Conor Duignan Joins barrettSF as Head of Production
barrettSF has hired Conor Duignan as head of production, founder and ECD Jamie Barrett announced today.
Duignan brings the shop nearly a decade of experience in the advertising industry producing campaigns for massive global brands and local companies alike. He will be leading the production charge for the agency’s roster of clients including Rubio’s Coastal Restaurants, 2K Games, Bleacher Report, goSeek, AliveCor, Golf Channel, the Redwood Association, Exchange Bank, and any new business.
“Conor is an amazing producer who has learned under the best producers at one of the best agencies in the world. But that’s only the second reason we hired him. The first reason is he’s an awesome guy who will lead and influence this place in ways that go far beyond department titles. We’re beyond excited to be on the same team as Conor.”
Duignan spent the last nine years at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, where he produced award-winning campaigns for the NBA, Xfinity, the California Milk Processor Board (“got milk?”), and Chevrolet, amongst others.
Career highlights include: shooting with 3-time Academy Award winner Emanuel “Chivo” Lebitzki, traveling the world for Chevrolet’s 100th anniversary campaign and beating Kevin Durant in a game of one-on-one while on set. (It remains unclear whether Durant knew they were actually engaged in a competition.)
