J. Walter Thompson New York is the headquarters of J. Walter Thompson Worldwide. In 2016, The Cannes Lions Global Creativity Report ranked us #5 Cyber agency in the world and #6 agency overall in NYC.

We are a culturally-connected agency and we believe that the advertising industry has a big role to play in building culture.

We are proud to service some of the world’s most iconic global and local brands like Energizer, Johnson & Johnson, Kimberly-Clark, Wild Turkey, Nestlé, Puma, T. Rowe Price and Schick, among others.

We have an open culture, where people are listened to, encouraged to share their ideas and enabled to succeed. We’ve made a commitment to go beyond the traditional thinking about diversity categories and build a team that truly represents the communities we live in.
