Chuck Porter on the Key to Advertising Success: ‘Don’t Do It Unless You Love It’

Our lovely chat with MDC chief strategist/CP+B chairman Chuck Porter winds down this week with a little insight and advice from the ad industry veteran. In the third and final part of our Media Beat interview with Porter, the exec reveals the keys to achieve advertising success (“Do something great and everything will take care of itself”) and what qualities he and CP+B look for in a strong job candidate. Truth to be told, for the latter, the agency’s criteria has remained the same since day one according to Porter, who tells us that to make the grade at CP+B, it takes “brains, talent, passion, curiosity and experience, in that order.”
