Wettstein Out at JWT ATL

We’ve received confirmation that Tim Wettstein, who has been with JWT’s Atlanta office for just a year, is no longer with the agency. During his brief stint at the agency, where he most recently served as senior partner/group creative director, Wettstein served as GCD on efforts including Scana Energy’s “Affairs of the Flame” campaign as well as work for Jiffy Lube, XBOX and Gillette. Prior to JWT, Wettstein spent four years at BBDO New York, where he worked with brands including PETA and Autism Speaks. Here’s one example of his work for the former client here.

Above, you’ll see Wettstein to your left along with JWT ATL CCO Perry Fair and Dana Markee, the last of whom was cut last summer. We’re hearing they were among Fair’s first new hires when he took over as president/CCO at JWT’s Atlanta/Dallas/Houston offices in 2011.

Markee Out at JWT Atlanta

Sources familiar with the matter confirm that JWT Atlanta and senior partner/creative director Dana Markee have parted ways after just four months. Markee made the move from L.A. to the ATL to serve as CD on the U.S. Marines account.

Prior to joining JWT, Markee spent a few months on the freelance circuit, but worked for the majority of her career at TBWA\Chiat\Day, where she spent over nine years and moved up from senior art director to ACD/AD. During her time at Chiat, Markee worked on past and present clients including Visa, Playstation, MARS Petcare, Nissan and Infiniti. We have yet to hear about why Markee’s stay at JWT Atlanta was all too brief, but we’re looking into it.
