CINCINNATI (July 09, 2019) – Coming on the heels of successful commercials produced for TriHealth, Dremel and Formica, Empower continues to invest in its content studio with more talent to keep up with the growing demand to ideate, direct and produce content. Spanning 3,500 square feet, Empower’s studio is fully equipped with onsite video, photography, lighting, sound space and an editing suite.
Terry Dillon joins Empower as creative director charged with bringing idea-led Creative solutions to clients. Wally German brings his visual talents to the agency as lead photographer and videographer.
Dillon was born and raised in Greater Cincinnati, where he learned the ropes at independent agencies before heading west to L.A. to work for Warner Bros. He became a staff writer for top comedy show Two and a Half Men after assisting on That ‘70s Show and The Big Bang Theory. Other career highlights include working for Bob Dylan’s Theme Time Radio Hour and Comedy Central.
“I saw how much Cincinnati had progressed over the years. It’s a great place to enjoy family while fulfilling creative ambition,” Dillon says. “I was impressed by Empower’s competitive edge: bringing media and message together under one roof.”
Also a Cincinnati native with national clout, German’s artwork was recently featured on the TODAY show. “I’m a MacGyver when it comes to creating things and felt compelled to join Empower after meeting the talented Creative team and being exposed to the agency’s deep media roots,” German said.
“It’s a fun time to be working at Empower,” explains Chief Creative Officer, Tinus Strydom. “We’re producing Creative for some clients, driving Media strategy for all and trailblazing a path for Creative Media solutions for progressive organizations like TriHealth. “With the addition of Dillon and German, Empower’s ability to create on the fly is stronger than ever,” Strydom said.
