Subject Matter, the Creative Advocacy firm based in Washington, D.C., announced the addition of new senior talent, with Sarah Kennedy Hillmann rejoining the firm as Creative Director.
“We could not be more excited to welcome Sarah back to the Subject Matter team,” said founding partner Paul Frick. “We are sure she will be a valuable asset to the firm and her clients. With a keen understanding of client needs, Sarah is sure to deliver thoughtful, creative and compelling work, and we look forward to her leading our teams to produce the same high-caliber work as Creative Director.”
Hillman rejoins the Subject Matter team after a yearlong stint with global public relations firm Weber Shandwick, where she held the title of Senior Copywriter. In this position, she served as creative lead for two of the firm’s clients, working in both the government and consumer brand spaces, while also supporting a handful of other accounts, concepting, writing and producing traditional and interactive work.
Prior to Weber Shandwick, Hillmann was a Senior Copywriter at Subject Matter, where she helped launch integrated campaigns for several of the firm’s top clients, ranging from large consumer brands to national trade associations and local non-profit organizations.
In her decade of experience in the advertising and public relations sectors, Hillmann’s work has been recognized by Adweek, the SABRE Awards and the American Advertising Federation.
“I know the value Sarah will add to any project and I’m thrilled to partner with her in her new role as Creative Director,” said Kevin Richards, Chief Creative Officer.
