Executive Vice President
Makovsky Integrated Communications
In his 30-year career as an award-winning writer, designer and marketing strategist, Tim Kane has developed a unique perspective on the value of branding. "The market always rewards strength," he says. "And strength is revealed through communications." That has been the consistent strategic thread throughout Tim's work, whether it's positioning a financial retailer for entry into online banking, re-imagining an energy utility's role in a deregulated market, or re-engaging an aging technology brand with its youthful constituency.
Prior to joining Makovsky, Tim served as a top creative executive at McCann Erickson for eight years, J. Walter Thompson, DDB and Ogilvy & Mather, directing integrated communications programs for some of the world's most recognizable brands, including ExxonMobil, Lucent, Capital One, Gillette and Motorola. He has also contributed his time and talents to the public sector, spearheading projects for the U.S. Department of State, the City of New York, the City of Chicago, National Public Radio and several major universities.
