Little Rock-based CJRW announced Wednesday (March 4) that Brian Kratkiewicz has been named senior vice president and director of account services, and Zack Hill has been named vice president and director of digital services.

Kratkiewicz is an advertising agency and industry veteran who has been senior vice president and director of CJRW’s media and digital divisions. Hill was previously the firm’s director of digital services. In addition, CJRW announced that Karen Mullikin, who joined CJRW in 1994, has been named corporate project officer. In her role, Mullikin will focus on strategic initiatives in support of the firm’s business plan.

Ike Peters, a copywriter who joined CJRW in 2013, has joined the digital services division of the agency where he will focus on social media services to clients.

“In recent months, we have seen a significant and sustained growth in our digital services division,” CJRW President Darin Gray said in the statement. “This realignment of our professional resources is in response not only to that growth, but is part of
a long-term growth strategy we have initiated and implemented over the last 12 to 18 months.”

It was announced in January that another firm in the state’s communications industry, Heathcott Associates, would merge with CJRW. That merger became effective March 1. Later this year, CJRW will move its Little Rock operations to Third and Main in the city’s developing “creative corridor.” The agency’s wholly owned subsidiary, Jones Film Video, will also move to Third and Main across the street from CJRW’s new headquarters building.
