CP+B Boulder has hired creative director Mark St. Amant, marking his return to the agency.
St. Amant’s 25-year career started at Arnold in Boston, where he partnered with Ralph Watson, who’s the current CP+B Boulder chief creative officer, and worked on accounts including ESPN, McDonald’s and Titleist-Footjoy. Then after a stint at JWT/Atlanta and living abroad in Florence, St. Amant moved to Boulder in 2009 to join CP+B where as a global creative director on the Microsoft business, he was heavily involved in the success of the Window’s 7 “I’m a PC” campaign. In 2012, he left CP+B to co-found Boulder-based agency Grenadier, where he spent four years as both a partner and co-chief creative officer helping the agency grow to 20 people and win clients like SunnyD, Coinstar, Woody Creek Distillers and Winter Park Ski Resort.
St. Amant’s work has been recognized at Cannes, The Clios, The One Show, Kelly Awards, Communication Arts and the ADDYs. He is also an accomplished author and sports expert. St. Amant has written two top-selling books--“Committed: Confessions of a Fantasy Football Junkie” and “Just Kick It: Tales of an Underdog, Over-Age, Out-of-Place, Semi-Pro Football Player”--contributed frequently to the Sunday New York Times, NewYorkTimes.com’s “Fifth Down” NFL blog and NBC Sports, and appeared on such outlets as NPR, ESPN, FOX and Sirius XM.
