Virtual Circus Forum – Cashmere Agency

Ryan Ford – CCO at Cashmere Agency

As the Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Ryan Ford oversees all creative and communication strategies. Ryan builds out many of Cashmere’s most successful programs and campaigns, including Airbnb, Overstock.com, adidas Originals, Hot Pockets, PepsiCo and much more. Constantly working to identify and integrate the changing dynamics between brands and multicultural millennial consumers, Ryan is a driving force behind the agency’s success.

Ryan holds a BA in Journalism from University of Iowa and a MA in African-American Studies from University of California, Los Angeles. Prior to Cashmere Agency, Ryan served as Executive Editor at The Source, often dubbed “hip-hop’s bible.” For eight years, Ryan played a pivotal role in the construction and content of every issue and interviewed hundreds of revered musicians, executives, celebrities and politicians, including Jay Z, Kanye West, Jamie Foxx, Queen Latifah, Puff Daddy, Russell Simmons, Al Sharpton, Shaquille O’Neal, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, 50 Cent, Nas and OutKast to name a few. His tenure at The Source led him to several on-camera contributions for E! Network’s, True Hollywood Story: Snoop Dogg and VH1’s Behind The Music.

Guests, to RSVP, please email Hannah Heller (hannah.heller@creativecircus.edu) by Friday morning. Students – no need to RSVP.
