Mr. Sawyer, 47, had been with Wieden & Kennedy in Portland working on the Nike account and helped found the agency's Amsterdam office in 1992, serving as its managing partner. Mr. Sawyer's creative partner in the Lowe San Francisco office, Creative Director Vince Engle, has joined Leagas Delaney's San Francisco shop.
