On pace for a record number of clients in 2017, automotive advertising giant JKR Advertising & Marketing announced the hiring of Jeff Dilley to the newly created position of Chief Operations Officer. The appointment was made by JKR Managing Partner Jeff Johnson and is effective immediately.
“The opportunity to join a thriving, growing company like JKR in the role of COO doesn’t come along very often,” Dilley said. “I am grateful to the owners of the agency and look forward to being a trusted resource for the employees of all departments at JKR.”
Dilley’s responsibilities will include being in charge of the day-to-day operations of JKR and its subsidiary companies.
For the past three months, Dilley was a consultant at JKR through the RVR Consulting Group. He also spent 15 years in an executive role at The Golf Channel, where he was part of the initial team that helped launch the network in the mid-1990s.
“The need for a Chief Operations Officer became increasingly apparent over the past few years as our organization has continued to expand,” Johnson said. “The appointment of Jeff Dilley to this position will help ensure we have the proper managerial framework in place both today and well into the future. We’ve been very pleased with the job he has done in his short time with us and look forward to the positive contribution he will make in his permanent role.”
