Jackie Cooper: Edelman Global Chair, Creative Strategy
Jackie brings more than 30 years of experience in strategic brand marketing. In 1987 she co-founded JCPR, the eponymous award winning consumer PR agency in London running campaigns including the final Concorde flight, O2, Allied Domecq, Mary Kate & Ashley and Wembley Stadium. Acquired by Edelman in 2004, she then served as creative director and vice chair of London, leading campaigns such as Dove Campaign for Real Beauty and Every Child has a Right to Play for Unilever, as well as Wonderbra and Halo 3 launch for Xbox.
In 2011 Jackie was appointed global vice chair of brand properties, working at the intersection of brand, content and partnerships, establishing global entertainment affiliations for clients internationally and delivering brand counsel for clients including Diageo, Starbucks and Xbox. She has worked extensively with UHNW clients particularly from the worlds of sport and entertainment.
Currently Global Chair, Creative Strategy, Jackie sits on the Edelman executive board, overseeing the firm’s creative offering across the network, raising creative capability and ensuring clients benefit from powerful ideas that deliver memorable campaigns.
Jackie acts as a board advisor for Jamie Oliver Holdings and Wings of Hope, an education charity in India and Africa, as well as proving counsel for a variety of entertainment projects and people. She is based in London and is married with two daughters who educate her daily.
“Jackie Cooper is one of the most sought after agents in the world. Yet the chances are you will not have heard of her. She is the Polaris of self-promotion that does not do self-promotion; someone who wants to make the story, not be it. Difference drives Cooper. She says that she feels like an entrepreneur and the key to entrepreneurship is...The ability to make something out of a difference,” says The Branded Gentry: How a new era of entrepreneurs make their names
