Director of Client Strategy

Jay Kerness

Just before setting a strategy so different yet so perfect that a campaign nearly builds itself, Jay often apologizes for wandering into “creative territory.” He’s been doing exactly that more than 25 years, 12 of them working with Grafik, launching multi-channel marketing campaigns for more than 50 brands, including General Motors, Keebler, U.S. Census Bureau, University of Miami, Verizon and Software AG. Jay is a published author and former Off-Broadway composer, has a B.A. in Fine Arts & Psychology from Brandeis University and an M.B.A. from Harvard.
