What do you do with a South African-turned-New Yorker who’s president of advertising’s most prestigious club?
If you’re McKinney, you take him to the Q Shack for barbeque, slaw and hush puppies.
CCO Jonathan Cude and Janet Northen feasted with Kevin Swanepoel on his recent visit to the Triangle. “It was great showing him what we’re up to,” said Cude. “I think we converted him. He cleaned his plate.” Kevin was treated to some McKinney work and a tour of what most visiting New Yorkers say is “unbelievably cool agency space.” Cude also shared news of “The McKinney 10%” that invites employees to spend 10% of their time on innovation. Before leaving, Kevin extended an invitation to the agency to present at The One Club’s Creative Week, May 9–13. We’ll be there.
