Mintz & Hoke Hires Senior Creatives From FCB, Crispin

BOSTON-Mintz & Hoke has recruited a seasoned creative team to work on its Ingersoll-Rand account.
Senior copywriter David Banta and senior art director David Swartz are the first hires by chief creative director Chuck Borghese, who joined the Avon, Conn., agency in December.
Banta comes from Foote, Cone & Belding in San Francisco, where he was senior copywriter on the Dockers account. Swartz was most recently senior art director on the AvMed and Giro accounts at Crispin, Porter & Bogusky in Miami.
Borghese called the pair “tremendously gifted . . . They bring separate and distinct qualities that work powerfully together to create outstanding work. They’ll play an important role in helping me bring our creative product to the next level.”
