Jacobs Agency Builds Account & Creative Teams

CHICAGO, June 16, 2014 — Jacobs Agency is pleased to welcome two new members to its creative and account services teams: Kaitlin Severson, Jr. Art Director/Production Artist, and Monica Arcaro, Account Manager.

Kaitlin comes to Jacobs Agency from Celtic Chicago, where she worked as a Jr. Art Director on clients such as Lofthouse Cookies, Ardent Mills and Central Life Sciences. In her new role at Jacobs Agency, Kaitlin will be supporting clients like John Morrell Food Group, HIMSS and Ace Hardware. With a BFA in Graphic Design and Advertising from the University of Iowa, Kaitlin brings an insatiable appetite for learning and growing as a creative.

“I’m in awe of Kaitlin’s creative muscle and design aesthetic,” said Flora Caputo, VP and Executive Creative Director. “With her raw talent and detail-oriented, organized work style, I’m confident she’ll add tremendous value to the Agency and our clients alike. We’re thrilled she’s here!”

Before joining Jacobs Agency, Monica rose through the ranks at Rhea + Kaiser where she cut her teeth on fast-paced, sophisticated accounts like Bayer CropScience and Loyola Healthcare. Having graduated from the University of Dayton with a BS in Business Administration/Marketing and a minor in Photography, Monica is uniquely strategy-focused and creatively inclined. At Jacobs Agency, she will be adding her talents to accounts like the AMA, the Federal Reserve Banks, Maplehurst Bakeries and Weston Foods.

“We’re all very impressed by the fact that Monica is both a strategic thinker and an efficient doer. As a self-starter, she’s shown that she’s not afraid to jump in and get her hands dirty with new clients and projects, which is exactly what we need. We’re glad to have her!” said Bill Tourlas, VP and Director of Client Services.
