ARTHUR FLEISCHMANN

2016 INDUCTEE

Arthur has come a long way from the streets of Queens, NY where he was born. Arthur started his career in sales at Xerox after earning a degree in Economics and English Literature at Brandeis University in Boston. But after losing a photocopier out the back of a moving station wagon on the way to a client, Arthur decided it was time for a change. Arthur attended Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University and entered the world of brand management at Kraft/General Foods in New York.

In moving to Canada, Arthur made the switch to advertising and never looked back. After stints at Bates Canada and Ammirati & Puris where he left as President in 2001, Arthur and his partners opened john st.  His goal was to create a “creative collaborative” without the silos, bureaucracy or territorialism he’d seen in his previous lives. 

In the past 15 years, john st. has been named Marketing Magazine Agency of the Year, Strategy Magazine Agency of the Year Bronze and Gold and Digital Agency of the Year Silver and Gold – and has won numerous creative accolades in international and domestic advertising award shows.  

Arthur is a passionate advocate for people living with autism and serves as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors for Specialisterne Special People’s Foundation a not-for-profit that enables those with ASD to find meaningful, professional careers.  His best-selling book, Carly’s Voice, about his gifted daughter has been translated into seven languages.
