Kristen Cavallo, President
As President of Mullen Lowe Boston, Kristen leads an agency built to work with ambitious thought-leader brands. Recently named a Woman to Watch by Advertising Age, Kristen is a brand planner by background and a two-time winner of the Jay Chiat Award, the industry’s highest honor for strategic excellence, for her work on Volkswagen and Coca-Cola. She has also led strategic brand planning for Acura, American Greetings, Saab, adidas, Charles Schwab, Kohler and Miller Brewing. In a world of increased competition, Kristen believes the biggest threat to business today isn’t rejection, but indifference. For a challenger to win, they must have the ambition to steer conversation toward their brand and in their favor. When she’s not working, you’ll probably find Kristen traveling with her two children. In addition to her professional and family responsibilities, she gives her time generously to an orphanage in the developing country of Rwanda, traveling there to support children who are in residence.
