Leo Burnett Chicago has named Jordan Doucette chief creative officer. Doucette was most recently executive vice-president/executive creative director at the agency. She is the creative lead on the Kellogg Company and Miller-Coors.

Doucette starts in her new role immediately and will report jointly to Emma Montgomery, president and chief strategy officer, Leo Burnett Chicago, and Liz Taylor, chief creative officer, Leo Burnett Worldwide.

"In naming a new CCO, our priority was to make sure we are igniting the creative culture that is alive and well at Leo Burnett. No one is better positioned for this than Jordan," Montgomery said. "Jordan's open approach to creativity helps deliver great work from big, integrated teams and brands. She is a true partner and is the evolution of what a creative leader needs to be in today's environment."

In her new role, Doucette will continue leading the creative for her marquee clients, as well as oversee the Leo Burnett Chicago creative and production departments. She will also work in close partnership with Taylor.

"What attracted me to Leo Burnett is that it's a creative solutions company that is continually transforming how we work to bring the best, most effective ideas to the table," said Doucette. "I'm most excited that this role will help me get closer to our clients and our teams to help shape not only the work, but how we work."

Doucette joined the agency in January 2018 and has been at the helm of Kraft Now Pay Later, All Together Cereal and Kraft Salad Frosting. Previously, she was chief creative officer of Taxi in Toronto leading award-winning work for blue-chip clients including Pfizer, Canadian Tire, Mark's, Fido Telecommunications, Mini Cooper, Vancouver Aquarium and BC Hydro.
