LAS VEGAS – B&P Advertising, Media & Public Relations continues adding to its team, hiring two longtime advertising industry professionals to open 2022.
David Heintzelman is an experienced copywriter with nearly two decades of experience in gaming and other industries. Most recently employed with Las Vegas-based MyDailyChoice, where he created both consumer-facing and business-to-business content for a wide range of wellness brands and financial and experience-driven products, Heintzelman previously worked as a creative director for another Las Vegas-based agency, and as a supervising copywriter for MGM Resorts International.
In 2017, while with MGM Resorts, his viral social campaign, “You’re Going to Have a Story to Tell,” won a Shorty Award, a nationally recognized award for viral marketing campaigns. His work also garnered multiple American Advertising Awards (ADDYs) from 2014 to 2019.
B&P’s other new team member is familiar to many at the agency and in the industry. Norm Craft has been a Las Vegas ad agency executive for more than 30 years. Most recently with OH Partners Advertising, Craft was responsible for all day-to-day operations, human resources management, coordinating new business leads and more. Prior to his time with OH, he was a senior vice president at SK+G Advertising, supervising several teams, spearheading contract development and negotiation efforts, and forging long-term relationships with several high-profile clients. Among the many powerhouse companies he has represented over the years are Boyd Gaming, Bank of Nevada, Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group and others.
“At B&P, we’re dedicated to delivering the best advertising, media and public relations work for our clients,” said B&P President Chuck Johnston. “We need the best possible people to accomplish that. David and Norm bring years of invaluable agency experience, and our clients will be the ultimate beneficiaries of their expertise.”
As 2021 came to a close, B&P also hired four new professionals to its advertising and public relations divisions, and promoted two account executives. Johnston said the additions of Heintzelman and Craft continues this momentum into 2022.
