ChappellRoberts Attracts Out-of-Market Advertising Experts to Tampa Bay
Ad Agency Expands Team to Service New Business and Digital Growth
TAMPA, Fla. (May 1, 2014) — ChappellRoberts, one of Tampa Bay’s largest advertising agencies, recently acquired top talent from other markets. The two hires are another indicator of what the agency and Tampa have to offer creative professionals. In order to support new and growing client portfolios, the agency added two key positions, including a senior art director, Brent Koepke, and a web developer, Adam Alvis.
“In both instances, these employees were looking for unique professional opportunities first. Second, a place where they can relocate their young families and deliver on a quality of life factor,” said Colleen Chappell, president and CEO of ChappellRoberts. “We’ve been running a creative business for more than 35 years, and I’m so glad others are seeing the opportunities and benefits available in the Tampa Bay market.”
Brent Koepke, a nearly 20-year advertising veteran from Central Florida, joins ChappellRoberts as a senior art director. Koepke is responsible for leading agency projects from conceptual to executional stages, as well as supervising the creative department. Koepke has extensive experience in the culinary, destination and entertainment industries, working with clients such as Universal Studios, Walt Disney Company and Seminole Hard Rock.
The agency’s web developer, Adam Alvis, is now on board helping bring brands to life in the digital space. Alvis was previously located in Indiana and relocated to Florida to join ChappellRoberts. Alvis’ responsibilities include front- and back-end website development and maintenance across multiple platforms. Additionally, he will assist in creating and executing SEO strategies as well as user experience and content management solutions.
