SAN FRANCISCO: Digital communications agency Horn Group hired Tim O'Keeffe as managing director. Returning to the agency where he began his career as an intern 15 years ago, O'Keeffe will lead the Horn Group's San Francisco Office and oversee general management of employees and accounts while also working to grow the agency's roster of clients in the digital media, enterprise software, and consumer technology arenas.
In the managing director role, O'Keeffe replaces Linda Clarke who left the agency on Friday. He will report to Sabrina Horn, the agency's founder, president, and CEO. He is moving from a VP position at Hill and Knowlton. Prior to H&K, O'Keeffe held positions at Fleishman-Hillard and Ruder Finn, and has experience working with a number of big-name brands including Yahoo, Ford, HP, Palm, and Sony.
“Adding that kind of experience and talent to the mix at Horn Group is going to be really good for our growth and our expansion plans,” said Shannon Latta, partner and executive vice president of the agency.
