Josh Tumelty

EVP, Executive Creative Director, Discovery USA, USA

Early in Josh’s career, he cut his creative teeth at Havas Worldwide (Formerly Euro RSCG Worldwide) and quickly moved through the ranks from designer to senior art director — accumulating over a dozen creative awards during his first 3 years in the industry. From there he would go on to become the creative lead for an independent interactive and branding agency, focused on healthcare technology. Shortly after, Josh’s continued creative success opened the door to a coveted opportunity with Saatchi & Saatchi Healthcare and the Publicis Healthcare network. 

His passion for uncovering profound human insights would help lead to the creation of more meaningful brand experiences for his clients. This passion, coupled with his creative curiosity, has awarded Josh the opportunity to gain a wide range of industry experience, from global launches to first-in-class compounds, to working with rare forms of cancer. 

Currently serving as the Executive Creative Director of Discovery USA (Philadelphia & Chicago), Josh believes strongly that creativity can solve any problem. With over a decade of agency experience behind him, he is driven to ensure that the creative product is inspiring, innovative, and deeply rooted in strategic thinking. Most recently Josh played a critical role in the integration of 3 agencies into a single identity focused on delivering purpose-driven brands. He’s proud to be a part of the new Discovery USA which was recognized by Medical Marketing and Media as one of the 100 Biggest Healthcare Marketing and Advertising Agencies as well as Advertising Age as one of the 2015 Top Agencies. 

None of Josh’s success would be possible without the tremendous talent that has supported him and the partnerships he’s forged with some of the industry’s top clients, such as: Abbott Nutrition, Agilent Technologies, AstraZeneca Oncology, Athena Diagnostics, GlaxoSmithKline, Genentech, IMS Health, Novartis Oncology, Pfizer, Sanofi, Sanofi Pasteur, and Stryker Orthopaedics.
