Los Angeles independent creative agency Dailey announce the promotion of Dailey veteran Marcus Wesson to Chief Creative Officer. Wesson was previously Executive Creative Director.

“From the day Marcus arrived at Dailey, he’s brought a new sense of excitement and creative energy to the agency,” says Bill Waldner, Managing Partner at Dailey. “Marcus manages to both create and inspire attention-grabbing work. And as anyone who’s ever worked with him knows, he’s also one of the nicest people in the business. Marcus’s well-deserved promotion to CCO recognizes his contributions and his growing role in Dailey’s leadership.”

Dailey’s most recent CCO was Waldner, who became Managing Partner when Dailey bought itself back from former holding company IPG in 2017.

Wesson previously served as Associate Creative Director for Dailey from 2009 to 2014, and returned as Executive Creative Director in 2017 when the agency was in the buyback process. With over 20 years of experience at top agencies such as TBWA Chiat/Day, DDB and 72andSunny, Wesson has helped craft work for some of the nation’s top brands including Nissan, Activision, Carl’s Jr. and Honda.

Wesson’s work has been honored by the One Show, Clios, D&AD, FWA, the Beldings, Webbys, TBS' Funniest Commercials, and even mentioned in two major motion pictures. Dailey won a 2018 Drum Social Purpose Award for “Best Representation of Diversity and Inclusion in a Campaign” led by Wesson for “What Diversity Gives Us,” a website that allows visitors to find out more about the contributions underrepresented groups have made to society.

“Honestly, I love creating—and as I move into the role of CCO, the stakes are now higher,” Wesson says. “Dailey will continue to push work that brings our clients’ brands into new fruitful frontiers. I’m so fortunate that the owners allow so much room for growth and creativity,” Wesson says.
