Lobatón said he’s been a fan of Lawall’s for a decade.
“Her work is smart, funny, strategic and always with an extra layer of insightfulness, which is what makes her such a fantastic creative and leader,” he said. “We’re both aligned on the amazing opportunity that’s building Rethink in New York.”
Lawall, meanwhile, called Lobatón a rare style of CCO, with a “strong vision” who “knows how to make things happen.”
