Global Chief Creative Officer / Saatchi & Saatch Wellness

 

Kathy Delaney began her advertising career after completing her education at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She joined Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness, the leading marketing agency specializing in consumer wellness, as Global Chief Creative Officer in February of 2013. In this role, she is responsible for implementing a bold creative vision, overseeing the overall creative product and ensuring that the agency is a product-driven organization.

In June of 2011, Kathy founded KDCnyc, a consultancy that joined forces with Pure Growth Partners in naming, packaging and launching the health focused SK Energy Shots brand. The success of the brand launch culminated in nationwide distribution and more than two million meals fed to those in need through a giveback program with the World Food Programme.

Prior to that, in 2007, Kathy joined Nitro as Global Chief Creative Officer. During her time at Nitro, she helped build the business globally, culminating in its sale to global digital consultancy, Sapient, and successfully forming SapientNitro, a global digital and brand specialist network. ConAgra, Foot Locker, A&E, Unilever, Quiznos, Kraft, MARS (Dove and TWIX) and Victoria Secret's PINK were Kathy's collective clients spanning both Nitro and SapientNitro.

Previously, Kathy spent 12 years at Deutsch, where she helped it grow from a small boutique of $180 million into a $2.5 billion marketing communications company. Kathy's passion for creating and overseeing integrated campaigns that outperform business objectives has impacted clients such as IKEA, Snapple, Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Tommy Hilfiger, Johnson and Johnson's Tylenol, Revlon, Almay, Monster.com, MCI, Foot Locker, Tanqueray and Pfizer's Zoloft and Zyrtec.

Kathy joined Deutsch in 1993 as an Associate Creative Director, was promoted to Executive Creative Director and Partner of the New York office in 1997, Executive Creative Director Managing Partner in 2001, and Chief Creative Officer, President in 2004. Prior to Deutsch, she was Associate Creative Director, VP at Chiat Day, NY, working on Reebok.

Kathy has won numerous awards for her work, including the ADDYs, ANDYs, Effies, One Show Gold, Communication Arts, Art Directors Club, and her work is featured in the Museum of Modern Art's permanent advertising collection. She has also been honored with the American Advertising Federation Under 40 Hall of Achievement Award, and served as a judge at the 2010 Cannes Lion International Festival. In January of 2013, Business Insider named her as one of "The Most Creative Women in Advertising."
