Joaquín Mollá, Chief Creative Officer and Founder, the community

Joaquín Mollá is the CCO and founder of the community, a global creative agency. Joaquín Mollá has over 30 years of experience in advertising. He started as a copywriter and became Executive Creative Director at Ratto/BBDO, before opening his own advertising agency: la comunidad (“the community” in the U.S.), together with his brother José Mollá. Today, the community has offices all around the world (Miami, Buenos Aires, San Francisco, New York, and Mexico City).

As an internationally awarded creative agency, the community has been named AdWeek’s 2023 Multicultural Agency of the Year, one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Agencies in Advertising (2022), one of Ad Age’s A-List honorees eight of the last 10 years, most recently in 2022. The community has also been named one of Ad Age’s “Best Places to Work,” one of the world’s “Fastest Growing Agencies” by Adweek, and one of the “Top 25 Agencies of the last 50 Years” by Campaign. Today, the community has offices all around the world (Miami, Buenos Aires, San Francisco, New York, etc.).
The community has also won some of the industry’s most prestigious awards, earning, among others, 11 Grand Prix. The agency has worked with some of the most iconic brands in the industry, including Verizon, Oreo, Corona, Apple, Volkswagen, Converse, City of Buenos Aires, BMW, Emirates, Sony, Coca-Cola, Google, Rolling Stone Magazine and more. Joaquín has also served as a jury member of some of the most important award shows, including Cannes, Clio, The One Show, D&AD and LIA. Outside of the agency world, Joaquín spent 10 years as a communication advisor to the City of Buenos Aires and the Office of the President of Argentina during the government of Mauricio Macri. Responsible for all communications throughout his entire presidency. It was the first time in the last 100 years that a “non peronista” President finished his whole term. Joaquín has two boys, and during his spare time he likes to think he is a good painter. He has been studying Buddhism philosophy over the last 20 years. He is also crazy about boating. So, it’s obvious he didn’t open the community in Miami by chance.
