On the strategy side, Christine Cotter joined the Social Deviant team in May as a Business and Account Lead. She was previously at DDB Chicago as a VP/Account Director. With degrees from American University and Georgetown University, Cotter began her career at VivaKi before moving to Ketchum and then DDB

With our annual revenues projected to nearly double in 2018, we’re delighted to be adding quality members to our already amazing team,” said agency founder and CEO Marc Landsberg. “We’re building a well-rounded group of talent from both the agency and brand side as we focus on helping our clients do more with less.”

Currently, Social Deviant is recruiting to fill three additional positions. It plans to host a Portfolio Night at its Chicago headquarters on October 24 to identify and help guide promising talent in the Chicago marketplace.
