Agencies Staff Up With Creative Talent

Several agencies are bolstering their creative ranks with new faces. Creative veteran Vanessa Fortier is joining Mono as the Minneapolis-based agency's first-ever executive creative director, starting October 22. 

Her addition is designed to enable the agency's leadership team to help position the agency to better meet today's evolving landscape. For the past 15 years, Mono's creative department has been run by two of its three founders, Michael Hart and Chris Lange, who operated as managing creative director. 

Although both will still be heavily involved in creative –– now splitting the role of chief creative officer –– they will lead from the founder/leadership role rather than day-to-day responsibilities. A long-time creative leader at the Martin Agency Fortier was most recently, an executive creative director with McCann Worldgroup. 

Tank Design is adding Daniel Pellegrini, ex-Toth + Co, as content creative director to join the branding, design and marketing agency's team to produce work including copywriting, branding, editing, creative direction and video production. He will be based in the agency's flagship Cambridge, MA office.



FCB Chicago names Cherie Davies as senior vice president, group creative director to lead all creative work for FCB Chicago’s health and wellness clients. This role is specific to FCB Chicago and is not associated with FCB Health Network or its 20 global offerings. Prior to joining FCB, Davies worked at a variety of agencies including Sudler & Hennessey, greyhealth and Saatchi & Saatchi Healthcare.

Michael Nuzzo is exiting 360i to join United Entertainment Group (UEG) as senior vice president executive creative director at the company’s New York headquarters. In his new role, Nuzzo will oversee UEG’s global creative offering with the primary focus of driving creative capabilities, architecting global campaigns and servicing UEG’s portfolio of brands.
