AMA Wichita welcomes keynote speaker, Gerry Killeen whose agency helped create the AFLAC duck campaign.
In September of 1997, Gerry and two business partners founded The Kaplan Thaler Group, a start-up advertising agency in the 3rd floor brownstone of Linda Kaplan Thaler. The agency began with 5 people and one account, Clairol Herbal Essences. In 1999, the agency won the AFLAC account by creating the AFLAC duck, a campaign that raised awareness of the brand to over 90%, second only to Coca-Cola. The agency grew to 200 people, and a creative department of 50, creating advertising for Wendy’s, US Bank, Toys ‘R Us and other national accounts.
The Wichita Marketing Awards and Marketer of the Year will also be celebrated. Please join us for this exciting event!
