Jim Elliott joined Y&R, NY as Chief Creative Officer in June of 2011 after having served as Group Creative Director at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners SF, where he spent five years working on key clients including Häagen-Dazs, Comcast, Denny's, HP, Netflix, Yahoo! and Sonic Drive-In. Along the way, he earned the distinction as one of the agency's most awarded creatives. His work for Hyundai helped turn the struggling car manufacturer into one of the most successful car companies in America during one of the worst economic downturns on record.

Big Idea Chair. His work for both Nike and Häagen-Dazs are on permanent display at the MoMA. His integrated "Help the Honey Bees" campaign for Häagen-Dazs helped earn the brand the first-ever Green Pencil awarded by The One Club.

Jim came to advertising by way of the Portfolio Center in Atlanta after earning a BA from the University of Pennsylvania. He cut his writer's teeth at Mullen Advertising in Wenham, Massachusetts, followed by a position at Cole & Weber United in Seattle that evolved into a creative director/partner position, before settling in at Goodby in 2006.

Jim currently resides in Manhattan with his wife Sharlyn, their Labrador Retriever "Teej", and their 2 year old son, Kayden James.
