SOMERVILLE, N.J., Nov. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Baldwin & Obenauf, Inc. (BNO), an award-winning creative agency with a roster of clients that includes Johnson & Johnson, MasterCard, and BASF, has named a new president and moved its headquarters to Somerville, NJ.
Trista Walker, who is currently Chief Marketing Officer at BNO, will replace president and founder Joanne Obenauf. Obenauf will retain the title of CEO, and continue to act as an ambassador for the agency.
Walker will work closely with longtime BNO senior vice presidents Rachelle Powell (Client Services) and George Jackus (Creative Services) in spearheading agency growth.
A veteran of interactive marketing since 1997, Walker has led teams at multiple agencies for clients including the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Merrill Lynch, Pfizer, General Motors, and Washington Mutual. Prior to joining BNO, she was the founder and president of Blue Flame Partners, a high-growth marketing communications agency. Walker currently serves on the board of directors of Aria Health System in Philadelphia, PA.
In step with its naming of a new president, the creative agency has also taken over and renovated 15,000 square feet of office space on Division Street in downtown Somerville. "Our new headquarters are fun, engaging, and built for streamlined collaboration—they energize our core mission of being innovative, inspiring, and involved in ways that solve our clients' business challenges," said Walker. "We believe this will help take both our agency and our clients to new levels."
The actions come after several years of strong growth including twenty percent staff growth in 2014; the addition of new and innovative video and PR capabilities; and expansion of its client roster to welcome Marsh & McLennan, the U.S. Dairy Export Council, Animas Corporation, and The Columbia Group.
