Tutssel has chaired many international awards and has served on both the Film and Titanium and Integrated juries at Cannes.
As the creative leader of Leo Burnett Worldwide, Tutssel oversees the work of 94 global offices in 84 countries.
His work has earned creative accolades, including the Cannes Grand Prix for Mercedes-Benz "Skidmarks" in 1997 and a number of other Gold Cannes Lions across different media.
Under his leadership, Leo Burnett has won top awards including the Titanium Lion at Cannes last year.
Prior to joining Leo Burnett USA in 2002, Tutssel was executive creative director of Leo Burnett London, during which time its clients, McDonald's and Heinz, were named Advertiser of the Year in the UK.
Terry Savage, festival chairman, said: "In just a few years, the Titanium and Integrated Lions have become the most talked about awards in Cannes."
Tutssel said: "This category is an incubator for ideas. Ideas that are so unique, new and pure that they cannot be labelled in a conventional way.
"It awards ideas that have found a higher level of integration and category-defying work that pushes the industry forward. In short, these are the most precious and prestigious Lions to win."
The Titanium and Integrated Lions launched in 2003.
