CEO, Regional Director McCann Worldgroup
"When I was tasked to restart one of the larger McCann offices I asked Lars Killi to join the team in order to rebuild the agency. In a short amount of time we grew the business and a strong creative reputation. It took 11 months before the trade press awarded us The Agency of The year!"
CEO of Dentsu Aegis Network Northern Europe.
"Lars is a two-in-one-concept! he is a business minded creative director with and understanding of the future and a deep knowledge of the past. I will strongly recommend him to any company or organisation in need of insight based and cutting edge communications."
Regional Account Director, McCann Worldgroup
"I worked with Lars in both Prague and Singapore during his - and my - time with McCann Worldgroup. We've created campaigns together for some of the agency's top clients - Coca-Cola, Nestle and J&J. Lars has always been a visionary creative director - clear in his objectives, inspiring to his colleagues, focused 110% on the product; the CREATIVE work. For the 3 and more years that we worked together he was one of the few who really got it."
Partner OTBT, Hong Kong
"In the decade I have known him, Lars Killi has become my boss, my mentor and my dear friend. He is a rare combination of true creativity and sharp business savvy that most of us can only aspire to. He tackles every problem from an unexpected angle, achieves success where opportunities are few and his ingenuity and passion drives those around him. His dynamic personality holds a room and his positive spirit is infectious - he is a great man and I'm glad I know him."

"As Chairman for the Golden Drum jury I nominated Lars Killi to take part, mainly due to his international experience and the fact that he previously won The Grand Prix in the same competition"
CEO, McCann Worldgroup
"If you've ever been fortunate enough to work with Lars then you'll have experienced something of a phenomenon in the Ad Industry. On the surface is a calm, good humoured and slightly eccentric character, wrapped in a Nordic shell. But beneath this deceptive exterior lurks a Creative Brain powered by Cold Fusion and singularly focussed on extracting the best creative solutions that both entertains and sells for his clients, elevates and reinforces the morale of the agency and time after time wins local, international and global awards."
Executive Creative Director, MullenLowe
" I then went to McCann Prague and worked with Lars Kili. I’m dropping these names here, plus Will Rust from Ogilvy Prague, just so I can thank them all – they have shaped my work and me as a creative director, and I owe them a world of thanks."
