Dany Minaker

Dany Minaker is the LATAM Chief Creative Officer and the Global Executive Creative Director of Wunderman Thompson, also leading the creative teams for The Coca-Cola Company on behalf of Wunderman Thompson globally. In 2021, Dany and his creative partner Patán led the team responsible for creating the campaign for the world’s first inclusive deodorant for Unilever, ‘Degree Inclusive’. It received over three billion media impressions and won the Innovation Grand Prix at Cannes Lions, which was the first of its kind to be won in Argentina’s history. But most importantly, the campaign inspired conversations across the industry to make more personal care products accessible and inclusive. Dany and Patán also received the 2023 Innovation Grand Prix at Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity alongside MIT Media Lab spinoff, Augmental, for their ground-breaking MouthPad^. The revolutionary product was created by Augmental and allows people to control devices purely through the movement of their tongue.  Over the last few years, Dany has created local, regional, and global work for some of the world’s largest brands including Microsoft, United Airlines, Telefonica, Coca-Cola, GSK, Unilever, Disney, Nestlé, and Mercado Libre.

They won a total of 22 Grands Prix in 2021 and 2022 alone. Dany has gone on to win even more prestigious awards and mentions like being named one of the ‘Top 30 best creative CCOs’ by The Drum. He has also judged at many festivals including Cannes Lions, London International Awards, Adweek’s Project Isaac Awards, Lisbon Festival, IAB, ECHO Awards, Creatives Argentines Circle and was the Digital and Mobile Jury President at El Ojo de Iberoamérica too.  In addition, he is a sought-out speaker in the LATAM market where, most recently, he has spoken at IAB, MMA, Lebook, Cannes, and El Ojo de Iberoamérica.
