Former Under Armour creative leader brings over 20 years of experience in inspiring consumers and turbo-charging brands
Planit, one of Baltimore’s top communications, marketing and interactive agencies, announced today that Jed Jecelin has joined the firm as executive creative director. In his new role, Jecelin will oversee and manage the agency’s entire creative process, from defining the creative structure to directing the development of big ideas and campaign strategies and leading creative client discussions.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Jed to our team as executive creative director,” said Ed Callahan, co-founder and creative strategist at Planit. “Planit continues to grow and evolve quickly and I’m confident he will enable our already strong creative team to deliver the outstanding creative excellence that reaches the hearts and minds of consumers and most importantly, lead change and make a difference for our clients.

With more than 20 years of creative and marketing leadership experience, Jecelin spent the last 14 years as a creative lead at Under Armour where he oversaw the brand’s revenue-driving categories including Running, Training, Women’s and Team Sports, as well as developing the positioning around new innovations from the ground up. He managed the in-house creative team as well as global teams and agency partners in the development of fully-integrated global brand campaigns, product launches, social activations, in-store/ecommerce installations, and pro athlete collaborations.
“Joining the awesome, talented team at Planit is an exciting step in my creative journey,” said Jecelin. “The last two decades have been truly humbling and rewarding—working with world-class athletes, renowned directors, and some of the world’s best creatives and agencies to bring ideas to life.
