Hello

We’re on a mission to work with the world’s most innovative marketers.

The biggest threat to business isn’t rejection: it’s indifference.

At least half the stuff we’ve worked on with them is not traditional advertising.”— JetBlue Client

Everyone in the agency is equally adept at talking about all disciplines.” — JetBlue Client

They really have
everything — creative
and analytics… — Zappos.com Client

We are a global creative boutique.

With many long arms, each able to deliver a powerful blow, several hearts that beat in unison and one sharp mind that shares a bold vision, MullenLowe is really unlike any other agency out there. We started with the merger of two kindred spirit agencies. We had complementary capabilities but more importantly we had long histories of being very entrepreneurial organizations. We were scrappy to the core and the result was one global creative boutique that shared the same vision. To work with the world’s most innovative marketers.

MullenLowe U.S.’s culture is entirely about limitless possibilities and a relentless belief in a future that is bigger than the past. It’s how we started our company. It’s how we built it.

Clients

We’re fortunate to work with a number of courageous, thought-leader brands. These are clients who make us better and push us farther, who are eager to take risks, who want to do things that have never been done before.

  • JOE GRIMALDI Chairman Emeritus I love this agency that I have been part of for over three decades, ever since we were only a dozen people. Before I became Chairman, I was CEO, President, COO and Director of Client Services. I started my ad career in NY after brief stints as a professional musician, a custom-design motorcycle builder and a construction worker. It has been my great fortune and privilege to help build this company and the underlying culture that makes its success sustainable. I believe in embracing change and taking risks, hiring people immensely more talented than myself, giving them room for their passions to soar, harnessing their collective force with a meaningful shared purpose, and doing all of this in an egalitarian, managed-chaos environment that fosters collisions of diverse thought and skills for inspired innovation and creativity on our clients’ behalf. My greatest contribution is installing our current leadership team. They instinctively possess the MullenLowe U.S. DNA, and they have the vision, talent, desire, determination and camaraderie to take our agency – and, just as importantly, our clients – to places that will greatly exceed expectations.
