“Everyday I jump out of bed thinking today is the day we’re going to make something special happen”

Says Andy

Andy McKeon

Global Customer Marketing Lead | Facebook & Instagram/Creative Shop

I’m a lucky guy.

I’ve worked for Steve Jobs at Apple, Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook, Dan Wieden at Wieden + Kennedy and Jeff and Rich at Goodby Silverstein & Partners.

It’s not by accident. I love to be in the middle of the action. Learning. Contributing. Creating. Pushing the future.

People claim to be citizens of the world – I think it’s fair that I can add my name to that list. I’ve lived and worked in the U.S.A., Europe, Asia and Australia.

I started off in the ‘traditional’ advertising/marketing world and have grown and embraced technology. Right now I have a senior role at Facebook looking after some of the world’s biggest and most influential brands; Walmart, Amazon, Nike, Visa, Starbucks, Levi’s, Samsung, Microsoft, T-Mobile, Intel etc.

Prior to Facebook I was a Director at Apple in the Marketing Communications Group involved with launching some of the most influential products of all-time – the iPhone, iPad, iMac, iOS and OS software.

Advertising wise I’ve produced multi-media work for some of biggest brands; Apple, NIKE, Target, Microsoft, HP, Virgin, Kellogg’s, Pacific Bell, Budweiser, Olympus, Polaroid, Nestle, Coca-Cola, Ubisoft, Mitsubishi, ESPN, MySpace, Unilever, Kraft, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson.

On this crazy fun journey I’ve won creative and effectiveness awards and judged award shows. Won big global pitches, lost pitches. Launched products that people have slept in the rain for three nights to buy. Hired people and sadly fired people. Worked with some of the biggest directors and actors and some of the rawest. At fierce independent agencies and big global holding companies.

I know what it’s like to work all night and all weekend. To present to a bunch of Spanish-only speakers, to come up with ideas that work in 42 countries in 13 languages. To start my own agency. To fly first-class, present to CEOs yet also, empty the bins and restock the printer.

Everyday I jump out of bed thinking today is the day we’re going to make something special happen.
