The Mx Group is pleased to announce that Emily Williams Kleist has been named vice president and executive creative director of the agency.

“Emily has led our creative team, delivering impactful work and growing our talent significantly, over the last few years,” said Agency President Tony Riley. “We are excited to recognize what Emily is doing for us now, such as creating partnership opportunities with organizations that shape the talent of the future, like Chicago Portfolio School, and leading internal initiatives that raise the caliber of our collaboration and ultimately our work. We’re also very excited about where she plans to take the creative department in the future.”
In her new role, Emily will focus on deepening relationships with clients; establishing new areas of creative expertise and thought leadership; engaging in the B2B and broader communities in new ways; and continuing to find, retain and cultivate staff.
