Advertising, Business, People

Rob Perillo, former Executive Creative Director at Grey Worldwide, has joined Klunk & Millan Advertising, a leading full-service integrated marketing agency with offices outside of Philadelphia and San Diego.

Klunk & Millan touts a roster of global clients including Air Products, Olympus, STANLEY Black & Decker, Crayola Experience, and more. Rob will lead the agency’s creative team, integrating digital, social, and web design, to champion innovative, strategically led concepts and creative approaches that transcend media for an omnichannel customer experience.

We’ve watched the macro-trend of agencies reconsolidating from specialized and siloed to fully integrated, and our position has never wavered (…) Clients are looking for, and benefitting from, the next-generation operating model—multi-disciplined agencies. With Rob’s expertise in leading cross-functional teams, we are steadfast in our commitment to inter- and cross-agency collaboration in order to offer our clients efficiencies of budget and accountability of performance

Jim Klunk,

President, Klunk & Millan

Prior to joining Klunk & Millan, Rob’s track record of award-winning campaigns at Grey included one of the greatest creative turnarounds in the history of the industry, the Febreze “Breathe Happy – Blindfold” campaign. “Breathe Happy” was the brand’s first global initiative, which Rob created and led, achieving a Silver and Bronze Lion at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. The campaign was also awarded a Bronze and Black Lion for Creative Effectiveness and five Effie Awards.

His most recent creative accomplishments include four Lions at the 2016 Cannes Festival for “Gun Crazy,” and seven Lions in 2015, including Grey’s first-ever Grand Prix for Volvo’s “Greatest Interception.” Rob has also made his mark on the D&AD and One Show with multiple awards.

“Rob’s reputation precedes him. His leadership is central to providing a unified, best-in-class team that works across disciplines and agencies,” said Klunk.

When I first met with Klunk & Millan, I was immediately impressed with both the sense of loyalty I felt and the long tenures of the majority of the employees—things that are sometimes lacking in our industry (…) This sense of pride and commitment, combined with deep talent and progressive thinking, really drew me toward this opportunity. And there is no shortage of opportunity here—I see a real chance to not only expand upon the work that’s already been done here, but to also explore new ways to think about our clients. I see great things ahead.

Rob’s depth of creative leadership also includes DMB&B, Darcy, Saatchi & Saatchi, and BBDO.
