Jonathan Cude

Chief Creative Officer at McKinney
United States


Jonathan joined McKinney in 2003 as group creative director, coming from Wieden+Kennedy, where he wrote for Nike and Diet Coke. At Wieden, he demonstrated a broad creative range, from the humor of Nike "Streaker," Creativity's runner-up for ad of the year, to the inspiring drama of the Cannes Gold Lion winner, Nike "Before." As GCD, Jonathan's teams won virtually every major award from Cannes Lions and One Show Pencils to IAB MIXX Awards (including the inaugural best of show) and three Effies for campaigns including the Audi A3 Art of the Heist and the Sony Bravia The World's First Television for Men and Women. Jonathan was named chief creative officer in 2008. He is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin.


Chief Creative Officer

Durham, United States

McKinney is an independent, fully integrated agency with 200 employees headquartered in Durham, North Carolina. Effie Worldwide recently named McKinney “the most effective independent agency in the world.” The agency, founded in 1969, has enjoyed a long growth trajectory. Over the past three years, McKinney revenues are up 59%, with the addition of new agency-of-record assignments from Nationwide Insurance, Sherwin-Williams, GNC, Mizuno, Ruby Tuesday and Meijer Superstores. After parting ways in 2010, we came back together with Travelocity in August of 2012. We are an idea-focused agency with very deep digital expertise and a hard-earned reputation for leadership in communications integration. Unlike many agencies, we never set up a separate digital division or P&L; instead, we integrated our digital activities into our existing disciplines. We do not believe any client should have to choose between insightful strategy and brilliant execution—both create economic value.
