919 Marketing Elevates Two Marketing Veterans to C-Suite

919 Marketing, one of the nation’s fastest-growing content marketing agencies, headquartered outside of Raleigh, NC, announces the promotions of Graham Chapman to President and Scott Curkin to Chief Relationship Officer.

For almost a decade, Chapman and Curkin have worked together to help grow 919’s reputation and influence across all marketing channels. While they will be taking on additional responsibilities in these new roles, the pair will continue to do what they do best – creating and maintaining lasting relationships and executing marketing strategies that generate meaningful results.

“Graham and Scott have played key roles in establishing 919 as the agency of choice for many brands across the country who are eager to grow their business,” said CEO and founder David Chapman, 919 Marketing’s CEO and founder.

“Since joining 919 Marketing over a decade ago, Graham has been actively involved in virtually every facet of the company, including operations, sales, and marketing roles. His promotion to President is well-deserved and perfectly timed as we expand our locations across the country and accelerate our data-driven marketing services to a new level.”

“Scott Curkin has played an instrumental role in our new business growth for more than eight years,” David Chapman added. “He’s done an excellent job building strong client relationships after previous stints leading digital media departments for local and national TV media outlets. Scott’s passion for ensuring 919 delivers the highest customer service experience and tangible results for current and future 919 clients makes him a perfect fit for his new role as Chief Relationship Officer.”

As President, Graham Chapman will serve as 919 Marketing’s integrator, bringing the CEO’s vision to life and ensuring the company meets and exceeds all sales, marketing, operations, and financial goals.

“I am honored that the 919 Marketing board and leadership team agree that I’m ready to help lead the company in this new position,” said Chapman. “We’ve grown and evolved into a much different and much stronger company than the one I joined in 2009. I’m proud of the role I’ve played building our reputation, establishing critical partnerships, and recruiting phenomenal team members. The journey has just begun, and I look forward to working hand-in-hand with 919’s executive leadership team as we begin this next exciting chapter in the 919 story.”

As Chief Relationship Officer, Curkin will lead 919 Marketing’s Account Services Department, which serves as the communication liaison between all clients and internal teams, and he’ll run point on all 919 sales activities (franchising, multi-location retail, non-profits, etc.). In this role, he will continue to create and maintain meaningful client relationships to identify and resolve challenges, support 919 team members, and expand 919’s client roster.

“I am both humbled and honored to receive this promotion at 919 Marketing,” Curkin said. “I take great pride in the relationships we build, beginning with the sales process and continuing all the way through the success of the partnership. The growth of 919 Marketing has truly been remarkable thanks to our passionate commitment to the brands we work with and the great work our employees execute every day. The story is ongoing, and I look forward to leading the Account Services Department into the next chapter.”
