Jacoby Agency Heats Up

CHICAGO, September 3, 2014 —  Reenergized with new clients and new hires, fiercely independent Jacobs Agency of Chicago is quietly creating some heat.

In the last year Jacobs Agency has been steadily building what is now a robust consumer portfolio.

Recently, JA has brought in Amtrak, Nicor, WE Energies. Weston Food Brands and 6 well-known regional meat brands.

Helping to drive this new client growth are the new personnel additions of Bill Tourlas, VP/Director of Client Services, formerly of FCB, JWT and Havas; and Chicago ad vet, former part-time Jacobs Agency Creative in Residence, now full-time, Group Creative Director, Bernie Pitzel.

“Three years ago when I joined Jacobs Agency I mentioned that the people I work with matter the most to me and that has not changed.  This talented group is totally dedicated to creating an agency where people want to come to work and clients want to come for the work,” stated Pitzel

Bill Tourlas stated, “It’s exciting to make an impact in the agency so quickly.  The last few months has been a whirlwind of great energy, great work and great new clients all coming together.”

Additionally to Bernie and Bill, Jacobs Agency has added new Art Director Joanna Mirowska, Designer Kaitlin Severson, Account Executive Monica Arcaro and Traffic /Production Manager Valerie Sherpa.

Owner Tom Jacobs said, “I set out to create an agency with a passion towards blending smart, open-minded thinking with disruptive creative. So I’m proud to welcome our newest team members who share this mindset and look forward to proving ourselves to our current and future clients.”

Executive Creative Director, Flora Caputo, added, “I’m extremely proud and excited to be part of the momentum we are experiencing.  And if you’ve never heard of us, you will.”

With new creative coming in the fall for their new clients and new pitches on the horizon, Jacobs Agency (Chicago’s best kept secret) may not be much of a secret much longer.

Jacobs Agency founded in 1997 is still a fiercely independent Chicago based full service agency.
