Dean Delaney

Regional Director Sub-Saharan Africa, Dentsu Brand Agencies

In my current role as Regional Director of Dentsu Create, I lead our Creative line of business across Sub-saharan Africa working closely with business leaders from the various SSA markets. Ultimately ensuring that our Creative Agencies across the region are best positioned to deliver success and are aligned around our regional objective which is to deliver a single, powerful and consolidated creative solution - Moving People, Moving Business.

I have been fortunate enough to have gained extensive experience across the SSA region with 4 years spent working in Dar es Salaam as Managing Director of Dentsu Aegis Network Tanzania. As MD, I was responsible for all aspects of the business which included Dentsu Aegis Network brands, Carat, Vizeum and Isobar.

Prior to Tanzania I worked at Isobar in Cape Town as Client Director on one of our largest accounts which included a repositioning campaign for a global beer brand across 5 African markets.

Over the 10+ years experience in the advertising, digital and media communications industry I have worked with some of the largest brands globally across beverage, financial services, motor and telecommunications industries.

A proud husband and father, I am passionate and optimistic about Africa and grateful for the opportunity to experience our diverse and vibrant continent.
