The FCB network Cannes Lion wins span a variety of offices and clients around the globe. 

This year’s incredible success is an overwhelming testament to FCB Global CCO Susan Credle’s creative vision and mandate, which has been expertly infused into the global network’s trailblazing creative work. FCB Worldwide CEO Carter Murray’s dedication to building and maintaining its diverse talent pool has elevated FCB by fostering a uniquely inclusive environment where talent is valued above all else. 

FCB New York has so much to celebrate after a sensational week at the Festival, finishing strong with the Titanium on the final day for “Whopper Detour,” on behalf of Burger King.
