Here is his glossy, press release quote: “When I started in the business, Cliff Freeman was the agency I most wanted to be a part of,” explained Christmann, “It took me 15 years, but I’m finally here. In my mind, Cliff has always stood for humor, but it was the intelligence behind the humor that makes the work truly great. We’re going to bring that Cliff spirit to the new spaces that are transforming our business”.
