The pair will oversee various agency accounts and will play key roles on Heineken USA's Dos Equis brand, the international Kraft account as well as new business.
Kleman comes from TBWA\Chiat\Day in New York where he was an Associate Creative Director for the past two years. He was recently part of the major award-winning Snickers Halloween print campaign and the re-launch of the ABSOLUT Vodka brand campaign. Previously he was a Creative Partner at TBWA\Singapore for six years where he helped the agency win Agency of the Year two years running. In 2005, Kleman was named the Most Awarded Person in Asia by Campaign Brief Asia Magazine.
Levine comes to Euro RSCG from Publicis, where, as Senior Vice President and Creative Director, he launched Vault energy drink, and developed campaigns for the Manhattan Short Film Festival and Amstel Light. He launched his career at D'Arcy Masius Benton & Bowles as an art director and copywriter.
The pair have each accumulated a superb reputation and an enviable list of awards over the last ten years, including D&AD Pencils, Gold Cannes Lions, Gold One Show Pencils, Best of Shows and Clios.
“Not ready to leave New York just yet, I can’t wait to create some highly talked about work at the flagship Euro RSCG office here in the States,” said Kleman. “I’m thrilled at being giving this mandate and opportunity to work with the agency that won Global Agency of the Year by Advertising Age and Advertising Network of the Year by Campaign in 2006.”
"I have admired the work of Euro RSCG for some time now, both in the States and abroad," added Levine. "As a fan of the 'Most Interesting Man' campaign myself, I am especially looking forward to taking the Dos Equis creative to the next level."
