David&Goliath announced today the hiring of three new creative leaders: Dino Spadavecchia, group creative director, and longtime creative partners Chris Hutchinson and Driscoll Reid as creative directors. The three officially joined the agency’s 50-person creative department this summer, reporting to D&G’s newly appointed Chief Creative Officer, Colin Jeffery.
“Our agency has experienced considerable growth over the last few years," said CCO Colin Jeffery. “Adding Dino, Chris, and Driscoll to our creative management team will allow us to take advantage of the momentum and continue to elevate our creative product. In the last 10 to 15 years, these guys have produced effective and award-winning work for big brands. I’ve admired their work for a long time and am thrilled to have them on board as leaders and mentors to our creative department.”
Spadavecchia joins the agency most recently from Leo Burnett, where he served as SVP/Creative Director since 2012, working on General Motors. Hutchinson and Reid join from TBWA\Chiat\Day, where they created one of this year’s most visible World Cup campaigns for Adidas’ Brazuca. In their new roles, Spadavecchia, Hutchinson, and Reid will touch many of the brands on the agency’s roster, including Kia, CA Lottery, VIZIO, and a few pieces of business that have yet to be announced.
Spadavecchia’s 15-year career in advertising includes work on Chevrolet, HP, Hyundai, Logitech, Mazda, Nintendo, Toyota, and Dew Action Sports Tour. He’s spent time at several prestigious agencies in addition to Leo Burnett, including Goodby, Silverstein & Partners and Saatchi & Saatchi LA, among others.
Hutchinson and Reid met during ad school in 2004 at W+K 12 and have since worked together at many well-known shops. They spent a total of five years working together at Wieden+Kennedy’s Portland and Tokyo offices, with their main focus on the flagship Nike brand. Between the two of them, they’ve worked on Nike, LIVESTRONG, Electronic Arts, Coca-Cola and Old Spice, and most recently, Southwest Airlines, Adidas and Gatorade.
David&Goliath’s creative department has been growing at a steady pace in 2014, adding fifteen new employees since January and accounting for half of the agency’s total new hires this year.view more - Hires, Wins & Business
