As a ‘creative’ guy, for years Brent hid the fact he had graduated from one of Canada’s most prestigious business schools. And that he used to be an account guy. And that he won numerous math competitions. Okay, maybe keep that last one on the down-low still. Today as Chief Creative Officer of J. Walter Thompson’s flagship New York office, Brent’s unique left brain/right brain approach has helped them transform creatively. In just his first 18 months, JWT’s work has been featured in publications such as New York Times, Mashable, CNN and even Sesame Street, along with a dozen Cannes Lions and Pencils.
Before arriving in NY, Brent helped two different agencies transform into Canada’s Agency of the Year, two others to runner-up AOY, and his clients being named Brand and twice the Marketer of the Year. In 2013, Brent was the #2 ranked Chief Creative Officer in the World for digital and is one of only 11 worldwide winners of the inaugural Fast Company Innovation by Design Award At home Brent transforms into a proud dad, insane NFL fan, and loving husband. His wife would add “In that order.”
