I am insanely excited to forge new relationships and to produce game changing advertising.

Meers, a full-service advertising agency located in Kansas City, announced today that Dave Altis has joined the agency as Executive Creative Director. Altis will be responsible for providing senior leadership to the creative team, as well as developing strong creative strategy and execution for all Meers clients.
