Forsman & Bodenfors Welcome 2 New Group Creative Directors to New York Headquarters

By Erik Oster 

Forsman & Bodenfors welcomed creative duo Jordan Chouteau and Cerra Buckholz to its New York headquarters in group creative director roles.

Chouteau and Buckholtz join the agency’s creative leadership team and will lead work for clients including Diageo, Boar’s Head, Dean Foods, and World of Hyatt, while reporting directly to Forsman & Bodenforst president Mike Densmore, who joined the agency from BBH a little over a year ago.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Jordan and Cerra to our team during such an exciting, new chapter for us,” Densmore said in a statement. “Not only have they had tremendous success in creating award-winning and effective campaigns for some of the world’s most renowned brands, they also bring a great deal of energy, ambition, leadership and a competitive spirit anchored in never settling for anything less than great. Plus, they’re both awesome people and funny as hell.”


Chouteau (pictured, left) joins Forsman & Bodenfors following nearly six years as a freelance creative director/copywriter, working with clients including Google, Kraft, Adidas, Sony and Virgin Mobile. Prior to going freelance Choteau spent around four years as a copywriter with Mother, working with brand such as Sour Patch Kids, Burger King Virgin Mobile and K-Y. Before joining Mother she spent over two and a half years as a copywriter with 180LA.

Buckholz (pictured, right) previously spent around six years as a freelance creative director and art director, working with clients including Google, Facebook, Oreo, Xbox, Kraft and K-Y. Prior to going freelance she spent three years as a senior art director with CP+B, overseeing integrated broadcast and digital campaigns for brands such as Old Navy and VitaminWater. Prior to that she spent two years as a designer with the San Francisco office of AKQA.

The new arrivals follow MDC Partners retiring the Kirshenbaum Bond Senecal + Partners last month as a result of a merger with Forsman & Bodenfors.
