Talent Champion Spotlight
Chief Marketing Officer
Omnicom Collective/Zimmerman Advertising
Cliff Courtney’s career has taken him from New York to Los Angeles, to Austin, Texas, and now to South Florida where he is currently the Chief Marketing Officer for the Omnicom Collective/Zimmerman Advertising. Along the way, he has held positions in creative, strategy, and marketing, and ultimately weaved those skills together to drive hundreds of millions in new business. His awards range from Effies to EMAs, yet his pursuit has always been focused on the results of the work, not the work itself.
However, Cliff’s greatest accomplishments have been as a mentor and professor, from his position as the Co-Chair of the strategic planning program at the Miami Ad School, to lecturing at the Universities of Florida, Texas, Miami and more. He is also a visiting professor at the University of South Florida. Finally, he continues to lead Omnicom’s elite Infusion Intern program at Zimmerman Advertising, focused on inclusion, mentoring, and preparing students to succeed from day one in the world of advertising and marketing.
