Nancy Crimi-Lamanna

Chief Creative Officer

FBC Toronto

TORONTO, CANADA // Nancy accidentally became one of Canada’s first interns when she offered her copywriting services free of charge over 20 years ago.

Eventually she went on to become a salaried employee and an awarded creative working at agencies ranging from small independents to large multi-nationals. While there, she led many of Canada’s largest brands and created some of Canada’s most recognized campaigns. Her work has been awarded nationally and globally at virtually every show including the Cannes Lions, London International Awards, CLIO’s, Effies and was recently ranked among the top 15 writers in Canada.

Nancy also has the distinction of bringing home Canada’s first Integrated Lion for her Ministry of Health Social Smoking campaign.

Occasionally, Nancy still works for free judging both local and international shows, being on the advisory board for the Toronto chapter of the Miami Ad school, contributing articles to local trade publications and looking for the next generation of interns as a Chief Creative Officer with her partner Jeff Hilts at FCB Toronto.
