GY&K Continues to Attract Elite Marketing Talent

GY&K has made tremendous investments in our own capabilities over the past few years, recruiting talent (including an Emmy-winning video production team from ESPN) and opening offices in Boston and LA. We have become something of a haven for all-star marketers from around the country, while still headquartered in Live Free or Die New Hampshire.

We are proud to announce that this trend is continuing, with the addition of new team members who bring a broad spectrum of experiences and skills:

Michael Wachs has joined GY&K/Antler as the Chief Creative Officer. He has worked with some of the largest agencies in the Northeast, most recently as the Executive Creative Director for Roundarch Isobar where he oversaw all creative output for North America. Michael brings 18 years of experience helping develop memorable brand experiences both on and offline. The desire to truly merge digital and tangible experiences led him to the full-service range of offerings that GY&K/Antler provides.

Michael enjoys getting his hands dirty guiding the creative process, preaching integration, advocating for consumers and users, as well as managing brands across a wide variety of communication and technology channels including: digital design and marketing (Web, Mobile, Social, and Loyalty Programs), brand identity development, online and general advertising, and consulting. His ability to provide strategic, creative and engaging solutions has benefitted numerous leading brands such as HBO, Avis, AT&T, Braun, Fidelity, Air Force, BNY Mellon, Hasbro, American Express, KCRW, and Time Warner Cable.

Morgan Chadwick is joining our in-house, Emmy Award-winning video production team Big Brick Productions as an Editor/Associate Producer on November 20, 2013. He comes to us from Denver, CO where he has been working as a freelance editor/motion graphic designer/animator. Before freelancing, Morgan worked as the lead editor/motion designer at Motive, a digital, experiential, and social marketing agency in Denver. While at Motive, Morgan created dynamic video projects for clients such as Mountain Dew, Sobe, Native Eyewear, and Van’s Natural Foods. He’s also worked as an editor/animator at Xylem Agency in Denver, where his clients included Duracell, Jimmy John’s, Jack Link’s Beef Jerky, and Jamba Juice.

Morgan’s strong animation background provides a great compliment to the skills already in place with the Big Brick creative team.
