Prior to joining dentsu, for 10+ years, Jeremy served as Global Chief Marketing and Communications Officer McCann Worldgroup. He was responsible for reputation management for the legacy agency brand McCann and also for McCann Worldgroup, a multi-disciplinary organization that spans over 100 countries and is comprised of high-profile global marketing services companies that includes, besides McCann, MRM, Momentum, McCann Health, and Craft. As CMO, his responsibilities included the development of comprehensive integrated marketing plans to increase awareness of McCann Worldgroup, accelerate growth across all agencies, evangelize the strength of our global service offerings in support of client business, and lead the development of new brand assets and content to help the agency story achieve greater impact.
Under Jeremy’s tenure, McCann Worldgroup’s creative reputation was catapulted into the elite ranks of advertising agency creativity. The network was recognized by Adweek as the 2019 Global Agency of the Year, named Network of the Year by Campaign Magazine U.S & Europe and was named to Fast Company’s prestigious list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2020. Advertising Age’s “A-List” has recognized McCann Worldgroup for the 5th consecutive year.

His work managing the communications conversation about McCann Worldgroup’s creative work helped the network’s work become celebrated in the culture at large, most notably the “Fearless Girl,” created for State Street Global Advisors. This icon of female empowerment has grown into a global tourist attraction, permanently installed in front of The New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street. Additionally, his support of the work for the student-led gun-control organization “March For Our Lives,” and the “Changing The Game” campaign for Microsoft Xbox to make its products more accessible to the disabled, have both been celebrated in popular culture and among groups working to advance social causes.
