As CCO for Edelman Canada, he led the agency to its first Cannes Lions’ wins and to be the first PR agency named a finalist for Agency of the Year (twice). In his current role as Global Creative Director on clients including Unilever, he has earned multiple international awards including a Gold Lion for Vaseline’s ‘See My Skin.’


Andrew is the Chair of the ADCC (Advertising & Design Club of Canada) and is the host of ‘In Conversation with…’, a monthly profile of industry creative leaders.
