Matt Eastwood, global CCO of McCann Health. described Reid as “a creative superstor,” adding, “He believes that nothing is more personal than your health, and strives to create work that starts real, meaningful conversations that help motivate an audience to take action, enable healthier outcomes, and live healthier lives, which perfectly aligns with our mission at McCann Health.”
Reid, who early in his career worked as a VP-associate creative director at McCann in San Francisco, said, “I cut my advertising teeth at McCann, so it’s a bit of a homecoming. It’s been inspiring to watch the agency change and evolve over the years, especially in healthcare. Both Marcia and Matt are all about work that really matters, and pushing boundaries to create campaigns, tools and programs that reinvent the doctor–patient conversations. The work they are creating ultimately leads to healthier outcomes and people living better lives. I’m really excited to be a part of all of that.”
