2017 One Show Social Jury

Brent Choi


J. Walter Thompson

New York & Canada

As a ‘creative’ guy, for years Brent hid the fact he had graduated from one of Canada’s most prestigious business schools. And that he used to be an account guy. And that he won numerous high school math competitions. Okay, maybe keep that last one on the down-low still.

Today, as Chief Creative Officer of J. Walter Thompson New York & Canada, Brent has helped lead the network’s head office to its best year in Cannes since 1971 and climb to the #5 ranked Cannes Cyber Agency of the Year. His unconventional path has been a cornerstone to helping him transform the New York office but also two different agencies into Canada’s Agency of the Year and two others to runner-up. He’s won big at every major show, had the honour of judging Cannes, Clios and now One Show, and in 2013, Brent was the #2 ranked Chief Creative Officer in the World for Digital. He’s also one of only 11 worldwide winners of the inaugural Fast Company Innovation by Design Award.

At home Brent transforms back into a proud father, insane NFL fan, and loving husband. His wife would add, “In that order”.
