As part of the reorganization—
"This is the beginning of an exciting new chapter for us," said Jerry Kaulius, founder and chief creative officer of JK Design. "In just the past five years, we've nearly doubled our staff and built relationships with many important new clients. We knew there was a critical need to position ourselves to manage that growth and continue to provide the high level of quality and creativity our clients expect—and that we've always delivered.
“The changes have been embraced by our entire team, sparking a wave of energy and enthusiasm to take on the challenges that lie ahead.”
Joining Kaulius at the helm are newly appointed COO/CTO Brett Fielo, previously VP of technology/strategy, and COO/CSO Martha Marchesi, previously VP of creative/marketing services. Other staff were also promoted to key management positions.
“Overall, the goal is to become more proactive and less reactive,” said Marchesi. “With more efficient structures and processes in place, our new model should scale nicely for continued growth.”
Fielo added, “The new structure is designed to promote opportunity, giving people the ability to work on new projects and acquire new skills. It also allows Jerry to do more of what he does best: guiding our teams to produce the innovative, creative products we're known for.”
A talented artist with an entrepreneurial spirit, Kaulius started JK Design with two full-time employees in 1985, increasing the staff roster to 35 in 2008 and to 62 in 2013. The company evolved from a graphic design shop to a full-service advertising agency with a wide range of capabilities including design, marketing, advertising, branding, Web and app development, video, and more.
As a kickoff to the reorganization, JK Design recently launched a redesigned website (www.jkdesign.com)
JK Design is headquartered in the historic Staats House in Hillsborough, NJ. The agency's NYC office is located in the Chelsea neighborhood of midtown Manhattan.
