About Norm Shearer:

Partner & COO at Cactus

Norm has been Chief Creative Officer at Cactus since 2003, putting his mark on every piece of creative that comes through our building. At the core of Norm’s philosophy is the notion that everyone needs to be creative. The term “creative” is not individual to the designers and copywriters of Cactus, but for our entire team. It’s about solving problems in unexpected ways and creating advantages. “If everyone is doing their job, they are being creative. It’s about being resourceful and connecting dots in a way that’s unexpected or different.” With over 20 years of experience in the business, Norm’s blue-collar, “work hard, play hard” approach to creative has earned Cactus accolades from Cannes, The One Show, SXSW and countless others.

Norm shares his ample knowledge (and Dad jokes) as a guest lecturer in his spare time, speaking on creative thinking and design. He served as an Adjunct Professor for eight years at his alma mater, CU Boulder, and was named Alumni of the Year for CU’s Advertising and Journalism School in 2013.
