The Brass Brassiere Moves To The Burbs

Dana Anderson, a bold-face name in Chicago advertising, is the new senior VP-marketing, strategy and communication at Kraft Foods, according to Ad Age.

Ms. Anderson is a past president and CEO of both DDB and FCB in Chicago, and has the distinction of being one of the first women in Chicago advertising to have risen to that level. She is a highly regarded agency executive known for her dynamic presentation style and keeping a brass brassiere in her office, as a sign that she’s just as tough as the boys.
