Senior Vice President
An experienced marketer with a proven history of collaborating with clients and creatives to deliver great work, build brands and drive business results.
Lindsey Clark brings over 15+ years of integrated marketing, business development and brand knowledge to the MediaLink Transformation team. Before joining MediaLink, Lindsey was a Managing Director at the advertising agency, mcgarrybowen, partnering with Gordon Bowen and the mcgarrybowen leadership to expand the network offering in six key markets. In 2009, Lindsey joined the Chicago office of mcgarrybowen and helped to build the office from 35 people to over 200. As a Managing Director working to oversee both the Olive Garden and the global Mondelez accounts she oversaw an integrated marketing team for Triscuit, Vea and Green & Blacks, belVita and the Barny accounts. And her work to pitch, onboard and lead the Olive Garden brand back to a leadership position required her to motivate and direct a cross-functional agency team of 30+, in a one-agency model that serviced the brand as AOR across digital, social, brand/mainline and Hipic efforts. Her deep experience working on complex projects and across blue-chip brands like Kraft, McDonald’s, Dunkin’ and Mondelez, has translated to strong business results for clients and award-winning work for the agencies.
Prior to working at mcgarrybowen, Lindsey spent 5 years at the DDB working in business development, and contributed to $300MM in incremental billings for their Chicago office during that time. Her new business wins included LensCrafters, Safeway, Kraft and bel Brands. She cut her teeth after graduating from the University of Minnesota in publishing, at Hearst’s King Features division in New York City.
