Zurich, 13 February 2013 – Serviceplan Suisse has kicked off the new year by adding five well- known creatives to its team under Christian Baertschi and Sacha Moser, which is now 27-strong. Customers served include blue-chip brands such as Hasbro, Stöckli Outdoor Sports, UBS and the latest new account, BMW Switzerland.
The new recruits: Within the space of 14 years Ticino-born Viviana Chiosi advanced from a position as a graphic design assistant to the renowned Art Director at the Publicis advertising agency. During this time she amassed invaluable experience on major accounts and won many creative accolades, including an Epica Gold Award for Emmentaler Switzerland. She has also acquired a reputation as a charismatic artist.
Senior Copywriter Jan Krohn also worked alongside Viviana Chiosi at Publicis in Creative Director Sacha Moser's team for many years. Their outstanding portfolio included campaigns for Maggi, Charles Vögele, Frisco / Findus and Orange, each of which was rated among the top two "Campaigns of the Year”. Jan Krohn was lured by the best-selling author Martin Suter from the literature scene into the advertising world and has since worked for various agencies and customers on outstanding campaigns.
It could be said that creative Christian Sommer is almost celebrating a return because he has a previous stint as AD at the parent agency in Munich under his belt. Whilst there and during his time as AD and CD at other companies he claimed over 100 national and international accolades in all the major creative competitions including several Cannes Lions Awards. Since 2009 he has been a member of the British Art Director und Designer Club D&AD and he is sure to play a key role in making Serviceplan Suisse one of the country's leading creative agencies.
Copywriter Ulrike Schumann has mainly been active outside advertising in recent years: she has worked for the broadcaster VIVA, written for her own and Germany's largest fashion blog Lesmads.de, opened a successful boutique with a web shop in Zurich and worked for the online store of the PKZ Group (her most recent position). Today Ulrike Schumann is once again designing and copywriting for the Serviceplan Group, having previously worked for the company in Hamburg and Munich, following stints at the Jung von Matt, Heimat, DDB and McCann Erickson agencies after completing her studies in business communication management in Berlin.
Andrea Zanzerl, who mainly worked creatively for Bernina and Charles Vögele at Red Lion and Publicis, is the new junior AD at Serviceplan Suisse.
