Executive Creative Director


Susan Golkin is an Executive Creative Director at BBDO New York, overseeing all creative for Campbell’s Soup, Dove Chocolate (Mars), American Family Insurance and Quaker Oats—some of America’s most beloved brands. She is responsible for the new Campbell’s soup “Real, Real Life” campaign, including the Star Wars, “Your Father” spot, which found itself on The Colbert Report, The Million Mom’s Boycott and People Magazines’ Sexiest Men Alive List. She has also collected a few industry awards along the away.

Coming to BBDO almost nine years ago, Golkin has worked on Hyatt Hotels, Visa and The Red Cross; she also oversaw Global Creative for P&G’s Venus Gillette.

As a native New Yorker, Golkin has found it impossible to leave the city and lives there today with her three-year-old son and 8,000,000 other people.
