- SAN FRANCISCO
Camp + King, a creative agency with offices in San Francisco and Chicago, has promoted executive producer Garrett DeLorm to director of production, effective January 1, 2022. DeLorm will work closely with executive creative directors Rikesh Lal and Jesse Dillow as he oversees the production department, the team of producers, and the Content Lab, which is Camp + King’s in-house content creation arm.
For nearly two decades, DeLorm has solved creative problems across a myriad of production disciplines, from video games to a 24/7 live channel--even throwing a living room out of an airplane in a notable commercial for gaming device Nvidia. With a career spanning the top agencies in the Bay Area, he has worked with brands including Apple, Nike/Jordan, Audi, MINI, Columbia Sportswear, Activision, 2K Games and Levi’s.
DeLorm has produced much of Camp + King’s standout work. He helped to relaunch the Papa John’s brand with Shaquille O’Neal including recent work that let fans scan a pizza box and dance alongside a cartoon version of Shaq in augmented reality and on social media. DeLorm also assisted on the development of an industry-first custom video platform for RE/MAX agents around the globe and worked to revive the Energizer Bunny’s presence in popular culture.
Garrett was recruited to join Camp + King and mentored throughout his tenure by Stacy McClain, partner and director of content production, who will be leaving Camp + King at the end of the year.
DeLorm said he was honored to be named Camp + King’s director of production, noting, “Stacy is a trailblazer, who has carved a deep path over the course of her career. I was fortunate to benefit from her mentorship and I feel well-prepared to take on this next challenge.”
McClain remarked, “Anyone who knows me knows how much I love this agency. That’s why I’m thrilled to be passing the baton to Garrett. He’s been more than simply an integral part of my team, he’s also been a leader. It was important for me to leave the team in the right hands, and with a fire in his gut and a passion for production, Garrett has exactly what Camp+King needs to thrive in the coming years.”
Roger Camp, founder and chief creative officer of Camp + King, said, “I’ve been blessed to have worked with some of the absolute best heads of production throughout my career including here at Camp + King and I can confidently say that Garrett shares many of the same qualities. He’s an unflappable, passionate, tireless problem solver with a strong point of view on how we further evolve not only the production department, but the agency.”
Jamie King, founder and CEO of Camp + King, added, “Stacy built a great production department and team at Camp + King. Perhaps her best contribution to the agency was mentoring Garrett and passing him the baton to take the department to the next level. We are forever indebted to Stacy for her contributions and we’re excited to see Garrett do more great things.”
