Tom Mayer is originally from Detroit. As a Senior Copywriter and Creative Director on New Business at TBWA\Paris, he was instrumental in winning both the Dom Perignon and Christian Dior businesses while there. He then decided a move back to the USA was in order to be closer to family and friends. His ongoing education in Digital, Automotive, Fashion, Pharma and Traditional advertising has allowed him to work with people all over the world and on every level as a creative. Tom has expertise in working on some of the biggest brands in the world in branding, launching new products, and completely renovating social media. And, he enjoys it.
When Tom is not working, he's drumming, golfing or cooking for his parents at home in the same house he grew up in. After decades of script writing and spending time in recording studios, he's also a Voice Over Artist and SAG-AFTRA member. One thing's for sure: Tom is a lucky man and he'll be the first one to tell you.
Armed only with his Macbook Pro and an amazing library of music, Tom loves getting a great brief on his next project so he can get down to business. He also uses that as an excuse to not answer his phone or check his email. However, he will answer when you call. Seriously now.
