RICHMOND, USA // Danny Robinson is chief creative officer at The Martin Agency, named 2021 Adweek Agency of the Year and #8 on Ad Age’s 2021 A-List. As CCO, Danny is both the tone-setter for and champion of creativity. He has responsibility for the overall health and creative vibrancy of all the agency’s accounts.
A Hampton University graduate with an Atlanta University MBA, Danny uses his business acumen and creative savvy to spark success for Martin’s client roster of brands, including GEICO, UPS, CarMax, DoorDash, OREO, Donate Life America, and Old Navy.
Danny began his career at Martin in 2004 as a creative director and moved up the ranks before being promoted to the agency's first-ever chief client officer in 2018. Three years later, he ascended to his current role. Before Martin, he co-founded Vigilante, an ad agency focused on leveraging pop culture, where he was one of the architects behind the legendary Pontiac G6 giveaway on Oprah. In that time, Danny has scooped up plenty of awards: Cannes Lions, D&AD, One Show, Clio, and most recently, Campaign US 2021 Agency Head of the Year and Ad Age’s 2021 Chief Creative Officer of the Year.
An accomplished artist, pop culture aficionado (including being one of the biggest Prince fan on the planet), former DJ and standup comic, he was even once voted by the Stand Up NY Comedy Club as “one of the funniest men in advertising.”
