Piper Hickman

Consultant, Freelance

As a creative leader, Piper brings enthusiasm, acumen and a linguistic world view to the work she does and the teams she inspires. Currently she is engaged as a consultant for both agencies and brands and is usually tapped to either breathe fresh air and perspectives into current work or to take the lead in creating a holistic brand campaign or new business pitch.

Previous to consulting, Piper was an EVP, Global Executive Creative Director at McCann running the Microsoft account. There she helped develop and nurture aware-winning work for Teams, Windows and other special Microsoft initiatives while co-leading a team of 40 creatives. Prior to McCann, Piper was an Executive Creative Director at 360.

Before these leadership roles, Piper spent her formative career years in NYC working both as a full-time creative and sometimes freelancer. She’s worked at several agencies you’ve probably heard of and many of which now have different names: Saatchi & Saatchi, Ogilvy, Grey, JWT, Havas, Y&R, TAXI, etc.

The best compliment she’s received from a colleague is when he dubbed her a Swiss Army Knife, adding “you can do anything!”
