Meet Your New ADC President

A changing of the guard has taken place at the Art Directors Club as happycorp co-founder/current JaegerSloan proprietor Doug Jaeger has ended his requisite three-year term as president and is now handing off the baton to Benjamin Palmer, co-founder/CEO of The Barbarian Group and a member of the ADC’s board (since 2008) who’s sung its praises before.

With the trend seeming to be that those bred in digital are now taking over as producers across the board at agencies, an appointment like Palmer’s doesn’t seem so leftfield.But anyhow, the Barbarian, who now becomes the 58th president of the ADC, says of his predecessor and the Club’s future, “Doug laid the groundwork for reinvigorating ADC as a cultural hub with strong year-round programming. I want the club to continue in that direction, with programming that appeals on both local and global levels and cool events in our great gallery space that connect people and provide real value to members.”
