CCO, Havas Worldwide, Switzerland

Folker was destined to be a copywriter – studied psychology, worked as a flight attendant, DJ, and journalist. Even worked the grill at a burger place for a while. He was lucky to pick Ogilvy Frankfurt as his first agency, and smart enough to stay for ten great years. Went on to Leo Burnett, Saatchi, Publicis, McCann. Moved to Switzerland, then to Istanbul, and back to Zurich. Happy to be CCO at Havas Switzerland. Member of the German ADC, judge at a one or the other festival, including Cannes Lions. Won plenty of awards, too. Alumnus of the Berlin School of Creative Leadership. Passionate speaker and lifelong learner. Still DJing, always writing, relentless optimist. Proud to be European.
