Kelliher, Vick Launch Placement Service

BOSTON A pair of veteran recruitment professionals have formed Kelliher & Vick, which specializes in placing creative talent at ad agencies.

Carol Vick had been associate director of Atlanta-based Creative Circus, the ad school she co-founded in 1995. In the past decade, she has helped craft ad, design and photography courses and placed new graduates and alumni in jobs nationwide. She previously ran a placement firm called Brains.

Carol Lee Kelliher has run her own eponymous recruitment firm here since 1997. Her agency experience includes 15 years at Hal Riney & Partners, during which she held senior creative services and broadcast production posts. She has also worked at Arnold in Boston.

Kelliher in 2003 formed a partnership with London-based executive recruiter Emma Cufflin. Kelliher & Vick, which will maintain offices here and in Atlanta, continues that collaboration to help candidates explore opportunities overseas.
