A propos

In the pivotal year of 2008, Zak embarked on a momentous stride, initiating a profound juncture in his professional journey as he unfurled his own agency. Over the span of seven years, this venture transformed into the vibrant nucleus of creativity known as Zulu Alpha Kilo, affectionately recognized as ZAK. With a workforce of 75 skilled individuals, this establishment stands as a testament to his entrepreneurial spirit. Tracing his roots back to a background as a copywriter, Zak's formative years found resonance at Chiat/Day and BBDO.

Zulu's inception marked a pivotal juncture, punctuated by Zak's tenure as a partner and Chief Creative Officer at Taxi. Under his strategic vision, the agency earned distinction on the prestigious Gunn Report, while his campaigns resonated on a global stage, ranking among the top five in various categories. Creativity Magazine bestowed him with the honor of being counted among the top Ten Creative Directors globally.

His role as both a wordsmith and a Creative Director materialized into a collection of accolades garnered from the most eminent stages across the world. His work, a symphony of creativity, has earned medals at esteemed events spanning the spectrum of creative excellence. Beyond crafting, Zak has extended his impact as a discerning juror, lending his expertise to adjudicating panels at renowned events including Cannes, D&AD, Clios, and now, for the third time, the One Show.

Remarkably, his trajectory from humble beginnings in the mailroom to his present-day stature serves as a testament to his unwavering pursuit of excellence.

Zak MrouehFounder & Chief Creative Officer
Prior to starting Zulu, Zak was CCO & partner at TAXI Canada, where he helped lead the agency to become one of the world’s most awarded shops in the Gunn Report. In 2007, at the height of the agency’s success, Zak quit, and founded his own shop.
Since then, he has been busy building Zulu Alpha Kilo into a globally awarded 130-person independent. In 2016, Zulu was named Ad Age’s Small Agency of the Year, the first time a non-U.S. agency had ever won overall top honours. Zulu repeated as Ad Age’s International Small Agency of the Year in 2017.
Philosophically, Zak firmly believes size and growth is immaterial to an agency’s success. The key to long-term creative and financial health, he says, is to stay true to your creative vision and values no matter how big or small your agency. Having a fearless mentality and being an industry agitator is what continues to drive Zak forward each and every day.
