Leader/Growth Partnerships

Brian Heffernan never met a challenge he didn’t like. An NCAA Division 1 wrestler in college, today he tackles clients’ business problems with that same tenacity as Resource/Ammirati’s Leader/Growth Partnerships.

In addition to leading the agency’s business development efforts, he works with both new and existing clients to support key initiatives and provide strategic counsel on a range of branding and organizational issues that affect business growth. He has more than 30 years of industry experience across a variety of categories, including CPG, retail, health and wellness, business-to-business and financial services, previously serving as Executive Vice President at inVentiv Health. He was also Chief Marketing Officer for GSW Worldwide and President of the Chicago office of J. Walter Thompson. During his 17 years at JWT, Brian worked with a diverse group of marketers, including Nestlé, Kraft, Miller, Unilever and many more.

Brian holds a BA in Journalism and Communications from Marquette University.
