About Us

J. Walter ThompsonNew York

J. Walter Thompson New York is the headquarters of J. Walter Thompson. We are a culturally-connected agency and we believe that the advertising industry has a big role to play in building culture.

In 2017, The Cannes Lions Global Creativity Report ranked us #8 agency overall in NYC. And #3 for Product Design, #5 for PR, and #8 for Cyber in the US.

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