Todd hails from the often-frozen but always-contemporary city of Minneapolis. While at the University of Minnesota, he studied both aerospace engineering and acting and decided that advertising was the perfect blend of rocket science and Broadway.He joined GSP in 1996 and has overseen a wide range of accounts, including Yahoo!, Adobe, Lipton Iced Tea, Quaker Oats (for whom he launched the “Go Humans Go” campaign) and HP (for whom he led the global “Invent” campaign for their brand and enterprise business).Todd has also led more than his fair share of automotive accounts, including Isuzu, Saturn, Hyundai (including the award-winning “Think about it” campaign) and the global Chevrolet business. In fact, when GSP landed the Chevy business in 2010—the largest account in the agency’s history—GSP handed the reins to Todd. That meant, among other things, staffing a new team of more than 250 people.Todd relocated to Michigan in November 2011 to become the managing director of GSP Detroit. The opportunity to help Chevrolet develop into a global brand and to open and build the agency’s Detroit outpost into a full-service office was too much to pass up.Now back in San Francisco, Todd leads GSP’s new business efforts and our work with Adobe and Google. The Bay Area is also a hot spot for one of his other passions—amateur sports car racing. He’s excited to revive his hobby now that he’s back.
