John Spalding has spent 15+ years racking up as many friends in the ad business as accolades, and more than once he's been referred to as the "glue" guy in the agency. As a copywriter he's appeared in One Show and Communication Arts. He's won National Addy's, local and regional Best of Show, been a finalist in the Radio Mercury Awards and taken home a half dozen Effie's to boot.
He's a leader and a collaborator. A mentor and motivator. A trusted advocate for the clients he serves and a go-to the account folks can rely on to supply fresh, creative thinking that nails the strategy and establishes tone of voice. He's worked on brands like AT&T, vitaminwater, Pizza Hut, Intercontinental Hotels Group, CORT, CapitalOne, UPS, ING, Coca-Cola, Ritz-Carlton, and Durex, among others.
John is a lucky man, with a very understanding wife, and an 11-year-old son who never ceases to amaze him. Besides advertising, he brings a passion for his home state of Kentucky's two most popular exports: bourbon and basketball.
John also writes bios for everyone in the agency, and is quite positive that this one strikes the right note between "confident" and "cocky as hell."
