Jordan Doucette, President & Chief Creative Officer, Dentsu Canada said: “It’s an exciting time to be at Dentsu Creative. The agency is laser focused on how we work, moving away from the traditional silos of capabilities within creative agencies, and bringing the process together to create ideas and deliver creative excellence. I joined Dentsu Creative because it was important for me to join a modern creative agency with the ability to deliver ideas that are big enough to live anywhere, bold enough to chart new executional territory and rich enough to connect personally with millions. What we’ve accomplished in the past year is a testament to the committed teams at dentsu, and our trusted clients and partners. I’m grateful for the opportunities that Stephen and the Executive team have entrusted with me, and so excited for what the future holds.”

Stephen Kiely, CEO Dentsu Canada said: “Almost two years ago now, after an infamous lunch at an obscure Italian restaurant with an order of branzino; before the first course arrived, Jordan’s spark was undeniable, and she described her tenured career and her extensive North American experience at big and small agencies - a perfect fit for the direction in which we were heading. Dentsu Canada’s mission was (and is) to deliver innovative creativity that strides boldly into the arena where ideas can move economies and humankind for both good as well as commercial success. Inflation Cookbook, JEMS presents Fu*cking Old and the business changing creative being done with Subway are just a few of Jordan’s most recent successes. I’m confident that Denstu Creative will continue to produce award winning best in class creative for our clients under her leadership.”

Lisa Mazurkewich, Head of Marketing, Subway said: “I met Jordan and knew instantly that she was a true partner. Jordan has a unique ability to look beyond old ways of working and bring modern creativity to solve business challenges. She has helped us reconnect with Canadians and transformed Subway with optimism and energy. Jordan has not only inspired her Dentsu Creative team but also helped Team Subway and our agency partners see what's possible. We are grateful to have her on this journey with us and could not be happier about this well-deserved promotion”
