Bozell’s Team for AMC’s “The Pitch”

March 21st, 2012

Bozell is thrilled to be one of only 15 advertising agencies in the country to be featured in the upcoming new AMC Network series “The Pitch.”  We couldn’t be more proud of the team for their hard work.

Kim Mickelsen, Managing Partner
Besides running an advertising agency, Kim remains heavily involved in bringing big ideas to many of Bozell’s clients. With almost 30 years in the game, Kim uses her deep experience to help companies build their brands and reach customers with wicked-smart communication insights – a skill she learned while working with juggernaut brands like Arby’s, YWCA, Mid-American Energy, and the NCAA.

Jerry Stoner, Executive Creative Director
A passion for creativity. That’s exactly what drove Jerry to pursue acting. And it’s exactly what made him leave Hollywood for the bright lights of advertising. For 25 years, Jerry has been creating, producing and occasionally voicing commercials for a wide range of regional and national brands. You want all-star experience? Jerry’s past clients include the likes of McDonald’s, Chevrolet, Hyundai and Domino’s Pizza. And with every client he works on, Jerry insists on not only good creative, but good creative that sees results.

Scott Rowe, Partner in Charge of Digital Marketing
Most people don’t speak the language of technology and digital marketing. But Scott isn’t just fluent in it, he’s a master at it. And he uses his expertise to help Bozell’s clients solve their marketing problems on the digital front. From data analysis, mobile marketing, SEO and more, Scott is a leader in effectively taking a company’s communications into the digital world. And if you want a second opinion on his talents, just ask Mooney Aircraft, Timex, M&M Mars and the NCAA Men’s College World Series.

Scott Bishop, Director of Social Media
While most of us use Facebook and Twitter to connect with friends, Scott uses social media to connect brands with people and people with brands. And Bozell isn’t the only one tapping into his skills. He’s been published in the Chicago Tribune, Time Out Chicago, Shout Omaha and on the world’s biggest social media website, Mashable.com. He has also published two social media marketing books for the Financial Times Press.

Bryan Mohr, Senior Copywriter
Bryan lives by the idea that creativity is subjective but intelligence is not. Which is why Bryan’s goal is to always come up with big ideas that are not only creative, but also smart-as-hell. That mentality might also explain why Bryan has his masters in business administration. And he’s put his intelligence to good use, creating award-winning advertising for some of the region’s largest clients, such as First National Bank, the NCAA Men’s College World Series and Omaha Public Power District.

Ryan Dillon, Associate Creative Director/Art Director
A picture is worth 1,000 words. And Ryan is one of the best in the area at making sure his images are saying the right things. Ryan believes in visual story telling that drives people to act. And for a dozen years, Ryan has been doing just that for clients like Kellogg’s, McDonald’s, Disney and the University of Southern California. And if you ever question whether his approach works, just look at the numerous awards on his trophy case.

Nathan Anderson, Information Architect
When Nathan talks about web development, only a few people know what the hell he’s saying. But once people see the results of his skills, they’re speechless. With his vast experience in developing software applications, programming, and building custom databases, Nathan has a gift for turning the impossible into a reality. And he can fit 23 pieces of Bazooka Joe in his mouth.

John BernardinJohn Bernardin, Senior Art Director
When you’ve spent 20-plus years at big agencies, big ideas flow like Alex Bogusky’s hair. And for John, those big ideas are only as good as the visuals that support them. Which is exactly why he’s mastered the art of advertising, using his talents to create TV, Print and Interactive campaigns for some of the biggest household names in the world, like Nissan, Infiniti, Hyundai and Hickory Farms.

Deanna MeylerDeanna Meyler, Ph.D., Director of Strategic Planning and Insights
Some people were just born to do their job. And those that realize it devote their life to being the absolute best. Say “Hello” to Deanna. With a Ph.D in sociology, Deanna has spent her academic and professional career studying how and why people act. She has a deep passion for research and building strategy, and she’s gotten damn good at it. But that’ll happen when you earn your stripes working with such clients as Texas Tourism, Omni Hotels and Bausch & Lomb.

Brian WetjenBrian Wetjen, Partner in Charge of Interactive
When the Internet was spawned from Al Gore’s rib, Brian was right there with his computer and notepad ready to be one of the forefathers of web development in Omaha. At Bozell, he is the brains behind every website that’s produced, making sure it’s smart, pretty and enjoyable to use. If making awesome websites were an orchestra, Brian would be the conductor.
