  • Keith Jose

    Keith Jose

    SVP, Director of Business Development

    Keith has spent nearly his entire (advertising) career working on new business. In 1999, Keith made a wager with one of the cofounders of GSD&M that landed him his first job in advertising. He was recruited to work on the new business team soon after and never looked back. After his first eight years with GSD&M, Keith moved to Atlanta to join J. Walter Thompson, but we kept his email address active in case he ever wanted to come home. Five years later he took us up on the offer. He views new business not limited to new client opportunities, but also a chance to create new and innovative ways of doing business that keep the teams connected and inspired. Keith has been a contributing team member through many notable account wins in his career including: BMW, Hilton, Norwegian Cruise Line, AARP, Kinko’s, Charles Schwab, Dodge and Chipotle, among others. Keith holds a BA in Directing from Texas Tech University. When he isn’t fighting for the future at GSD&M, he is enjoying family time with his wife and two daughters.
