After leading creative departments at a number of large agencies, Tod Seisser felt there was something missing: Doing the actual work—at his own agency. So he formed Grok with partners Julie Bauer and Steve Landsberg.
Tod has created award-winning work for many of the world's most iconic brands. Prior to forming Grok, as Chief Creative Officer of Saatchi & Saatchi / New York, he raised the standard of that agency's creative product on such clients as Johnson & Johnson, General Mills, Beck's Beer, Kodak, UBS and Procter & Gamble. In fact, Tod was instrumental in laying the foundation for P&G's creative awakening, fueling a process that led them to be named Advertiser of the Year at Cannes.
Tod Seisser has also held positions of creative leadership at J. Walter Thompson, Ammirati & Puris and Levine Huntley Schmidt & Beaver, where at age 27, he rose to become the agency's youngest Creative Director. His wide-ranging experience at those agencies included UPS, Citizen Watches, Seagram's, Ruffino Wines, Maidenform, Rolling Rock Beer, Nikon, RCA and Phillip's Milk of Magnesia.
Tod currently serves on the Creative Review Board of the Partnership for a Drug-Free America. He has taught at the School of Visual Arts, lectured at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles and is a past Vice President of One Club for Art and Copy.
