Jon “Krev” Krevolin is relocating from New York to Detroit to join Doner as executive vice president, executive creative director.
In the role, Krevolin will provide creative direction and leadership across the agency’s client roster.
“At Doner, we continue to attract creative boundary breakers like Krev to Detroit, because we can nurture every creative passion – traditional, digital, directing and even comedy – all under one roof. When you have expansive capabilities and ambitious clients, there is nothing holding creatives back from bringing audacious things to market,” Doner global chief creative officer Eric Weisberg, who joined the agency in that role around a year ago, said in a statement. “We’re very excited to have Krev join our growing team and help us push the creative bar ever higher.”
Krevolin joins Doner from R/GA New York, where he spent the past year serving as creative director and working with clients including Beats, Verizon, the NFL, E*Trade and Mercedes. Prior to that he spent two years as a group creative director with 360i, where he worked with clients such as Coca-Cola, Kraft, Checker’s/Rally’s and Canon. That followed four years with BBDO New York, working with brands such as Gillette and the NFL, and seven years with JWT New York as a vice president, creative director working with clients such as GE, Pepsi and Right Guard. Before launching his career in advertising, Krevolin was a stand up comedian in New York.
Krevolin’s hire follows the arrival of 11 new hires to Doner’s Detroit office in May.
