HILLSBOROUGH, N.J. (PRWEB) March 03, 2020
Creative marketing agency JK Design has announced two additions to their leadership team.
George Ernst has taken the helm of JK’s creative department as executive creative director. A seasoned leader and skilled designer, he brings 20 years of experience to the agency, including award-winning global campaigns for brands like AT&T, Samsung, Microsoft, and Coca-Cola. He most recently held the position of creative director at Critical Mass, where he managed a partnership with Citi Digital Client Experience and directed more than 30 designers.
“I’m excited to help lead the creative team, and the agency, into the future,” said Ernst. “I have rarely seen so much talent, ambition, and collaboration under one roof, and I feel incredibly fortunate to be a part of this amazing team.”
Chris Batten has joined the agency as director of new business development, responsible for driving growth and building partnerships. During more than 18 years in the advertising industry—including the creation of Arcade Creative Group, an agency within Sony Music—he’s successfully developed large-scale accounts, strategic agency initiatives, and marketing partnerships with the likes of Unilever, American Express, eBay, and Hard Rock Hotels.
“The strategic and creative talent at JK is unbelievable,” said Batten. “I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to bring in new brand partnership opportunities that truly showcase and build on the great work this agency has been doing for over 30 years.”
The new hires will support the agency’s focus on continued growth, expanded capabilities, and ability to deliver unique, highly targeted creative and strategic solutions.
“George combines a passion for powerful, purposeful creative with a sharp focus on nurturing our talent and elevating our work, while Chris is a dynamic communicator and strategist with a proven record of building strong partnerships and helping brands engage with their audiences,” said Martha Marchesi, CEO of JK Design.
“I’m very happy to welcome them both to the team, and confident they will help us take the agency to the next level—and consistently deliver expertly crafted solutions that both meet our clients’ business objectives and wow them.”
