Now that the youth/family-oriented Burger King account is safely in its grasp, Culver City, CA-based shop Pitch has loaded up on staff, including eight senior executives handling everything from creative to account.

Among those joining the fold are David Zorn and JD Jurentkuff, who have signed on as creative directors. Zorn and Jurentkuff were most recently ACD’s at Deutsch LA, where they helped create the “Marcus Rivers” PSP campaign for PlayStation. Additionally, Juliet Diamond joins Pitch as executive producer, DDB LA alum Mark Snow comes aboard as copywriter and former McCann Erickson NY ACD Erica Green arrives as art director.
