Duncan Channon Taps Kovacevich For ECD Role

San Francisco independent advertising agency Duncan Channon is adding some firepower to its creative team to address recent client additions. It has appointed John Kovacevich as executive creative director. 

Kovacevich joins the agency after three and a half years as a freelance creative director and writer, working directly with brands like Facebook, Airbnb and Google, as well as with agencies including 215McCann and Mekanism. His career includes stints at Goodby Silverstein & Partners and FCB West.  

“John’s creative talent impressed immediately, and is rooted in a deeper understanding of our clients’ business challenges,” said Michael Lemme, chief creative officer, Duncan Channon. “He freelanced with us this summer and we just decided we didn’t want him to leave. He was a fit from day one.”  



Kovacevich will report to Lemme and will work on a variety of clients, including some of Duncan Channon’s new engagements. The agency has added Kat Von D Beauty, the Golden State Warriors, InnovAsian Cuisine and TriNet, a leading cloud-based provider of HR services, to its client roster this year. These recent wins come in addition to a significant expansion of the agency’s anti-tobacco work for the California Department of Public Health’s CA Tobacco Control Program in 2018.
