Ted Royer

Ted is the Chief Creative Officer at Droga5, a global advertising agency based in New York. Since it was founded in 2006, Droga5 has been named Agency of the Year three times and was the only agency named one of Fast Company’s 50 Most Innovative Companies in 2013.
Originally from Philadelphia, Ted graduated from the Atlanta Portfolio Center in 1995. From there his advertising career took him to Singapore, Argentina and Australia working on accounts like ESPN and Heineken—it was as fun as it sounds. After a trip around the world, his feet finally started to hurt, and he landed back in the US, where he helped start Droga5 in 2006. For all the travels and hard work, he's won a bunch of Lions, Pencils and other awards people forget about days later.
As a Droga5 veteran, he has worked on almost every account from the agency’s inception – from PUMA to Kraft to Coke Zero – and looks forward to the many more to come. He lives with his fiancé and baby boy, Maximus, in Brooklyn.
