John Vitro Speaks from the Heart About Departing Account Exec

We were told that the memo after the jump was sent from John Vitro, co-founder of what was then San Diego-based VitroRobertson over 20 years ago, but which has now evolved into an MDC-owned, bi-coastal entity. The message regards one Danielle Chalin, an account supervisor on Asics U.S. and Taylor Guitars who appears to be leaving the agency after eight years-plus of service.

Vitro Continues ‘Shedding’ Approach for Asics

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. At least that’s what we gather is Vitro’s thinking behind its latest campaign for Asics, which is pretty much identical in style to the “Sound Mind, Sound Body” spot the San Diego-based agency created for the shoe brand almost a year ago. Well, at least the title’s different in this campaign, which is dubbed “Sport Releases More Than Just Sweat.” Whatever the similarities, it appears that the MDC-owned shop’s efforts are paying off for Asics, which claims to be the number two running shoe brand in the U.S. behind Nike.
