Cory Eisentraut

Creative Director / Writer / Raconteur

The short story:
I like to make things. Always have.
Stories. Films. Pretty pictures. Products better. A commotion.

The slightly longer story:
After graduating from the University of Western Ontario and then studying under Canadian ad legends, Joanne Lehman and Wilf McOstrich at Humber College’s Media Copywriting Program, I began my career at Cundari. Remarkably, that’s where I’ve been for the last 13 years. I have risen through the ranks at Cundari from Summer Intern to Junior Copywriter and so on all the way to Group Creative Director. Along the way, I have applied my talents for writing, visual storytelling and most importantly, problem-solving to create award-winning work for BMW, the ROM, Dempster’s, RONA, Maple Leaf Foods and SickKids Hospital.

The important, slightly more boastful story:
In my time with Cundari there has been tremendous change and growth. I am proud to say that I have been a major contributor to this transformation. I was on the pitch team that won dozens of new accounts. Dempster’s, Maple Leaf Foods, CIBC, RONA, the ROM, 3M, TELUS Business Solutions, Northeastern Ontario Tourism, and IVEY to name a few. I also helped pitch and re-win BMW Canada, and then helped Cundari make it to the final 2 agencies vying for the BMW USA business. Another obvious example of this transformation is the way in which we are viewed by our peers and our industry: Cundari has consistently finished in Marketing and Strategy’s Top Ten Agencies for the last 4 years. In addition, we were ranked 6th in the Big Won Global Ranking for the “Top Digital Agency in the World”. Remarkably, Cundari was the only Canadian agency on the list.

The wrap-up:
To me, there is nothing more exhilarating, frustrating, and ultimately life affirming than watching an idea come to life. I count myself among the lucky ones because every day I get to make things.
And what could be better than that?
