McKinney Promotes Will Chambliss, Owen Tingle to Creative Director

will_chamblissowen_tingle (1)McKinney has announced the promotion of associate creative directors Will Chambliss and Owen Tingle to creative director.

Chambliss joined McKinney from Arnold Worldwide in 2010. While with Arnold he worked on Timberland, Volvo and Fidelity, produced a Super Bowl spot for ESPN, and became a creative director on Carnival Cruises. Before arriving at Arnold, he was a copywriter at Fitzgerald+CO in Atlanta, where he worked on such brands as Coke, Durex, Quikrete and Aruba.

Tingle joined McKinney in 2005 after “running a family-owned-and-operated business with his father in logistic relocation engineering (aka moving).” In 2006, he directed his first commercial, “The Play” for Sony, which was recognized as one of Advertising Age’s Best Spots of 2006. His work has been recognized by One Show, Webby, Art Directors Club, MIXX, Effie, and Cannes. In the past 18 months, he has been working on campaigns for Nationwide Insurance and Big Boss Brewing, including the beer-dispensing arcade game, The Last Barfighter.

“Will and Owen have been the creative backbone for us on Nationwide,” said group creative director Liz Paradise. “They’re totally ambidextrous in that they not only do a lot of the work, but they deftly manage and mentor other creatives on the account. These promotions really just reflect the important roles they had already been playing.”
