Join us for our October Ad Night and a conversation with Cracker Barrel's Creative Director!

 

He went from the top of Chicago’s ad world to creative lead at one of the nation’s favorite restaurant brands, Cracker Barrel. This intimate interview with Mike Porritt exposes 360° of industry truths.

 

Mike’s easily one of Nashville’s more notable, untapped advertising minds. After 18 years spent at the helm of Chicago’s illustrious advertising scene, heading up campaigns for brands like McDonald’s, State Farm, and Anheuser Busch at DDB Chicago and Leo Burnett, Mike changed his pace—drastically. He packed up his life and made the move to Nashville to head up Cracker Barrel’s marketing team, leading this old fashion brand’s evolution into a modern age.

 

This candid conversation bridges the gap between agency and client worlds to uncover important topics and establish open dialogue. What do clients want agencies to know? How can we work better together? What processes need to evolve? Get your questions ready and join us for a full-access, no-story-left-unturned interview.

 

Tickets are $5 for member of AAFN and $15 for non-members and can be purchased online.
