Creative First Means New Creative Leadership

Aug 6. 2018

Management reshuffle puts creativity first. Philip Linnemann to lead the way as new Executive Creative Director.


A new strategic initiative brings design and strategy even closer together in a creative first approach to everything we do. Philip Linnemann has been named new Executive Creative Director and will lead the new initiative.

Philip’s background as both a designer and strategist is an example of the next generation of creatives that Kontrapunkt wants to raise. The appointment is also part of an organisational reshuffle, which involves Co-founder and Executive Design Director Bo Linnemann stepping down from day-to-day management to focus his talents on special projects and in particular on Kontrapunkt’s ever-growing Japanese clients.

“I am extremely proud of the growth and development that we have achieved during the past few years. The fact that I can now relinquish the day-to-day responsibilities to an amazingly competent team is just a natural part of the evolution of Kontrapunkt”, says Bo Linnemann, Founder of Kontrapunkt.

Along with Philip's appointment, former Finance Director Flemming Mortensen has been promoted to Chief Operations Officer.

These new changes also mean that Rikke Nalepa Olesen steps down as CEO and leaves Kontrapunkt. Bo Linnemann adds, “We owe Rikke a massive thanks for her tremendous efforts. She is a great personality and leaves us in an exceptionally good shape. She is well-liked and respected for her craft and knowledge among colleagues as well as clients.”
