Today in Press Releases, JWT’s Atlanta office has promoted two of its top creatives after a string of successes for energy sector clients.
Creative Directors Dustin Tamilio and Jeremy Jones (above) have been named as the office’s GCD and ECD, respectively; the change is effective immediately.
The release is unique in that its opening attributes the promotions to the directors’ “pioneering work for Shell brands”, more specifically citing “the agency’s most buzz-worthy campaigns and projects for Jiffy Lube, Shell, Quaker State and Pennzoil” (here’s one of the spots in question).
Jones and Tamilio have worked together as a copy/art team for some time. In 2009 they picked up a Young Lions award for a New York Crime Stoppers campaign when both worked at Pyper Paul + Kenney Tampa, and after leaving that shop they worked together at 22squared before joining JWT in 2012.
Tamilio will serve as GCD for the entire Shell portfolio while Jones will work on additional accounts including FEMA, SCANA Energy, USVI and Transamerica.
