Independent full-service advertising agency, Chemistry announced the promotion of Jason Dille to chief media officer. Jason most recently held the title of executive vice president and, in recent years, has spearheaded the growth of the agency’s media billings from $20MM to over $100MM.

Jason’s 20 years of expertise include strategic planning, buying, implementation, and analytics in digital and traditional media. He has led his team at Chemistry in developing media plans and strategies that deliver key business goals such as brand awareness, email acquisition, e-commerce revenue, offline/in-store revenue, and lead generation for a variety of clients, including Five Guys, Rite Aid, PetSafe, Payless ShoeSource, Pennsylvania Lottery, UPMC Health Plan, Frontdoor, Krystal, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and the AMB Family of businesses (Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United).

“I’m so proud of all that we have achieved as a team and an agency, and I’m grateful to now step into the role of chief media officer,” said Jason. “It’s an amazing time at Chemistry and in the industry, and I’m looking forward to continuing to work with our diverse clients to push the boundaries of what is possible in the media field and brand development overall.”
