1950-

American advertising executive and entrepreneur

Berlin was adopted as a baby and grew up in a loving family in Germantown, Pennsylvania. Nevertheless, he felt different from others, even fantasizing that his birth parents were Martians.

He started out as a copywriter for Ogilvy & Mather, but has gone on to found independent advertising agencies and also work for other, agencies, in an unusually varied career. In 2002 his Berlin, Cameron & Partners agency was bought by WPP Group as part of their new subsidiary, Red Cell, of which he will be a co-chief executive and chief creative officer. BCP's clients included Coca-Cola, General Motors, the National Basketball Association, Reebok, Ralston Purina, Black and Decker, the Prudential, the Washington Post, Nikon, and the NBC.
