February marked Clayton Hove’s 25th year working for KK BOLD. Back when Clay was hired, the company was named Kranzler Kingsley Communications and the entire agency had just one email address. Yep, you read that correctly. It doesn’t seem possible that was just 25 years ago. One thing that hasn’t changed in that time is Clay’s passion and aptitude for all things creative in advertising and marketing.
Clay came to us from a Fargo, ND ad agency and had been freelancing in Grand Forks prior to that. He was hired as a copywriter and promoted to creative director just three months after starting. And that title fits him perfectly.
KK BOLD President LaRoy Kingsley, “Clay has been with the agency for 25 of the 32 years of its existence, and I can’t imagine going through that with any other creative director. He’s constantly on top of what is trending in the marketplace and always finds a fresh and novel approach to what marketing challenge our clients are up against.”
When asked about how it feels to be celebrating 25 years at KK, Clay replied, “Wait, what?” We’re just going to assume that means his time at KK has flown by.
