Stanton Kawer
Chairman & CEO / Blue Chip Worldwide

Stanton Kawer, Blue Chip Worldwide’s chairman and CEO, was the agency’s third full-time employee in 1988. Over his nearly 30-year career, Mr. Kawer has grown Blue Chip by developing insights-based strategies and accountability metrics that drive remarkable sales results for clients such as Procter & Gamble, PepsiCo and many others. Beyond that, he has been the driving force behind Blue Chip’s mission of uniting to inspire and believes deeply in our ability to unite the talents of many people to make ideas more lucid and solutions more viable—for our clients, for each other. Stanton has led the agency to unprecedented growth, which landed Blue Chip on Crain’s Chicago Business’ “Fast Fifty” list five years in a row. When he is not busy with his wife and three daughters, Stanton is a prolific practitioner of yoga. So much so that he brought yoga into the workplace as a free benefit for all employees to unite mind, body and spirit.
