    Dan Lucey

    Chief Creative Officer

    Dan joined Havas New York as the CCO in December 2020. He was previously the Executive Creative Director and equity partner at JOAN, where he managed the creative output for Georgia Pacific, Virgin Hotels, General Mills’ Fiber One, Facebook, Walmart, Graduate Hotels, SafeAuto, Hive, Burst and Potential Energy. Dan believes that the most dangerous thing a brand can do is be boring. Boring gets ignored, boring gets skipped, boring wastes media dollars. The best work connects with an audience in a meaningful way, playing off a cultural truth or tension. The best work reaches an audience through earned media, not just paid. He formed this point of view from over 20 years of experience at some of the world’s most prestigious agencies. His work has earned multiple gold awards at Cannes, The One Show, D&AD, The ANDY’s, Clios, Art Directors Club, and the Effies. He is also proud that his most recent campaign for General MIlls recorded the greatest turnaround in the brand’s history. His recent efforts lead JOAN to a 2020 Small Agency of the Year accolade from AdAge, thanks to the agency’s “head turning creative.” He was recently included in Business Insider’s Most Creative People in Advertising Right Now, AdAge’s 40 under 40, and ADWEEK’s Creative 100. His Tide To Go Super Bowl commercial has been named one of the 10 best, on multiple polls. Before JOAN, Dan joined BBDO New York, and teamed up with Chris Beresford-Hill, as an Executive Creative Director, leading a group that managed all Foot Locker brands, Guinness, Bud Light and, helping the flagship office earn multiple AdAge A-List and Creativity A-List appearances, year after year. Prior to BBDO, Dan lead the Comcast and Google accounts at Goodby Silverstein & Partners. Before that he was at Saatchi & Saatchi New York, where he created some of the agency’s most high-profile, award winning work, for Tide (Talking Stain), Crest (You Can Say Anything With a Smile), and Fruit by the Foot (Replacements). Dan started his career at Mad Dogs & Englishmen, in NY. When he is not working, he can be found at home spending time with his wife and two children.
