The One Club Adds Three Creative Leaders to its Board of Directors

By Kyle O'Brien 

The One Club for Creativity has added three top industry leaders to its board of directors.

Elected by a vote of The One Club membership to two-year terms are Katie Allen, vp, global brand creative, digital, Nike; PJ Pereira, co-founder, creative chairman, Pereira O’Dell, and CCO, Serviceplan Americas; and Jaime Robinson, co-founder, CCO, Joan Creative.


Board member responsibilities include providing guidance on the club’s many career development, education and diversity programs, connecting the club with advertising and design schools, and nominating top creatives to serve on juries for The One Show and ADC Annual Awards, both of which are currently open for entries.

“I hold an unwavering conviction that creativity is the driving force behind everything good in this world. The One Club not only embraces this shared belief, but also provides the foundation to confront the significant challenges our community encounters now and in the future,” said Allen in a statement.

Pereira said he wouldn’t take his appointment lightly.

“As a non-profit organization so historically committed to the future of our industry, no one is better equipped than The One Club to help us navigate the social, technological and business changes we have ahead,” added Pereira in a statement.

Robinson said she promised to do her best to continue in The One Club’s great traditions.

“From the moment I was a wee babe in advertising, I’ve felt the benefits of The One Club shining its light across the industry, working to make it better, more equitable, and of course, always more creative,” said Robinson.

Glenn Cole, co-founder and chairman of 72andSunny, and board chairman of The One Club for Creativity stated that the three were chosen for their creative integrity, which is a guiding value at The One Club.

“Our Board members are some of the top creative leaders in the world who take pride in driving progress and making things happen. Katie, PJ, and Jaime come from different backgrounds but they’re proven innovators and impact junkies. I can’t wait to see what we do together.”
