The History of Creative Spirit
Creative Spirit was founded in Australia by David Nobay, currently Creative Chairman/Founder at Marcel Advertising in Sydney. He employed one individual with Down Syndrome who went on to become a successful, engaging employee and the role model for many other employees.
In 2016, Laurel Rossi, Gina Grillo, and David Nobay partnered to start Creative Spirit US, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. A successful pilot program was launched in southern California and New York in 2017. Today, there are more than 50 companies in the process of establishing positions with Creative Spirit.
