Career[edit | edit source]

In mid 1999, Jutkowitz left his role as chairman and partner of the New York-based public relations and research firm Global Strategy Group to join as partner and president of BSMG's KRC Research division.[2][3][4] Prior to joining KRC Research, Jutkowitz worked with Chase Bank, New Line Cinema, and Simon & Schuster.[5] He was named president of the management consulting firm Westhill Partners in October 2002. Jutkowitz also served as president and CEO of the company's marketing research and consulting division, Westhill Consulting (now known as FTI).[6]

Jutkowitz established the content and digital firm Group SJR in 2004.[7][8] Group SJR was acquired by Hill+Knowlton Strategies (H+K) and the multinational advertising and public relations company WPP plc in June 2013.[9][10] Jutkowitz was subsequently named H+K's vice chairman and chief global strategist.[1][7]

In June 2015, J. Walter Thompson and Group SJR announced the launch of a content marketing company called Colloquial. Jutkowitz was named CEO of the newly formed firm.[11][12] That same month, the messaging service Snapchat, the British newspaper Daily Mail, and WPP announced the launch of a content marketing and social agency called Truffle Pig,[10][13] which originated from discussions between WPP founder and CEO Martin Sorrell and Jon Steinberg, who serves as CEO of Daily Mail US. Jutkowitz, a friend of Steinberg, was recruited to serve as the agency's CEO by Sorrell.[8][10][14] Jutkowitz is credited for the agency's name, which he had previously wanted to use for Group SJR.[8]

Jutkowitz was named CEO of H+K U.S., a division of Hill+Knowlton Strategies, in May.[15] He maintains his role as CEO and managing partner of Group SJR.[7] In mid 2017, Jutkowitz ranked number 32 in PRWeek's "Power List".[16] His book, The Strategic Storyteller: Content Marketing in the Age of the Educated Consumer, was published by John Wiley & Sons in August 2017.[17][18][19]
