Leo Burnett Chicago appointed Nancy Hannon as executive vice president, executive creative director to manage the creative teams behind Kraft brands including Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Crystal Light and Breakstone’s as well as Kellogg’s Special K. Hannon will bring her expertise in retail marketing and marketing to moms and women to Leo Burnett’s clients.

“Nancy is known as a leader in portraying women in advertising with attitude, intelligence and depth. We welcome her contributions and leadership in this space,” said Leo Burnett USA Chief Creative Officer Susan Credle.

Hannon joins Leo Burnett in its Chicago headquarters from EnergyBBDO where she was EVP, executive creative director overseeing Quaker and vitamin brands like Flintstone’s, Citracal and One a Day. While keeping human-centric creativity and ideas at the core of her work, she continues to evolve her skills to create cross-platform and integrated campaigns.

“Leo Burnett is building tremendous momentum that is quite contagious.
