Full-service digital marketing, branding and advertising agency On Ideas have grown their team with the addition of four new directors: Director of Connections Planning and Optimization Bryan Cherok, Associate Creative Director Chris Nott, Associate Creative Director-Copywriting John Huggins, and Director of Business Development Jason Kirk.
Charleston native Bryan Cherok will be responsible for all metrics, analytics and insights for client accounts. He arrives at On Ideas having “spent years submerged in work revolving around finding the answers in digital data,” working with clients including Bridgestone America’s Tire Operations, Firestone Complete Auto Care, SERVPRO Industries and Le Creuset.
Chris Nott arrives at On Ideas with over ten years of advertising and creative experience. Nott was the founder of Base Camp Advertising and served as President of the Richmond Ad Club. His work for clients such as Capitol One, Discovery Health Channel, VirginiaTourism and Crystal Cruise Line have led to recognition at One Show, Communication Arts and the Effies.
Miami Ad School and Florida International University graduate John Huggins brings “valuable experience from his past involvement with both large national brands and smaller organizations.” His past work includes Coca-Cola’s 2008 Olympic Games campaign and a 2009 American Idol promotion. Huggins was also a copywriter on the St. Vincent’s HealthCare’s “Above Beyond Because” campaign, for the TV, print and interactive executions. He has been awarded “Best of Show” for the Central Pennsylvania Addys, as well as “Best Interactive” and “Best Direct Marketing” for the Philly Golds.
Jason Kirk arrives at On Ideas with a non-profit background. His experience includes work at the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville and the South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston. As director of development at the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, Kirk “more than doubled contributed income from 2011 to 2013.”
“After more than 10 years working with non-profits, I knew it would have to be a very special opportunity to encourage my return to the private sector, and On Ideas is definitely that perfect fit,” Kirk said. “This agency is absolutely top-notch at what it does, and I couldn’t be more excited to work with a group comprised of the most dedicated, creative and visionary individuals imaginable.”
“We’re proud to welcome such top-notch talent to On Ideas,” said Managing Partner West Herford. “Each of them brings a skill set that immediately broadens our ability to tackle both the anticipated and unforeseen marketing challenges out there today.”
