2 Minutes With … John Carstens, Chief Creative Officer of Team DDB

Muse by Clio sat down with Chief Creative Officer of Team DDB, John Carstens, where he discusses the 11-agency entity he helped build to serve the U.S. Army, his proudest achievements, where he finds daily inspiration, and how is he paying it forward with the next generation of creatives.

“It starts with the people who work for me, helping them map out their careers. It’s been gratifying to see some of these people go on to become CCOs and agency founders. With aspiring creatives, I try to be as generous with my time as possible without becoming a stranger to my family,” Carstens explains.
