Wednesday Morning Stir

-As the Supreme Court has apparently made its decision on the Defense of Marriage provision, figured it’s rather timely to post an image from one of the initiatives (image above from the L.A. Pride Parade)¬† launched during National Pride Month by Team One, whose president Paul Mareski is openly gay with two children. Update: The SC has struck down DOMA.

Yep, These Guys Have Been Upped to Team One’s Digital Leadership Team

Yeah, we’d probably gawk at that mug in the same exact fashion, too. Anyhow, Saatchi & Saatchi’s Team One division has bumped a couple of its staffers, namely the blokes above, Alastair Green and Jeremiah Knight (pictured l-r). The former, who joined Team One as digital ECDin summer 2010 after spending some time at McCann SF in the same role, will now take a chair as part of the agency’s executive leadership team, which also includes president Paul Mareski, CCO Chris Graves, CSO Mark Miller, executive director Julie Michael and executive director, Paul Silverman.

As for Mr. Knight on the right, the current Team One group account director, digital has been promoted to the post of managing director, digital across the agency’s accounts including, yes, Lexus, as well as the Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott. Prior to joining Team One towards the end of 2009, Knight spent well over six years at TBWA\Chiat\Day, initially working on the account/management side at the agency’s TEQUILA\ unit before moving up to the post of director of digital strategy at TBWA\Chiat\Day proper in 2007.

Prior to their new roles, the lads recently conspired on the nifty Cineprint Lexus ad promoting the 2013 ES.
