Denver-based ad agency Cactus has appointed Kelly Rowntree as its new Chief Strategy Officer.
Previously Rowntree was co-CEO and Director of Strategy at Griffin Archer, Minneapolis, MN. Earlier she held strategic leadership roles at agencies Crispin Porter & Bogusky, Carmichael Lynch and Campbell Mithun. She has led strategy for clients like Sleep Number, Domino’s, Subaru, and Vrbo.
According to Cactus President & CMO Jeff Graham, attracting a talent like Rowntree is a “game-changer” for the agency, and one made possible in part because of the shop’s 40% revenue growth over the last two years.
And the agency is poised for more growth this year—and estimated increase of 35% with a 60% uptick in staff headcount.
