Own It

Hosted ByChristy Hiler

We’re buying out of the ad industry boys’ club. Hosted by Cornett owner Christy Hiler, Own It lifts up the stories of women and nonbinary ad agency owners: their challenges, their successes, and their goals for the industry. We’re aiming to start a movement—because you don’t have the power until you own it.

How Elena Robinson of Putney, Owns It

Share the goodness!

On this week’s episode of OWN IT, we’re talking to Elena Robinson of Putney. I’ve been so excited to talk to and learn from Elena since she announced Putney at Ad Age’s Small Agency Conference last year. She’s been at it for a little over a year now, so this is going to be an informative episode. 

Elena has been at most of the big agencies in Chicago … Leo Burnett, BBDO and more. But now she’s turned her focus toward ownership. She plays guitar, was a theatre major in college, and worked in television production with the Oprah Winfrey Show … I can’t wait to dig in. 

Thanks for listening to this episode of OWN IT with Elena Robinson of Putney. You can find links to her LinkedIn profile and the agency website in our show notes at untilyouownit.com.
