SAN RAMON, Calif (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AMF Media Group (AMF), an award-winning full-service marketing agency, welcomes Geoff McGann as executive creative director. McGann’s wealth of experience in campaigns such as Nike’s “Just Do It” makes him an invaluable asset to AMF’s growing client list. McGann joins AMF from McGann and Partners, where he was chief creative officer. Over the past 35 years, he has been a creative force behind powerful campaigns for both non-profit and commercial clients, including prominent brands such as Miller Lite, MTV and Gap. McGann will lead the agency’s creative team, develop brand strategy and manage the design and production of creative assets from the agency’s Los Angeles office.

Prior to joining AMF two years ago, Joe served at top-notch agencies including BBDO, FCB and Doner. Joe will oversee the agency’s creative operations from its headquarters in San Ramon, California.
