Nancy Crimi-Lamanna

  • Chief Creative Officer, FCB, Canada
  • Executive Jury

Named in 2018 by Adweek as one of Toronto’s Brand Stars that’s shaping the city into the creative hub it is today, Nancy has helped lead the creative resurgence of FCB - elevating its position to the most awarded agency at the One Show in 2020 and an Advertising Age 2019 A- List top ten agency. Her work has been presented to the UN twice and she also has the distinction of bringing home Canada’s first Integrated and Creative Data Cannes Lions. Since joining FCB Canada 5 years ago, the agency's creative work has been among the most celebrated and innovative in the industry, including its work for Bank of Montreal, BMW, Michelob Ultra and the Canadian Down syndrome society. It’s this forward-thinking that made FCB Canada the Media Innovation Agency of the year in 2019, Digital Agency of the Year, 4 years in a row and the most-awarded Canadian agency at the Clios and Cannes, 3 years in a row. Beyond creating iconic campaigns, Nancy is an industry thought leader: She's an inaugural member of the Times Up Advertising movement addressing gender inequality and has committed FCB Canada to #FreeTheWork, an effort to champion more female directors and diversity in the work. She serves on juries for both local and international shows, and industry and school advisory boards in Toronto.
