For the past 24+ years, Tina Chadwick has been honing her advertising creative skills to forge a reputation for fresh thinking of strategically sound and effective solves. Having been on both and account manager and a creative, she understands the business problems that marketing must address but does not let that hamper creative development. She pulls from her varied experience as an account manager, executive producer, writer, creative director and digital manager to always deliver relevantly creative ideas.

Her path started her as a regional account manager with J. Walter Thompson on the Marine Corps account. She then moved to executive producer at New York-based post-production house and helped them open an Atlanta satellite office. Next was the step to the creative side after attending the Portfolio Center—while working as a thinker/writer for the big idea house, BrightHouse. She developed ideas for companies such as Georgia Pacific, Coca-Cola, Sprite, Diet Coke, Metropolitan Museum, and MetLife. After this stint, she moved to WestWayne writing for Bell South Mobility (now AT&T), Florida’s Natural and Russell Athletic. Lured by the allure of digital, she was wooed by Exile on Seventh to become creative director of the San Francisco–based hot shop. Not giving up easily, WestWayne hired her back to work on SunTrust bank, Florida’s Natural and Russell Athletic. Little creative shop MATCH hired Chadwick away to run the creative department, handling comprehensive marketing development for Shoney’s restaurant, Nature’s Own bread, Ted’s Montana Grill Pike Nurseries, Dynamite plant food, Habersham furniture, and Skirt! magazine.

Chadwick has an extensive toolbox of skills from her rich career path. She has shot commercials in Vancouver, Rio, Cape Town as well as various US cities. Her writing has been published online, appeared in a book of short stories and been featured on NPR. She is a seasoned professional and a fully-functioning, no-ego creative—which is rare.

Chadwick graduated Magna Cum Laude from Florida State University with a Communications degree with a minor in English literature. She is an avid sports person playing Ultimate Frisbee and tennis as well as enjoying running, yoga and any other sport, including chasing her toddler daughter, Elizabeth
