Advertising agency McKinney has named veteran ad executive Adam Levine as its new chief marketing officer.
Levine most recently was global brand marketing director at giant ad agency Deutsch in New York. During his stint there, according to McKinney, he led the agency’s successful efforts to win clients such as Microsoft, Intel, Revlon and Zoloft.
Levine succeeds Michael Densmore, who was hired last year to be McKinney’s first-ever chief marketing officer. Densmore left the agency in May to join Bartle Bogle Hegarty in New York.
In his new job at Durham-based McKinney, by far the Triangle’s largest ad agency with 190 employees, Levine will oversee efforts to attract new business and expand the agency’s brand.
As did Densmore, Levine will split his time between McKinney’s New York office and its headquarters in Durham. He will continue to reside in New York.
McKinney’s roster of clients includes Nationwide, Travelocity, Samsung, Sherwin-Williams, ESPN, Gold’s Gym and Big Boss Brewing.
