Andrew Dimitriou

Andrew is responsible for managing VMLY&R across EMEA. He also serves as the Global Client Leader WPP Sanofi.

Prior to his current role, he led  Y&R EMEA for three years — which included being awarded Regional Cannes Creative Network of the Year (2017), Effectiveness Network of the year (2016). 

Before leading Y&R Andrew led WPP’s Red Fuse unit across Europe. Before leading Red Fuse, Andrew was the global managing director on the Hill’s Pet Nutrition account, which was handled by VML in Kansas City, Y&R Prague and Y&R Tokyo.

Andrew is a true globalist and a thoughtful integrated marketer, no doubt because he is a creative and entrepreneurial thinker. He has shown his passion and commitment – for the business, for our clients and the agency – since his early days in new business.

He has worked at Y&R and WPP for 20 years on four continents, cutting his teeth in New Business Development at Y&R New York, then shifting to account management on clients like Xerox and Merck. He also served as Client Services Director in Latin America, where he worked on a broad range of categories. He speaks English, Greek and Spanish and is working on his French every day.

Andrew's native Australia may be evident in his every spoken word, but he is a true globalist. He is based in Paris, with his wife Jennifer and their twins, Zoe and Christian.
