George Tannenbaum

ECD, Copy Chief, Ogilvy

George has spent well-over half his life in the advertising business yet he still manages to be a nice guy. He re-joined Ogilvy nearly four years ago to work on his dream account: IBM. George also worked at Ogilvy on IBM from 1999-2004. Before Ogilvy, George worked for five years as executive creative director at R/GA—running the Ameriprise business, R/GA’s first traditional-advertising account.

George has won major awards for both creativity and effectiveness in four media channels: traditional, direct, interactive and experiential. He lives in Manhattan with his wife, Laura, and the world’s cutest golden retriever. He has two grown kids who have flown the coop.
