Board of directors
Andrew is Partner & North America CEO of The&Partnership, established in 2013 as one of the largest and most successful digital and CRM agencies in North America. He built the company on the belief that the separation of creative, digital, and media into siloed agencies wasn’t well serving clients. The idea of brilliant creative tied to integrated media and strategy attracted marketers such as The Wall Street Journal, Toyota, Direct Energy, Canada Post, and TELUS. The business grew 45% last year, a time when most agencies were declining, merging or shuttering entirely. Andrew has created an agency that can fuse data, media and creativity seamlessly. The result is better, more effective work, conceived and executed more efficiently.
