It’s been a wild couple of months here at Victors & Spoils. The Havas investment, tons of new client work, and lots of good strategic momentum on our digital platform. But no matter how digitalV&S becomes, we're still an agency where people make the difference between work that's great, and work that's merely good.
As I’ve said before, it feels a bit like we’re flying an airplane as we’re building it. A daunting task, no matter your altitude. And trying to change the way an agency works, fundamentally, is alofty goal. But the brave souls here are plugging along, making it happen, day by day. Creating, changing, adapting, evolving. Making V&S the dynamic,exciting place it is.
And as we’ve grown and changed, so has the responsibility of the team here.
Noah Clark and Chad Walker have been promoted to Co-Executive Creative Directors. They’ll be responsible for managing the crowd, running the creative department, and keeping everythinglively around here on a day-to-day basis.
Noah’s been with us since the beginning. In that time, he’s worked on everything from Harley-Davidson to Western Union to Smartwool. Prior to V&S, Noah was at CP+B, where he worked on Best Buy, Domino’s, VW, and Activision.
