

Meunier and Sid Lee have already worked alongside ADC on a number of initiatives, including ADC’s new branding, announced earlier this year. Sid Lee also designed the innovative new ADC Awards Traveling Exhibition, a globe-spanning showcase that features the very best winning work from the ADC Annual Awards, ADC Young Guns and the Tomorrow Awards.

Co-founder of Sid Lee, Meunier is responsible for all of the agency’s creative output. Because of his multidisciplinary approach and the creative team he oversees, Sid Lee has received numerous prestigious awards and accolades. Sid Lee’s global offices in Montreal, Toronto, New York, Paris and Amsterdam provide Meunier with strong ties to the creative communities not only in North America, but across Europe as well.

Meunier’s overarching goal as ADC President is to continue the efforts of outgoing ADC President Benjamin Palmer to make the organization even more multidisciplinary.

“I am a firm believer that the industry neither can nor should be broken into separate disciplines,” Meunier said. “ADC is an institution that does not only help to enable creative careers, it also connects them to their surrounding environments. To do so, it is essential that we embrace creativity in all its forms and remain open to all creative disciplines.”
