VICKERS & BENSON

O’Malley is the former creative director and partner in Toronto-based Vickers and Benson Advertising (now Arnold Worldwide Canada).

Terry O’Malley, a St. Catharines native, has held an enormously successful career in advertising. After graduating from Harvard University, Terry joined MacLaren Advertising, one of Canada’s largest advertising agencies. Starting as a junior writer for the General Motors account, Terry excelled within the industry through hard work, dedication, creativity, and a passion for advertising.

During his more than 30 years at V&B (now Arnold Worldwide Canada), O’Malley helped build the agency into one of the leading brands in the Canadian advertising industry. O’Malley’s creative contributions spanned a wide spectrum of businesses and public service categories, from fast-foods (McDonald’s Restaurants) to breweries (Carling Red Cap Ale) to a role as key strategist on the federal Liberal Party’s Red Leaf Communications team that helped win electoral victories for former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.

As former president and creative director of Vickers & Benson Ltd, Terry has won numerous accreditations and awards such as the Marketing, the Cannes Festival and the Fritz Speiss Award. A 30-second commercial showing a hand sticking a lit cigarette into a globe of the planet Earth won O’Malley the distinction of entry into the Hall of Fame of the prestigious New York-based international advertising awards show, The CLIOs. His work has become a popular standard in the advertising industry both nationally and internationally.

Terry O’Malley has donated all his papers and work – a complete archive of his career, to Brock University.
