About Chris Olsen, US President, Rapport
Chris began his media career at Deutsch NY, the fall of 2001, within the strategic planning team working on Snapple, Monster.com, Starwood Hotels and DirecTV.
Chris joined MEC in 2006 where he handled Cadbury and Campbell’s. Due to the breadth of these accounts, Chris managed over 20 product variants while leading several successful, award-winning, launches within the portfolio. Within his 20 years in the media planning business, Chris has serviced a wide range of large clients from packaged goods, e-commerce and entertainment brands, handling all media disciplines.
Chris moved over to GroupM’s non-traditional/OOH media specialty division, Kinetic Worldwide in 2011 overseeing several agencies (MediaCom, Neo@Ogilvy) including over 60 high profile brands like Audi, VW, Shell, Revlon, Whole Foods, Bayer and Allergan. Within his 7+ years on the accounts, Chris and his team successfully helped the brands stay competitive, ahead of the curve in the non-traditional space and drove consistent revenue growth within the network.
As of most recent, Chris has managed the East Coast Rapport offices (120+ clients) with an eye towards transparency, collaboration with key partners, as well as internal team and revenue growth. With the expansion of his role to President, Rapport US, he will oversee the 5 US-based offices and together with Rapport’s Global President & CEO, Mike Cooper, continue to position Rapport as an industry leader.
