Jill Reehl started her career as a junior high school teacher at a public school in Chicago. After five wonderful years, she took some of the skills learned in the classroom in a new direction and became a sales associate at Chicago Music Works. Immediately, she felt at home and has since become recognized as a key player in the craft of commercial making – and everything that goes along with that.
By 1998 Jill had set up her own commercial agency, Get Reehl, representing everyone and anyone connected with the business of cutting edge advertising including directors, editors and music composers. Jill expanded from her Chicago base in 2008 when she founded a West Coast operation and a few years later teamed up with her partner Maggie Davis to create Get Reehl/Get Davis. Over the last decade, Jill has successfully helped build many of the talented companies and brands she has worked alongside into internationally recognized leaders in their fields.
Jill still remains Chi-Coastal, loving it and the crazy advertising world she gets to work and play in. Outside the office, you’ll find Jill either dancing at the front of a live music show, cooking up a storm with a nearby glass of rose or spinning at Soul Cycle. Oh… and accumulating American Airlines points. Natch.
It was an apologetically cold day in Toronto when Maggie started her career in production at Radke Films, fresh from completing her first undergraduate degree in Montreal. Spoiler alert: not her last degree. Maggie enjoyed many roles during her time at Radke, from producer to working on set in the art department. A few productive years went by and then Maggie decided it was time to gain a few more degrees to expand her mind and ensure intimidation at all future cocktail parties for eternity. She earned an undergraduate degree in sociology from NYU and then a master’s degree in communications from the London School of Economics.
In London, Maggie’s intelligence increased but the weather temperatures absolutely refused to. She knew it was time to move to sunny Los Angeles. In LA, Maggie worked with Arianna Huffington and in PR for Heal the Bay. Soon after, she was lured back to the glamorous world of advertising to launch Get Reehl on the West Coast with Jill Reehl. In a flurry, Maggie and Jill built a robust roster of A-list companies. Maggie soon became a partner in the business and Get Reehl/Get Davis was born.
Maggie and Jill have now worked together for eleven wonderful years. In her spare time, Maggie enjoys long runs, drawing, painting, cooking, nurturing her many incredible children, and wondering how she can create more spare time.
Born and raised in the cornfields of Iowa, David spent most of his teenage years stalking movie theaters. This led to a lifelong obsession with filmmaking and, naturally, it wasn’t a huge stretch to then study the subject at DePaul University.
Wanting to learn more about the craft, David moved to the capital city of movies a few years ago to work in post production at the leading editing company Whitehouse. However, David soon realized that long hours spent in a dark, windowless edit suite was not written in his future. Fortunately, Get Reehl/Get Davis entered the frame with an opportunity to use his skills to work alongside some of the most passionate and creative people he has met.
When not stalking the sale racks at Barney’s, David can be found playing alongside many of his friends in advertising, helping to marry great work with great creators. Oh, and he tries to find time to play tennis and hit the gym.
