MINNEAPOLIS, MN—February 8, 2022—Deb Hagan joins Marketing Architects as the All-Inclusive TV agency’s newest Vice President of Creative. Hagan brings a wealth of marketing knowledge and more than 20 years of creative experience to the team.  

Hagan previously tackled creative direction at several prestigious agencies, including the Martin Agency, and most recently served as Yebo's Chief Creative Officer.
