In 2014, Andrew has been promoted President and CEO of Publicis Worldwide’s newly created North America region. Andrew is also the CEO of Publicis New York and is responsible for agency management of client services, strategic planning, operations and new business.
In 1999, Andrew joined Publicis Worldwide’s Toronto office with a mandate to reshape and reinvigorate a floundering operation. Andrew oversaw and fueled ten consecutive years of growth. Rising to President and CEO, Andrew took an agency struggling to attract top talent and business to one of Canada’s most respected agencies, entrusted with a client roster featuring iconic brands such as Rogers, WestJet, Purolator, Labatt and Chrysler. Under his leadership, Andrew instilled an entrepreneurial culture that made Publicis Canada the best place to work in the entire Publicis Worldwide network, as evidenced by the internal global satisfaction survey.
Andrew has an innate passion for this industry. He is deeply involved with the Institute of Communications Agencies as the Chairman of the Board and chairs the association’s largest annual event, the FFWD Advertising and Marketing Week.
