Sr. VP, Group Business Director, DDB Chicago
Brian Hurley has spent two decades in the advertising business, helping create and grow some of the best-known brands in American business. Kellogg’s, Nike, “got milk?,” Safeway, Apple, and Genentech have all at some point benefited from Brian’s involvement. He has worked for big agencies and small; he built his own independent agency in San Francisco and has run departments and international training programs for large agency networks.
He currently works for DDB Chicago but lives in San Francisco and Napa (no, he has no immediate plans for making wine – he’s busy enough tending 25 acres of old-growth forest on Mt. Veeder).
