Stephanie truly personifies our values and I feel lucky to have her steering the ship and leading our creative team and agency to even greater heights.”
Berman joined McCann Health New York in 2018 as Executive Creative Director. For two decades she has focused exclusively on health and wellness, including CV/Met, infectious disease, mental health, oncology, and rare diseases, with clients ranging from major pharmaceutical organizations to startups bringing their first product to market. Prior to McCann Health New York, Berman was a partner and Chief Creative Officer at The Bloc, where she built and inspired a multi-functional team to deliver work consistently recognized as industry-leading, and served as Creative Council Chair for The Bloc Partners global network. Berman strongly believes in the power of mentorship and prioritizes mentoring up-and-coming creative industry talent.
