He previously worked at Proximity Germany as Managing Creative Director, leading a digital agency of 130+ people from over 30 countries. He worked in the U.S. for over 10 years and also ran the LEXUS car account in North America as Executive Creative Director at TEAM ONE.
With a wealth of international experience including stints in London, Amsterdam and Stockholm, Wettstein brings additional creative expertise and global cultural perspective to any shop. Among his past affiliations are 72andSunny, Crispin Porter Bogusky, J. Walter Thompson, and BBDO New York.
Wettstein is known for his first-to-market executions including a breakthrough broadcast TV spot in stereoscopic 3D and the first interactive “Eye Contact Installation” for the Ad Council/Autism Speaks from BBDO NY that was honored in the Next Experiential category of the AICP Next Awards and is now part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His passion for finding creative solutions that use technology in innovative ways brought to life Bullseye’s Playground for Target, an immersive, in-store gaming experience allowing the player to physically walk throughout a game and interact with characters within a store environment using Google’s Tango 3D mapping technology.
Wettstein has also led campaigns for Google, Gillette, Best Buy and Call of Duty and is recognized by LIA, Cannes, Webby Awards, CLIO Awards, D&AD, One Show and the Effie Awards. He’s also a member and juror of the Art Directors Club Germany.
A pilot in his spare time and self-declared “engine enthusiast,” Wettstein has an adoration for cars, motorcycles, and planes.
