Pedr Howard

  • Senior vice president, Creative Excellence & Brand, Ipsos U.S.

Pedr* Howard leads Strategy and Creative Development for Ipsos in the U.S., working on matching the Ipsos offer and narrative for achieving Creative Excellence to the needs of clients. He is passionate about advertising, creativity, and bringing consumer research and data into the communication development process.

Pedr has been with Ipsos since 2006, first with Ipsos Mori in the U.K. where he managed brand and communication research projects for local and international brands. In 2010 he transferred to Ipsos in Norwalk, Conn., to continue in his client advisory role during their merger and relocation. Soon after, he moved into leading the company’s early-stage creative development research practice. He has been in his current role since 2017.

*Typically goes by Ped, because nobody can pronounce Pedr – which is Peddar and is the old-Welsh for Peter. But he’s actually English, not Welsh, just has some ancestry on his father’s side.
