Résumé

After 25 years in advertising, Lynn can genuinely say she is just as passionate about the business today as the day she started. As President, J. Walter Thompson New York, Lynn partners with Brent Choi, Chief Creative Officer of J. Walter Thompson New York and Canada, to lead the agency’s flagship New York office. Together they are responsible for driving industry-leading creative work, and the overall strategic direction and growth of J. Walter Thompson New York.
Lynn has been building brands and leveraging creativity as a business tool for clients for years, working with some of the world's most iconic brands including American Express, Clinique, Hershey's, Gillette and L'Oréal. Prior to joining JWT, Lynn served as President and Managing Partner of Arnold New York. In her five years at the helm, she helped grow Arnold NYC into a thriving mid-size agency, leading many new business wins including 23andMe, Alberto Culver, Del Monte, Kohler and Sanofi. Lynn also helped drive Arnold's momentum to be named Comeback Agency of the Year by Ad Age in 2010, as well as to Ad Age's A-List in 2011. Previously, she held roles at BBDO, Grey New York and Ogilvy & Mather. At the heart of agency success, Lynn believes in building a talent-centric culture that respects and nurtures ideas as well as the people who create them.

Lynn’s two children, Billy and Katie, remind her daily that learning, curiosity and fun are not to be taken for granted.
She is originally from Chicago and moved to New York City thinking it was just a short-term stop. That was 15 years ago. Now Lynn lives in Manhattan with her husband Bill (yes, he is also in the business) and her crazy kids. Life is good."
