Making waves in the talent pool

These days it’s hard to keep up with all the comings and goings in the agency world. But every once in a while someone makes a big enough splash that it sends waves throughout the entire pool.

This is one of those.

Recently, Mitchell + Palmer announced that Joe Quatrone will be joining their team as Creative Director. Joe, for those who may not be familiar, was a longtime Creative Director at Drake Cooper, before moving from Boise to Seattle about eight years ago. In Seattle, Joe worked at GreenRubino for several years, before branching out on his own with Artists, Vagrants and Thieves in 2015.

Joe brings more than 25 years of experience and additional creative muscle to the Mitchell Palmer team. Over the years he’s worked with clients such as Microsoft, Xerox, Hewlett Packard, Micron, Delta Dental, Coast Hotels, Idaho Lottery, United Dairymen of Idaho, Idaho Tourism, Boy Scouts of America, the LDS Church and many more.

The folks at Mitchell Palmer are obviously pleased with Joe’s decision to join their team. “We’re extremely pleased to have Joe as part of our team,” said Tom Donahoe, Creative Partner at Mitchell Palmer. “We’ve been recruiting Joe for many years, and the lure of low pay and impossible hours proved too irresistible,” he added.

Congratulations, and welcome back Joe.
