Jordan Doucette has been named Executive Vice President/Executive Creative Director at Leo Burnett Chicago, according to a press release issued today. She will oversee creative for the Kellogg account.

Adding a digital edge to the characters of the Kellogg brands — many of whom were created by Leo Burnett over the course of a 50-year relationship with the food company — will be among Doucette’s key responsibilities.

“The Kellogg Company is an iconic organization, and I see incredible opportunities to reinvigorate the love and magic of these brands,” she says. “Brands are adapting to today’s way of buying and eating food, and smart, thoughtful, strategy-driven creative has never been more important.”

Doucette was most recently Chief Creative Officer at TAXI Toronto, an agency she joined as a copywriter in 2005. Her marquee clients there included Pfizer, Mark’s, MINI Cooper, and Vancouver Aquarium.

She will report to Leo Burnett Chicago Chief Creative Officer Britt Nolan, who describes Doucette as “exactly the right leader to help us continue our evolution.”

“Jordan is a preeminent leader and her track record is second to none,” said Nolan. “She is a modern thinker, known for understanding clients’ business challenges and approaching them with creative solutions — not just ads.”

In addition to her exceptional agency experience, Doucette served as a juror at the 2017 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity and has held juror positions for The One Show, the Effie Awards, the Globe & Mail Young Lions, the Marketing Awards, ADCC and the One Show Young Ones.

On the flipside, she and her teams have been recognized by several award shows including Cannes, The One Show, and the CLIOs.

Doucette also serves on the board of the Advertising and Design Council of Canada and participates in programs like the Google WomenWill Program and the Cannes See It Be It Panel.
