Top Drawer’s Expansion on the West Coast

August 20, 2015 by  Kelly Drennan

We are thrilled to announce Top Drawer’s expansion on the West Coast with the hiring of advertising and media veteran Shelly Wilson. As Vice-President of Top Drawer Creative West Corp., Shelly brings years of media and digital experience to the executive team and has big plans to significantly grow our west coast client base.

Well versed in all media solutions – from traditional to innovative – Shelly has worked with nearly every agency and retailer in Canada at one point or another, which is how she discovered Top Drawer and met our CEO and president, Howard Chang.

Shelly was really drawn to our agency’s focus on the AHAA™ (Active, Healthy, Affluent and Aware) lifestyle space: “Leaving a great position at Metroland and moving to Vancouver three years ago was all about lifestyle choice,” she says. “I have had great success so far, but I was looking for an agency that better fit my values and passions, including the outdoors and social responsibility.”

Over the next 12 months, Shelly will introduce Top Drawer and its focus on the AHAA™ consumer to more west coast brands in both the U.S. and Canada. “With our agency’s unique consumer focus, as well as our under-one-roof collaborative model, we fit western brands especially well,” says Howard Chang. “Shelly gets this and will be a strong leader in building fame for our agency in areas like California, Oregon, Colorado and B.C.”
