Todd Brandes

As Managing Director of DK, Todd's mission is to redefine what an Agency can be, and has done so by helping to turn DK from a Motion Graphics firm into a full service hybrid Agency in the span of 2 1/2 years. Todd wears multiple hats at DK but focuses on brand and business strategy for DK's clients. On key jobs, he also serves as Executive Producer. Todd’s industry background is expansive. Prior to joining DK, Todd served a long tenure with DDB: overseeing the international business for both McDonald’s and Anheuser-Busch. In between Agency work he's also done two tours on the client side, one with California Pizza Kitchen and most recently as Head of Global Advertising & Content for Motorola. Todd lives in Chicago, in a shoe, and has 18 children, all with variations on the name Todd, for his convenience. [+]
