Hampel, Stefanides Join Cramer-Krasselt, Launch N.Y. Office

Published on .

Veteran creative directors Dean Stefanides and Larry Hampel will spearhead the launch of a New York office of independent advertising agency Cramer-Krasselt, the Chicago-based shop announced today. The full-service office, which will be known as Cramer-Krasselt/Hampel Stefanides, will initially share space with CKPR, Cramer-Krasselt's public relations subsidiary, before moving into space of its own.

Hampel and Stefanides, who will serve as co-ECDs, have been a creative team since working together at Scali, McCabe, Sloves in the 1980s. In 1993, they forged out on their own to found Hampel/Stefanides. The agency was acquired by Toronto's Envoy Communications Group in 1998 and shuttered early last year. Most recently, the pair joined former Scali, McCabe, Sloves colleague William Tucker's agency, The Tucker Partnership, which was briefly renamed Tucker, Hampel, Stefanides & Partners.
