O’Keefe Reinhard & Paul Chicago, the boutique ad shop now entering its second year, said today it is bringing aboard Natasha Kesaji as director of account services. Separately, Addie Palin is joining the agency as an account director.

Kesaji previously worked for 12 years at the Jacobs Agency Chicago, where she rose through the ranks to become vice president of client services. At Jacobs, Kesaji worked on accounts such as Amtrak, Whole Foods, Microsoft and other pieces of business.

OKRP principal and co-founder Tom O’Keefe said of Kesaji: “Natasha epitomizes the independent spirit and nimble approach to client services that has helped make us successful in just one year.”

Palin previously worked at HY Connect Chicago, where she was an account supervisor working on business-to-business and business-to-consumer accounts. OKRP President Nick Paul said of both new hires: “Natasha and Addie are important additions for us now, making client service a major priority as we continue to grow our account roster.”

OKRP recently launched new ad campaigns for clients Big Lots! and Turtle Wax.
