He also advised brand teams on major strategic initiatives and creative development projects for clients like Jack Link’s Snacks, CITGO, Kellogg School of Management, Rubbermaid, Graco, and Calphalon. He began his career in account management at Campbell-Mithun in Minneapolis, and spent several years at Leo Burnett in Chicago.

“Andrew brings with him a wealth of strategic management experience and creative know-how across several key categories, not the least of which is automotive. He is also a veteran when it comes to building and leading large cross-functional agency teams. He is great asset for us and for Nissan. We are thrilled to have him,” said DeAnda.
