By Egotist / / barrettSF has hired Meredith Karr, as associate creative director, to work on its 2K WWE, Cost Plus World Market, Rubio’s Coastal Grill, and Zappos accounts. Most recently, Karr held the same position at MAL\FOR GOOD in Los Angeles, and before that, she worked at Venables Bell & Partners as a copywriter from 2012 to 2016. “Meredith is a creative superstar in the making. We’ve been trying to hire her for three years, and we finally wore her down. We’re an ambitious place, and she will be a huge part of what we’re building here”, commented Jamie Barrett, Executive Creative Director. “barrettSF’s client roster is incredibly diverse, which will allow me to flex my writing muscles over an array of tones,” Karr said. “But the thing that excites me most is the people at barrettSF. If I’ve learned anything thus far about advertising, it’s that surrounding yourself with good people makes all the difference in the world.” Congrats on the hire.
