Founder & CEO, Odysseus Arms
Namer of Mother in London, Libby Brockhoff was 27 when she co-founded Campaign’s “Agency of the Decade.” As one of the only female agency owners in the industry (women make up 3 percent of agency leadership), she’s crafted advertising strategies for Silicon Valley darlings like Facebook, Microsoft, HotelTonight, and YouTube. She directed the reframing of the transgender narrative as the creative visionary behind the launch of Caitlyn Jenner’s on-air image. She activated Amnesty International supporters to help Obama’s Arms Trade Treaty pass in the United Nations. She served as a Cannes panelist for the 2017 Festival of Creativity. And she leads a dangerous team of equally-passionate professionals in San Francisco, as CEO and founder of Ad Age’s 2014 “Small Agency of the Year” (and next “Agency of the Decade”), Odysseus Arms.
