CEO, North Strategic, MSL Canada and Notch Video


As CEO, every day is different for Jess Savage. It's been like that since 2012 when she joined North in its infancy. Today, the roster of amazing clients across North, MSL, Notch and the Publicis Groupe network, an always-on pipeline of new business, and an outstanding team of talented, ambitious professionals keeps things fresh and fun.

Jess is a strategic communicator specializing in thought leadership for C-suite executives of some of North America’s leading brands. Never one to shy away from a challenge, she moves between her teams, multiple projects and big brands, guiding clients through good times and crises across the Canadian earned media and influencer landscape. As an agency-led expert across multiple media channels and platforms for more than two decades, Jess has had the good fortune to build thoughtful, creative campaigns and brand moments within the technology, real estate, retail, CPG, finance and travel industries.

Internally and interagency, Jess is a builder of culture-first environments. As CEO of three brands with unique but complimentary offerings, she has helped develop and expand a supportive network of peers who are driven by shared values, including a desire to learn, grow, and to have a little fun along the way.

As part of the Publicis Groupe Canada, she has taken special interest in her role as an Executive Sponsor on DE&I initiatives, helping infuse new ideas and perspectives into programs across the Groupe. Jess is always open to opportunities to help grow North, MSL and Notch, coach and mentor talent, as well as bring learnings to the agencies’ global partners.

Over the years Jessica has had the pleasure and good fortune to build strategic, creative campaigns and brand moments within the Technology, Real Estate, Retail, CPG, Finance and Travel industries.
