Duncan Channon just dropped us a line to announce the hire of Katrina Michie as associate creative director. Michie spent the previous three years as a freelance associate creative director and art director with agencies such as Eleven and Jack Morton Worldwide, and she’s also been at Digitas North America, Tribal DDB and Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners.
“I know it’s press release table stakes to say ‘we’re thrilled Kat’s here,’ but we’re legit thrilled that she’s here!” said John Kovacevich, executive creative director, Duncan Channon. “She got her start in digital and social and then expanded into TV and other traditional mediums, so she knows how to craft great ideas for the places people actually see them.”
“She also shares our belief that advertising can ‘do better’ and, when done right, can reflect real truth and even shape culture,” added Kovacevich. “We look forward to her pushing us and our clients to explore new territories that you don’t always see in advertising.”
“It’s kind of a unicorn to find an agency that does good work and has a good culture,” said Michie. “DC makes work with empathy and truth, plus their clients really trust them. It’s also refreshing to see DC leadership of all genders prioritize working hard equally with time for family and other interests.”
Congrats on the new hire.
