After racking up more than a dozen national and global awards for cause marketing and driving social change through traditional, digital, social and mobile campaigns, Drew Train set up shop as Managing Partner of OBERLAND, a purpose driven branding agency founded with Bill Oberlander.
Before launching OBERLAND, Drew started the social good practice at J. Walter Thompson New York, called JWT Ethos. In that role, Drew worked with corporate, nonprofit and public sector brands who play a role in driving change on the big-picture issues society faces. By leading an integrated team, Drew leveraged the potential of CSR strategy, communication planning, branding and advertising to create positive, lasting change.
Prior to opening JWT Ethos and OBERLAND, Drew learned
his craft through extensive work on global, corporate brands like HSBC, Verizon, UPS, Puma, Lufthansa, and Tiffany & Co. in the US and Shanghai. Drew was instrumental in helping grow Services for the UnderServed into one of the most influential and impactful nonprofits in New York City. And, as National Campaign Co-Chair he molded the #IWillListen Campaign for National Alliance on Mental Illness in NYC (NAMI NYC) into a powerful call-to-action to eliminate the stigma against mental illness.
Drew serves on the Board of Directors for Summer Infant, Inc. (NASDAQ: SUMR), a global leader in premium infant and juvenile products, as well as on the Board of Directors for NAMI NYC, the Resource Development Committee for Services for the UnderServed, and the Planning Committee for the CEO Summit on Mental Health in the Workplace.
Drew is 35, and holds a B.A. in Economics from the University of Richmond. He resides in New York with his wife and 3 children.
