BICsters rising...

Good news! Three BICsters from our inaugural class, Amber Jackson, Vera Golikova Keiter, and Cassondra Bazelow, have upgraded their profiles in the last few weeks.

GREY has promoted Amber Jackson (BIC '15) to Senior Account Executive. Starting as an AE not long after her first semester at BIC, Amber has risen quickly at GREY. Her technical knowledge of the digital and social space has been invaluable and a huge factor in the success of multiple projects, including the launch and management of Brand.com. When GREY upped the ante for Red Carpet in 2013, Amber's support was key to the program's success. Moving forward, Amber will be playing a critical role in bringing initiatives to market. "Gandolf" and Pantene Beautiful Lengths will soon be benefiting from her executional excellence.

Founded as a one-man, one-room retail shop in NYC's garment district, GREY now comprises more than 1,000 people between the New York City flagship and its 96-country network.

Vera Golikova Keiter (BIC '15) has just been hired as a Junior Copywriter in the Social Studio at BBDO New York. Coming off a highly successful internship at LoyalKaspar, Vera was networked to BBDO by BIC Professor Andy Tider. She then wowed BBDO Creatives with her quirky sensibility and versatility.

In a truly exciting turn of events, Vera will be partnered with Cassondra Bazelow (BIC '16). After parlaying a highly successful internship at Tribal DDB two summers ago into a full-time position, Cassondra was able to negotiate a Senior Art Director position at BBDO.

BBDO Worldwide is 15,000 people in 289 agencies across 81 countries, all focused on: The Work. The Work. The Work. Among its recognitions are: Most Effective Network in the World, Global Effie Effectiveness Index 2011, 2014, 2015,  Network of the Year, Cannes Festival, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 & 2011, and Global Network of the Year, Adweek Magazine, 2011, 2014.

CONGRATS to our amazing BICsters!!
