Drew McLellan

Drew McLellan gets marketing and he wants you to get it too.

So he tells stories, asks questions, and milks sacred cows. All to help clients discover their brand so they can create authentic love affairs with their customers.

Drew has not only survived 20 years in the advertising and marketing arena, he’s thrived in it. After working for several other agencies, including Young and Rubicam’s CMF&Z, Drew created McLellan Marketing Group in 1995.

Considered a national marketing, branding and social media expert, Drew is a highly sought after speaker and has given about a zillion presentations at national conferences, key note addresses, training for his peers in the profession, college students and even his daughter’s high school class.

Drew’s book, 99.3 Random Acts of Marketing has received high praise and helped launch his weekly column for Iowa’s business journal.

Over the years, Drew has lent his expertise to clients like Nabisco, IAMS pet foods, Kraft Foods, Meredith Publishing, John Deere, Iowa Health System, Make-A-Wish, University of Central Florida, Skidoo and a wide array of others.

When he’s not out preaching the good word of marketing and branding at work and on his blog www.DrewsMarketingMinute.com, Drew spends time with his family and pondering why the Dodgers can’t seem to get back to the World Series.

Drew has a Master’s Degree from the University of Minnesota but alas, he cannot remember their fight song.

He also serves on the national Boards of Directors for:

  • Variety the Children’s Charity, United States

  • Smart Brief on Social Media Advisory Board

And Iowa based boards:
