Bruno Bertelli began his career as a copywriter in New York after attending the School of Visual Arts. He then moved to JWT Italy in 1998 where he remained until 2010 in the role of creative director on high profile international accounts and Executive Creative Director of the Rome office. Then in 2011, he joined Publicis Italy as Executive Creative Director with Cristiana Boccassini. In November 2014 Publicis WW appointed him CEO of Publicis Italy.
