DDB North America Justin Thomas-Copeland: “The Change Agent”

DDB North America CEO Justin Thomas-Copeland recently featured on the Fearless Creative Leadership podcast.

As host Charles Day describes him, Justin is a dynamic, charismatic leader with a long history of building successful businesses and creating change.

The episode covers a wide range of topics from the industry’s efforts tackling systemic racism, to Justin’s strategy of no duplicates and how it’s driving better diversity across offices in North America.

“I don’t think you spark change by trying to be the most popular person. You spark change by being genuine and having the right intent. If you’ve got the right intent, even if your decisions are wrong, people will trust you, because they know that you’re coming from the right place,” he says.
