Well, why does LA need to get all the attention anyways? Deutsch New York has chimed in with the news that Matt McKay officially started this week as SVP/group creative director on accounts including Microsoft and will also work on new business efforts. While McKay has spent the last few months freelancing at BBDO NY, in terms of full-time agency work, the creative most recently had a two-year stint as a CD/art director at JWT New York. At said shop, McKay led creative on Stride and Trident Gum as well as Halls cough drops.
During his career, McKay, who perhaps most notably created the “Two Guys” campaign for Sonic, had gigs at the likes of R&R Partners in Vegas, Barkley and Merkley + Partners.
