Denver and Colorado Springs, Colo., Jan. 21, 2020 — Vladimir Jones (VJ) welcomed a new director of digital and data and filled critical roles on its media, account services and creative teams. All four professionals work primarily in VJ’s Denver office.
Jön White, now the independent advertising agency’s director of digital and data, will lead the digital team in developing, implementing and optimizing digital marketing strategies for all clients. He will also serve on the agency’s leadership team. Prior to joining VJ, Jön worked with international brands such as Toyota, Lexus and Bank of Hawaii.
“We put digital activations first in the development of creative and media plans, making campaigns that are purpose-built for engaging audiences efficiently and cost effectively,” said Meredith Vaughan, VJ CEO. “We are confident that Jön and his team will continuously evolve our work in building rich ecosystems for business growth.”
VJ also welcomed three other new team members. Formerly at Wieden+Kennedy, Catherine Burdick is the agency’s new associate media director. She will provide essential training and leadership to the media team, and guide planning and buying on all agency accounts. Brittany Livingston, previously working for Mastercard’s in-house agency, became an account supervisor. And Peyton Hopkins joined the creative team as copywriter following a similar role at Motive.
“Any time of year is the right time to welcome talented people to our team, but especially the first month of our 50th year in business as an independent agency,” added Vaughan. “This year we will continue to invest in and focus on our culture, celebrating the traits that differentiate us from other agencies. It all starts with our people.”
