We’re always excited to welcome new talent to the agency, but we’re especially thrilled when former employees return back to the VB&P family. This week, the agency welcomed back agency veterans Crockett Jeffers (Associate Creative Director) and Jacqueline Fodor (Director of Art Production) and made a new hire in Jeff Teicher (Director of Experience Design).
“These guys are enormously talented and truly embody VB&P’s culture. We’re thrilled to have them home,” said Will McGinness, Partner and Executive Creative Director, Venables Bell & Partners.
Jeffers is coming back to VB&P from BBDO SF, where he helped oversee creative on Mars pet care, Seeds of Change, 826 Valencia and the California Coastal Commission. During his first six-year stint at VB&P, he contributed to some of the agency’s most notable work, including Audi Super Bowl favorites “Release the Hounds” and “The Chase” as well as Audi “Alien,” Barclays “Fake,” and oversaw work for Slim Jim, Chef Boyardee and Healthy Choice.
Fodor returns to VB&P from Google’s Brand Studio where she helped to launch the Google Store. In her first run with VB&P, she led and partnered with creatives to bring big and bold print, art and experiential concepts to life for clients like Intel, eBay, Audi and Google Fiber.
Teicher permanently joins VB&P, after freelancing in the fall to create Reebok’s “Be More Human” online experience. Reporting into Will McGinness, Teicher will expand the agency's digital creative offering to include a more user-centric design practice. He brings to VB&P twenty years of experience building this capability within brand advertising agencies and startups to produce world class interactive work for brands such as Sony, Burger King, Coke Zero, Beats by Dre, Volkswagen, Google, Facebook and YouTube.
