Vice President, Client Services
Deskey welcomes Joe Kruse as our new Vice President of Client Services, overseeing our team of client managers and account directors. He brings a background of more than 20 years in design, branding, packaging and business development to this leadership role. Joe believes in leveraging trust to build collaborative relationships and in creating brands that truly connect with consumers. A coach for the Walnut Hills High School women’s lacrosse team in his “spare” time, Joe previously was Director of Client Development for Brandimage in Cincinnati. He holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Cincinnati.
We are delighted to welcome back Debbie Happe as Account Director. Debbie previously worked with Deskey for 10 years, most recently as Senior Client Manager. She returns to the tribe to build and grow relationships with clients both familiar and new in the development and delivery of strategic design. Debbie’s collaborative approach is as genuine as her keen sense of diplomacy and is elevating clients such as Whirlpool, Steak ’n Shake and Cradle Cincinnati. Debbie is a graduate of The Ohio State University.
