2014 MAKER

Olivia Farr


Olivia is a SVP, Senior Account Director at BBDO New York, where she is responsible for leading the Visa North America and global Olympics business as well as HBO and Belvedere vodka.

Born in France but raised just outside of New York, Olivia’s advertising career has taken her from San Francisco to Newport Beach and right back to New York, where she’s been for the past nine years.  She’s launched a line for Levi Strauss & Co., convinced travelers to rest their heads at a Hilton, helped Kraft Foods grow its kids’ beverage businesses around the world, and helped Bank of America navigate through a difficult economy, but she’s most proud of her ability to lead and motivate her teams through thick and thin.

Olivia graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Political Science, and currently lives in the West Village with her boyfriend, Mike. She loves nothing more than a long and lingering weekend brunch, taken al fresco.
