“A creative rock that seamlessly comforts the client and invites new business”. “A leader by nature whose high standards are ever present, refreshing and inspiring. “A rarity- a calm and encouraging presence” and “a big- picture strategist by nature”. Hutson has been called all these things by the people who have worked with him. As a creative leader, Hutson has built a reputation for bringing a collaborative spirit, true integration and out-of-the box thinking everywhere he’s worked.
Part Buddha and part prize-fighter (as one co-worker referred to him), Hutson hails from Cleveland, Ohio. The city of bad weather, bad jokes and until recently, really bad sports teams. As such, a thick skin is simply part of his DNA. So, advertising just seemed like a natural career path
Hutson started his career at JWT working on all the brands he grew up eating and learning from some of the best people in the business. He has since taken what he’s learned and guided teams, groups, agencies and clients to think smarter, be braver and push beyond their comfort zones.
Hutson’s work has been featured in Adweek, Communication Arts, The Drum and the FWA. It also started a nationwide debate that included Whoopi Goldberg on “The View”, Bill O’Reilly on Fox News, Forbes, The Huffington Post and Bloomberg Businessweek.
