After spending the past 18 years with national agencies and global brands leading various digital advertising teams, projects, and programs, Jerry Quinn Jr. is back with QUINN.
Jerry started at Quinn Lipe advertising in 1994, but by the the summer of ’98 he had moved on to sunny California to work for one of the first digital advertising agencies; USWeb. When USWeb merged with renowned agency CKS, Jerry’s traditional media experience working with results-focused local advertisers gave him a huge advantage leading the digital marketing efforts for Apple, US Airways, CNNSI, Audi, and other global brands. Jerry ultimately left USWeb/CKS to become the Media Director at another digital agency, i-traffic, which was part of AGENCY.COM. While at i-traffic/Agency.com, Jerry led a 28 person media team and was responsible for pitching and winning over twenty million dollars of new business, to include marquee accounts such as the Mandalay Bay Resorts Group and HSN.com.
The Great Northwest was never far from Jerry’s heart, so forsaking BART and the crazy California lifestyle, Jerry was recruited by Microsoft and moved to Seattle. At Microsoft Jerry led the deployment of a global direct response display advertising program, where he was responsible for educating and designing the program for sales teams and clients in multiple countries, including France, Australia, Japan, China and more. Recently, Jerry was a marketing manager at CDK Global; an advertising technology company that powers over 7,000 websites for GM, BMW, Hyundai, KIA, Mini and other local dealerships. While at CDK, Jerry realized he was back where he started again – working with local retailers (car dealers) helping them to understand how to leverage their website, SEO, paid search, retargeting, and their own brand to gain more customers.
This was the final straw for Jerry. Long an advocate for the local advertiser, Jerry decided that the recent and revolutionary advances in digital media were opening up unprecedented opportunities for local advertisers. Jerry’s passion for helping local businesses succeed is realized at the new QUINN, where he leads the Media and Strategy functions for QUINN and is thrilled to be able to bring new insights and solutions to advertisers across the Northwest.
