Michael McGuire

Director of Strategic Development at Elevate Studios

Chicago, United States


Charged with cultivating strategic insight and helping build client relationships, Michael brings more than ten years of industry experience to the Elevate family.

After attending the University of Northern Iowa, Michael started his career at True North Communications (the former holding company of FCB, which was taken over by Interpublic in 2001).

He joined the business development team at Element 79 Partners in late 2001 and helped increase billings at the agency by 20 percent over a two-year period. These wins included clients such as Alberto Culver, Sara Lee, Supercuts, and Lowe?s Home Improvement.

Most recently, Michael headed up the business development department at JWT Chicago where he won the Macy?s Department Store account, as well as HSBC and Kimberly-Clark.

Michael pairs new business expertise with strategic thinking to lead all planning efforts at Elevate Studios.
