WrightIMC Hires Brad Cook as Creative Director to Bolster Branding, Web Design, and Content Marketing Services
October 11, 2013 - DALLAS, TX
WrightIMC proudly announced today the hiring of Creative Director Brad Cook. WrightIMC has doubled in size annually since its inception five years ago. Now, as one of the largest online marketing agencies in the Southwest, the addition of Cook gives WrightIMC the depth of talent to handle all aspects of online advertising or marketing for virtually any client.
Cook has led design teams and campaigns for many national brand accounts including Bank of America, Capital One, American Airlines, Hilton, Kraft, TGI Fridays, Charter Communications, AT&T and JCPenney. He has also done work for top Texas and regional brands such as Dickey's Barbecue, Southern Methodist University, Schepps Dairy, and Alltel Wireless.
"I've known Brad for more than a decade since we worked together at Weber Shandwick, and I never allowed myself to hope that I could afford someone of his immense talent," said WrightIMC Founder & CEO Tony Wright. "So, I'm incredibly excited that we've expanded our creative department exponentially by bringing Brad on. And most importantly, our current and future clients will be the real beneficiaries."
Cook is a University of Texas graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. In addition to Weber Shandwick, he previously held art and creative director positions at The Thomas Agency, Harwood Marketing, Hawkeye Agency and Epsilon.
"Blending a diverse background with a love for art and design, I find inspiration in places, music, people and textures -- drawing on the commonplace to develop creative that's anything but," said Cook.
The hiring of Cook presents one dilemma, however, for WrightIMC. There is an ongoing internal struggle among several executives to determine supremacy... at the barbecue pit. Cook also claims to be an amateur grand champion pitmaster. If Cook can cook, and his time in Austin hints that he can, there is a danger of further internal factions developing. WrightIMC is prepared to deal with those delicious internal issues.
