DDB Creative Director Paul Tilley Dead at 40
Pointless drama aside, Paul Tilley is dead. Paul was the creative director at DDB in Chicago and on Friday he decided to jump out of a Fairmont Hotel window at 6:25 PM, plunging to his death. His death hasn't yet been ruled a suicide and is still under investigation according to the Chicago police.
Whether or not Tilley was a nice man, a bad man, a good boss, a bad boss, a jerk or the most wonderful man in the world, his death is a tragic loss of human life. A loss to DDB. A loss to his family.
MarketingVOX reports Tilley was one of the creatives behind Dell's "Dude, You're Gettin' a Dell" campiagn which was partially responsible for boosting Dell from number four to number one in at-home PC sales. That certainly can't be all bad.
Paul was 40 and leaves behind his wife and two children.
