Drew McLellan

Drew McLellan gets branding and marketing and he desperately 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. McLellan 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, McLellan created McLellan Marketing Group in 1995. Considered a national branding expert, McLellan 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 tenth grade class. Over the years, McLellan 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 & branding at work and on his blog Drew’s Marketing Minute, McLellan spends time with his family and pondering why the Dodgers can’t seem to get back to the World Series.  McLellan has a Master’s Degree from the University of Minnesota but alas, he cannot remember their fight song. In fact, he credits his real branding education to the fact that he's been to Walt Disney World at least once a year since it opened in 1971. Drew firmly believes there is no better branding model than Disney.
