Here’s Today’s Minneapolis Creative Moves Roundup

Let’s kill two birds with one stone today, shall we? Ten months after being promoted from senior copywriter to ACD (here he is sporting an interesting hoodie that depicts his career trajectory), Matt Burgess continues to move up the Olson ladder as he’s now been made creative director at the Minneapolis-based agency. Burgess joined Olson nearly four years ago from Campbell Mithun. Prior to that, he had stints at Best Buy, JWT New York and Martin | Williams.

Also getting bumped up to creative director at Olson is Brian Hurley, another Martin | Williams alum who joined the former agency in 2007 after spending time as an art director at the latter. According to a statement from Olson CCO Dennis Ryan, “Both Matt and Brian generate terrific thinking with their creative executions and also in innovative media ideas. This makes them a huge asset to our department, despite their inveterate pranking.” The apparently mischievous pair will work on General Mills and University of Minnesota among other accounts.

While we’re on the topic of the Twin Cities, Carmichael Lynch has brought on Michael Rogers (pictured) as ACD on the Subaru business. Rogers, like the aforementioned Olson creatives, also counts a Martin | Williams stint on his resume. The creative also spent a few years at Fallon, where he helped create campaigns for Holiday Inn and United Airlines.
