Nellie Kim and Chris Hirsch have been promoted to co-creative directors of John St., the Toronto-based independent agency behind Wiser’s, Mitsubishi and ING Direct, to name a few.

Both Kim and Hirsch have been with the agency for almost eight years. In a statement, Angus Tucker, co-creative director and partner at John St., said they’d both been “instrumental” in the agency’s growth and success.

“They have created some of the country’s most successful and award winning campaigns,” he said. “They are innovators who have helped us evolve and break new ground in the digital and experiential worlds.”

Tucker and co-creative director Stephen Jurisic will remain in their roles as agency partners, as well as executive creative directors.
