Cashman & Katz Adds Creative Depth

BOSTON In the wake of several recent wins, most notably the Connecticut Lottery, Cashman & Katz said it has hired three creative staffers to work on a range of agency accounts.

The new employees are: art director Gregory Harrow, copywriter Mike Maher and associate art director Kerry Holland.

“Adding these three individuals has allowed us to continue to build the kind of creative department I envisioned when I first came to Cashman & Katz,” said Lew Cohn, vice president and creative director at the independent agency in Glastonbury, Conn. “Agency growth has given us the creative opportunities we need. Now it’s time to deliver.”

Harrow, 36, began his career in promotions at Marketing Corporation of America, and he has also held creative posts in New York at Grey Design and Mezzina/Brown. Maher, 25, had recently been a writer at the Hartford Advocate newspaper. Holland, 22, had recently worked at design studio Alexander Isley in Redding, Conn.

All three will work on the lottery. Harrow will also work on Yankee Candle, and Maher’s other assignments include Ski Sundown.

Cashman & Katz in June wrested the $5 million lottery account from cross-town shop Cronin & Co., following a mandatory review. Cronin had handled the high-profile regional assignment for 15 years.
