McCanners of MPLS | Duke Borgerding

Welcome to McCanners of MPLS, a short feature on the great people that help make up our agency. 


How long have you been at McCann and what do you do here? I’ve been here for over 3 years, this time…plus a year right out of college. I’m an Associate Media Director working on strategy development for Johnsonville and Miracle-Ear.

Have you ever cut your own hair? All the time ;)

Favorite go-to drink? Umm… I have three staples. Water, Diet Pepsi, and Grain Belt… not necessarily in that order. 

Best date spot in MPLS? I have three kids, so I’m probably the worst person to seek dating locales from. Maybe Minnehaha Falls with dinner at Sea Salt

What movie makes you cry/laugh? Anything classic Will Ferrell 

Name 3 things on your bucket list: Go back to Australia, start my own brewery, and finish building a custom motorcycle/hot rod

Who are your creative heroes? Ikea… anyone that can figure out how to get a whole living room into a cardboard box that fits in a hatchback is pretty creative in my book.

Favorite quote? “Where ever you go, there you are” …total dad joke!

What do you enjoy most when you’re not working? Spending time with my wife and kids

Go-to karaoke song? Used to be The Thunder Rolls by Garth Brooks

Favorite curse word? Let’s just say it’s a four letter word
