I am sure many people don’t know Chuck is from Minnesota, is a U of M grad, comes to homecoming every year, has a house here, family here. One of the most prestigious agencies in the world is run by a Minnesotan. He moved to Miami in like 1981 after a very successful career here as a copywriter. By the 1990s Crispin was exploding.
Chuck joined the Crispin Agency in 1988 as creative director and partner, after a long career as an award-winning freelance copywriter. The agency was renamed Crispin & Porter, and within three years, it doubled in size and was named one of the top 15 creative shops in the country. Under his leadership, CP+B has become one of the most awarded agencies in the world and was honored as Agency of the Decade by Advertising Age. Chuck has been a judge or jury chairman at the Clios, the Andy Awards, the D&AD Awards in London, and Cannes, among others. He has served as Chairman of the 4A’s and co-chairman of Advertising Week in New York, North America’s preeminent communications industry event. He’s an advisor to the Future of Advertising Project at Wharton as well as co-founder of the Boulder Digital Works Institute at the University of Colorado. Along with Martha Stewart and Michael Dell, he was named one of Inc. Magazine’s “Entrepreneurs We Love”, and this year he will be inducted into the Advertising Hall of Fame.
