About Christopher B. Lee

Chris Lee is a senior lecturer and AdLab advisor in BU’s College of Communication. He comes to academia as an award-winning, multiple hat-wearing, executive creative director/writer at top agencies like Mullen, Hill Holliday and Leo Burnett. He has 25+ years of experience developing brand strategy and omnichannel creative content programs in industries ranging from global enterprise software to local supermarkets and pro sports teams—including the Boston Bruins and the Celtics. Be sure to ask Chris about a TED Talk that sprang from a viral rap anthem he produced with Boston Police officers and the Boys & Girls Club of Dorchester.

Over his career, Chris has taught continuing education and college-level courses at Bentley College, Suffolk University and at BU’s very own Creative Cafe portfolio reviews. His focus is on what real world, mission-driven advertising is all about. And how the best creative work (AI or no AI) springs from great business strategy.

When not heads-down with creative endeavors and social causes, you’ll find Chris soaking up the sun with his family on Priscilla Beach in Plymouth.
