Our very own Graphic Designer Jillian Pecoraro was recently selected as one of nine new members of the Advertising Club of Buffalo’s Board of Directors. Jillian’s nod continues a burgeoning tradition of Quinlan representatives on the Ad Club board and marks an exciting personal step towards engaging more deeply with the advertising world in Buffalo.

“I am very excited and love that I will be representing Quinlan amongst the other advertising agencies of Buffalo,” Jillian states. “It’s going to be a great opportunity to work with other creatives in the industry!”

Jillian’s duties as board member include planning, promoting and attending the nearly 20 Ad Club events held each year, ranging from monthly AdLab sessions to special Ad Week events, student workshops and – of course – the ADDYs, Buffalo’s annual advertising showcase. In addition, she’ll be expected to participate in monthly board meetings and subcommittee meetings.

What exactly does it take to become a member with the Advertising Club of Buffalo Board of Directors? Knowledge of the advertising industry, a creative passion and being a Buffalo fanatic help!


Quinlan’s Creative Director Frank Conjerti served as a board member for the past two years and offers Jillian some helpful advice.

“Being a board member is extremely rewarding – you meet great people, learn a lot about the local and national advertising industries and make connections that really help you grow,” Frank said. “As long as you’re willing to get involved, put yourself out there and work hard to improve the club, the experience will be outstanding — for you, your fellow board members and the entire club.”

Frank helped create the Ad Club of Buffalo’s new website, managed email campaigns, and coordinated the 2014 Bowling Tournament (which Quinlan sponsored).

Jillian is currently a graphic designer at Quinlan and worked previously as a freelance graphic designer for Artistree and graphic designer for a stationary company, Paper and Cup.

Congratulations, Jillian! We are excited to see what’s in store this year.
