NEW DIRECTOR OF CREATIVE STRATEGY IS A FAMILIAR FACE – Involve is thrilled to announce a new “old” addition – Darren Kautz has joined the team as Director of Creative Strategy, helping craft brand strategy and communications that connect with audiences in a thoughtful and meaningful way.
“Darren was an important part of our creative team early in the history of Involve,” said Craig Lerner, president, Involve. “He brings strong conceptual thinking, copywriting, and creativity to the table, and he was an integral part of developing our company culture. We are so glad to have him back and look forward to his creative and cultural leadership.”
Darren is based in Tampa, FL, which additionally gives Involve a presence in this important market. We work with clients in the area, and around Florida. Having Darren nearby allows us to provide another level of personal service and access to agency leadership.
