Selling something different: “Not going extinct”

We couldn’t be more proud of the Brandcenter alums who have pivoted from the advertising industry to take on important causes in an effort to make the world a better place. 

 

Casey Rand (CW '06) recently left her role as Executive Creative Director at Droga5 to tackle climate change as the first ever Chief Creative Officer at Potential Energy. Formed as a coalition of some of the best firms and talent in the creative industry, Potential Energy is developing and spreading new narratives towards climate change

 

Jason De Turris (ST '02) left his role as Chief Strategy Officer at Phenomenon Los Angeles to take on food waste as Global VP of Brand Marketing at Apeel Sciences -  a new technology to keep produce fresher longer and combat food waste, founded with a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

 

Thank you for your work creatively solving the world’s biggest problems.
