2017 One Show Branded Entertainment Jury

Kerry Keenan


Half Irish

New York

In late 2015 Keenan left her role as CCO of Deutsch New York to return to the company she co-founded, Half Irish, and her passion for developing original and branded entertainment.

Over the course of her 20 plus years in advertising, Kerry has been named a Business Insider “Most Creative Woman in Advertising” for four consecutive years, an Ad Age Woman to Watch, has been cited by Fast Company as the real world 'Peggy Olsen’, and is proud to have helped change the ratio of every major international award show.

From developing an animated series for MTV, to winning the first media lion awarded at Cannes, to launching the Entertainment division of Y&R, to co-founding her own small business, Kerry’s career has taken many interesting turns, not the least of which is being mom to Frances, Lucy, and Marty the Sato dog.
