Jeremy Diessner comes to M/H as associate creative director. He is a Minnesota native (our third in the office) who grew up skiing at a small hill called Buck Hill and eventually moved to Colorado and skied more. It’s basically the plot from Aspen Extreme. Other likes include his children and sandwiches. Grievances include exact change, when people say “it is what it is”, and pouring coffee into the trash at coffee shops. “You can’t just pour hot coffee into garbage. It’s gross.” Dually noted, Jeremy.
Cristina Haithcock comes to M/H as a project manager fresh off an 8-year stint at Swirl. She is a Bay Area native, but you should also know that she’s a first generation American and 100% Italian (that’s where her feisty side comes into play). On the weekends she loves heading up to Napa or watching the Raiders during football season.
Katie Edson is joining the account team as Account Supervisor on AAA. Before M/H, Katie was at Riney working on the Purina Beneful and Stanford Health Care accounts. Prior to SF, she was at Team One in sunny LA working on Lexus. She’s pretty proud of the fact that she can quote Mrs. Doubtfire and Home Alone beginning to end. When Katie’s not busy searching for the city’s best macaroni and cheese, she can be found watching live music, hiking or dancing.
Crystal Chou joins us from a slew of large agencies, including Team Detroit, Universal McCann, OMD, and most recently, Optimedia. She brings extensive media strategy experience having worked on several high profile clients including Ford, Sony Pictures, Infiniti and Nintendo. Outside of work Crystal loves doing yoga, traveling, and, most importantly, cuddling with her dog Chloe who also resembles a real-life teddy bear.
Kelleen Peckham joins the team as a senior brand strategist. She previously worked at BBDO down the street, and before that at Arnold Worldwide in Boston (BAH-STON), and before that at RPA in LA. Kelleen is a Bay Area native whose dog’s name is Dodger (he comes in peace!). She loves making two things from scratch at home: CAKE and BEER (We’re hoping she also loves to share.)
Adam Arber was raised amongst the dark satanic mills of Hebden Bridge, England. After moving down to London, he worked at some of the best agencies, including BBH, St Lukes, CHI&Partners, and Leagas Delaney. During that time he also started two creative businesses that did rather well on the world wide web – Roadkill Toys (macabre plush animals) and Guandong Enterprises (mistake mugs for the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Kate Middleton). Then Adam journeyed to the promised land. Stopping briefly at CHI Chicago, before coming to M/H as associate creative director. He thinks it’s the best move he’s ever made.
Welcome to the team, ya lookers!
