“I’m excited to welcome Heather and Marques to Deutsch. The amount of care and craft they bring to everything they do, in addition to being super nice people, makes them a great addition to our team,” Kelleher explained, in a statement. “April 10 will be the duo’s official start date—they have been freelancing at Deutsch for the past two months, and they will work across the Agency’s clients and on new business efforts.”
Recently, English held freelancing gigs at agencies including Joan and Figliulo & Partners. Before freelancing, she was a Creative Director at 360i on Oscar Mayer. She has also worked on Oreo, Hanes, and Feeding America.
Gartrell’s agency experience includes recently freelancing at Joan on General Mills and Booking.com. Prior to Joan, he worked at BBDO on Priceline, Bud Light, and AT&T. He also spent time at Grey NY (DIRECTV and NFL).
“We’re pumped to rejoin forces with Dan and all the talented people at Deutsch,” added English and Gartrell, who previously worked with Kelleher while at Grey on the award-winning DIRECTV “Cable Effects” campaign. “Joining this team gives us a unique opportunity to work somewhere that’s both creatively and culturally exciting.”
