NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2013) - CKSK, the global full-service digital agency, today announced the expansion of its NYC leadership team with the appointment of Tim McKee as Executive Creative Director/Partner.

In this newly-created role, McKee will lead creative technological development for the firm's growing client list that includes Heineken USA and Pernod Ricard. In addition, McKee will be involved in new business and will work closely with CKSK's European team to drive creative and technological innovation for all of CKSK's clients such as Sol Beer, PepsiCo and Sony PlayStation.

McKee's appointment comes as CKSK increases its presence in the US market following its launch earlier this year. CKSK CEO and Co-founder Cillian Kieran stated, "Tim's creative background and passion for all things digital aligns precisely with CKSK's mission to put the consumer first by developing truly innovative and creative technological platforms that drive ongoing engagement."

He also ran his own consultancy and is an Associate Professor at Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Arts.

Commenting on his new position, McKee stated, "The opportunity to grow CKSK's creative department while building cool stuff for our clients was too good to pass on. Regardless of the medium, all brands have stories that need to be told. I dream of improving the way we interact with those stories."

Over the course of his career, McKee has picked up more than 20 industry accolades, including two W3 (2012) Gold Awards for his work on The Big Ad Gig in the Self Promotion and Marketing categories; two Pixel Awards (2011) for his work on the Autograph Collection; and a Daytime Emmy (2010) for his work on The Electric Company.
