For the second consecutive year, the Medical Advertising Hall of Fame (MAHF) has inducted a key staff member from Chicago agency closerlook, inc.

Associate creative director Dan Morrill has been recognized as a “Future Famer” for his contributions to the medical advertising community at the MAHF Awards Dinner.

The event was held at The Pierre, New York, a Taj Hotel.

The MAHF award is one of the highest distinctions given to individuals in the industry. Founded 20 years ago, the organization recognizes retired executives who have shaped the medical advertising industry through their creative accomplishments. Individuals recognized as “Future Famers” are those whom the MAHF believes are destined to someday leave their mark on medical advertising.

“Future Famers” are young executives who have been in medical advertising for less than five years and are also involved in various community service programs.

Morrill isn’t the first “Future Famer” from closerlook to be inducted. Last year, account director Chelsea Patton received the “Future Famer” distinction.

“To have our team members be acknowledged is an honor,” said CEO David Ormesher. “We strive to create a culture where great talent can be nurtured. We’re pleased that Dan Morrill is being recognized because he truly has made a significant impact on our clients’ programs.”

According to Ormesher, Morrill has a unique ability as a writer to bring brands to life. His approach to storytelling creates content that boosts engagement. Prior to joining closerlook, Morrill worked on content development in the B2B space, writing about technology advances, e-commerce, travel and sports. His diverse experience helps add depth to his storytelling abilities. Morrill has been with closerlook for three years.
