Josh Leutz

Executive Creative Director / Writer

I am an Executive Creative Director at Carmichael Lynch in Minneapolis, where I lead a department
of 30-plus human beings – an eclectic mix of talented people adept at ideas of all shapes and sizes.

Previously, I was a VP / Creative Director at the Martin Agency, where I oversaw global work on the
Microsoft Cloud as well as iconic Mondelez brands, Chips Ahoy! and Ritz Crackers.

Before that, I was a Creative Director at Butler Shine Stern & Partners. During my four and a half
years in the Bay Area, I wrote a new global brand platform for BMW MINI, oversaw recruitment
efforts for Google, and sent the Priceline Negotiator to a fiery death (well, tried to anyway). 

And while at McKinney in Durham, NC, I helped create the Unstoppable Tour for EAS Sports Nutirition.

I've worked at other places too -- with lots of good people. I’ve won some shiny things. It’s been a
good ride.

A proud Northerner, a soccer player, an occasional trail runner, I live with Molly, Mae, Ruud, and
two small dogs. / 734 255 5260
