Hylink Group has appointed Ryan Gerber as Creative Partner and Executive Creative Director for Hylink Group Americas, as announced today by Humphrey Ho, Managing Partner at Hylink Group Americas. This places Gerber at the helm of Americas for Hylink Creative, the Group’s arm responsible for storytelling at scale.

Gerber brings over two decades of industry experience to the agency. Working globally at places like Wieden + Kennedy, R/GA, 72andSunny, Beats by Dre, Farm League and TBWA/Media Arts Lab, for brands like Adobe, Converse, Nike, Levi’s, Jeep, Apple and Pepsi.

Ultimately, Ryan stands out in his ability to navigate cultures, going beyond traditional boundaries.”

“We’re currently in a dynamic phase of creation, and at Hylink, we’re well-placed to make the most of it as we move forward. Expect an exciting and fulfilling journey ahead, it will be fun!” said Gerber.
