Press Kit for Ryan Kutscher
Ryan Kutscher is the Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Circus Maximus, an award winning agency that on average helps their partners grow more than 300% per year.
Ryan grew up in New Jersey with few plans for how he would spend his adulthood. He went to college for business, but dropped to work for the hottest agency at the time, Crispin, Porter + Bogusky. While he was at Crispin, Porter + Bogusky, he was named twice on Creativity World’s Most Awarded Creative Directors for his work on campaigns for Burger King, Volkswagen, Alliance for Climate Protection, and several others.
Using his experience from Crispin, Porter + Bogusky, he took on a new challenge as the Creative Officer at J. Walter Thompson’s (JWT) New York office. There, Ryan received critical acclaim for his work on Band-Aid, Macy’s, Smirnoff and Kraft. His ‘Magic Vision App’ campaign for Band-Aid won the Gold Lion at Cannes.
Ryan is a three-time Grand Prix winner at the Cannes Advertising Festival—for Method, Volkswagen, and Burger King. He also masterminded the Burger King “Whopper Freakout” campaign, which was praised by the Wall Street Journal for raising the company’s stock price and also won the Grand Effie.
Now, Ryan spends the majority of his time and energy as the Founder and Chief Creative Officer at Circus Maximus.
Circus Maximus focuses on high interest brands in under appreciated categories like Health Tech, Personal Care, B2B, and Mission Driven Food & Bev. Circus Maximus’s numbers speak volumes about Ryan’s success. Ryan and his team are considerably responsible for helping Roman (getroman.com) scale their company valuation from 0 to 6.8 Billion. Yes, that’s Billion with a B.
The team at Circus Maximus was responsible for the brand narrative, content, and specific aspects of Roman’s marketing strategy during their exponential growth. To this day, Circus Maximus continues to work with Roman as an equity partner.
Circus Maximus has also helped scale the following:
– King C. Gillette (0 to 100 Million Dollar Valuation)
– Rappore (0 to 25 Million Dollar Valuation)
– Justworks (40 Million to 183 Million Dollar Valuation)
Circus Maximus now has five offices across three continents.
Ryan’s colleagues describe him as a rebel who gets things done and loves a great challenge. He enjoys sharing his knowledge with others in a tactical way by including examples from his experiences with scaling brands.
