Demonstrate, a boutique marketing and communications agency, announced that Sean DallasKidd has joined its growing, award-winning team as chief creative officer and partner of Demonstrate.
DallasKidd will be based out of the agency’s San Francisco headquarters and will lead creative strategy, content and production. DallasKidd joins Demonstrate from J. Walter Thompson, where he most recently led creative for the San Francisco office and worked with clients including Adobe, Air China, Gruppo Campari, HSBC, UN Women and Treasury Wine Estates. Prior to joining J. Walter Thompson in 2016, DallasKidd was SVP & Partner at FleishmanHillard, where he focused on developing their content and creative capabilities.
“I’m very excited about this partnership and next step. I believe that the brands that will win understand that customers will ‘buy’ a good product but more importantly, if a brand can give a customer a reason to buy into the brands purpose, that’s how you achieve long-term success and brand advocacy. And as such, the way we communicate needs to evolve. We need to be able to create stories that attract an audience, not interrupt. To push for brand actions that build trust and community—because they are built on brand beliefs. Being a storyteller or creator is more important than ever before, and I’m excited to be a part of that new wave,” said DallasKidd.
His subject matter expertise spans across B2C, B2B and internal communications in a variety of industries ranging from food, beverage, health, wellness, and lifestyle, to consumer tech and transportation. DallasKidd has worked extensively with prominent consumer brands including 19 Crimes, Aperol, Best Buy, Discovery, EA, Visa and is also adept at helping fledgling startup businesses and non-profits establish their footing and capturing share of voice in the marketplace.
“Sean’s business savvy and breadth of experience in marketing and communications across many verticals in both large and small agency environments, and in-house make him the perfect partner for our fast-growing agency. His leadership abilities combined with his out-of-the-box creative thinking and his approach to innovative solutions to helping clients achieve their business objectives is unmatched. We’re elated that Sean is joining us at Demonstrate,” said Joey Hodges, founder and CEO of Demonstrate.
