BOSTON, June 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Global brand experience agency Jack Morton Worldwide today announces its appointment of Johnny Marques as SVP, Executive Creative Director for its New York office.
Tara Back, President & Managing Director in New York, said: "Johnny has a highly awarded and varied creative background. He's worked above the line, through the line, below the line and online. Best of all, he's a terrific fit for our culture—he's as committed as we are to taking the work seriously, but not ourselves."
Marques is charged with continuing to build the creative team in New York, one of the agency's largest global offices, which works with clients including Walmart, IBM and Samsung.
Most recently, Marques was Executive Creative Director for Saatchi & Saatchi X. His 17 years of experience span three continents and a wide variety of clients including Adidas, Calvin Klein Fragrances, Coca-Cola, Columbia Tristar Pictures, LG, Shell, Smirnoff and Sony Ericsson.
Marques has built and led high-performing creative teams and departments for Saatchi & Saatchi X, Iris Worldwide (in both London and New York) and the Haygarth Group in the UK.
"Johnny has a passion for helping people be the best they can be," said Josh McCall, Chairman & CEO. "Like our clients, he knows the value of 'brilliant ideas, brilliantly executed'—and he thrives on challenging himself, his team and his clients to achieve disruptive creative solutions that cut through the clutter. All while having fun along the way!"
