Menno Kluin, US Chief Creative Officer, dentsu Creative has a proven track record of creative success -- and hundreds of industry awards and accolades to show for it. Formerly the chief creative officer at 360i, Menno was elevated to chief creative officer of dentsu's US creative offering in 2021. In this newly created role, Menno leads the creative output for dentsu's creative agencies including 360i, dentsuMB, and Isobar.
As chief creative officer at 360i, Menno's creative leadership transformed perceptions around the type of work the agency produces, resulting in 360i's most-awarded creative output to date. Drawing on his background in design, Menno prioritized creative rooted in traditional design principles and craft, but produced with a digital mindset.

Since 2018, 360i has earned hundreds of accolades including a Cannes Grand Prix and recognition as One Show's Best of Digital Craft, making it one of the most-awarded agencies in the dentsu global network. And Menno's influence extends far beyond awards.
