Whitehouse Post New York Editor Sam Puglise-Kipley Heads to Chicago Office
After spending nearly a decade honing his craft and becoming one of Whitehouse Post New York’s sought-after editors, Sam Puglise-Kipley is taking his talents back to the editorial company’s Chicago office, where he began his career in 2003.
Along with the chance to be closer to family and friends, Puglise-Kipley explains that the move back to Chicago affords him a variety of opportunities for growth at Whitehouse Post. “I am looking forward to working with new agencies, creatives and clients and partnering on entertaining new projects,” he says. “I feel as an editor, I learn something new about the craft with every project so I am looking forward to continuing to grow in a new city. I just want to make great stuff for people to watch and hopefully react to.”
During his time at Whitehouse Post, Puglise-Kipley has edited a wide range of projects including Tylenol’s “How We Family” campaign for JWT New York, Lifetime’s “Enjoy Being a Girl” with directors Mark Smith and Spencer Dennis, a gun control PSA for The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence with McCann and most recently, the retro-styled music video “Because I’m Me” for The Avalanches with frequent collaborator and director, Greg Brunkalla.
Partner/ editor Matthew Wood adds, “I watched Sam grow up in the Chicago office and could tell that he had a lot of talent early on. We are really happy to welcome him back, he’s a great addition to the Chicago market and I know he’ll do well here.”
