The Martin Agency Vet Randall Hooker Joins Brunner as Creative Director in Atlanta

By Erik Oster 

Pittsburgh-based agency Brunner recently hired Randall Hooker as sole creative director for its Atlanta office, tasked with overseeing all of that office’s accounts and managing a creative team of six while reporting to chief creative officer Rob Schapiro.

Hooker formerly worked with Schapiro at The Martin Agency, where he served as an associate creative director/art director while Schapior was a creative director. Hooker spent four years with The Martin Agency, beginning in March of 2007, and worked with clients including Tylenol, NASCAR, UPS and Experion. After leaving The Martin Agency, Hooker spent a year as vice president, creative director with Digitas, working on the agency’s Delta and SunTrust accounts. From there he left for small Atlanta agency The Partnership, which sports a staff of about twenty, where he spent four and a half years and most recently served as executive vice president, executive creative director.

“Brunner is the right size for me. It’s adequately staffed, with all the necessary resources, yet small enough to be nimble and quick, and to allow creative freedom,” Hooker said in a statement. 

Brunner, of course, recently attracted attention with its Super Bowl ad for 84 Lumber.
