On Friday, October 13, 2017, Grady graduate Shane Altman came to speak to advertising students. Altman discussed the paths he took from UGA to where he is today, the unique culture of advertising agencies, and his day-today responsibilities as a professional.
Altman is currently a Creative Group Head and Art Director at The Richards Group, the largest independent advertising agency in America. He has created memorable campaigns and led creative efforts for a range of clients including Bridgestone Tires, Omni Hotels & Resorts, GoRVing, Luzianne Iced Tea, Chrysler, Wawa, The Home Depot, and Jeep.
After bringing the ad agency experience to life and discussing many real-world experiences, both students and professors had nothing short of great feedback to report. We are very appreciative of Altman’s visit.
