Blue Issue Agency Names Kirk Heinlein President
DALLAS, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ — Blue Issue Agency has named Kirk Heinlein agency president, a newly created position at the creative services and talent management firm. Heinlein will manage general business operations and client services, as well as provide strategic direction and execution for Blue Issue’s growth and expansion initiatives. Heinlein previously served as general manager for the Dallas office of Cheil Worldwide, a Samsung Group-affiliated marketing and advertising agency.
“After five years of growth and success, Blue Issue is now ready for our next stage of expansion. To continue our growth, it’s important for us to attract best-in-class leadership to take us to the next level. I’m very excited because Kirk will provide exactly that leadership,” said Blue Issue founder Jonas Park.

“Under the leadership of Jonas Park, Blue Issue has seen tremendous growth and success over the last five years – so much so that, in order to continue that growth, the agency needed to add additional leadership. I’ve got many years’ experience in growing companies – creatively, financially and within the industry – I’m enthusiastic about where we can take Blue Issue. Building on the strength of our past performance, there are truly no limits,” said Heinlein.
“You have no idea about how happy I am to add Kirk to our Blue Issue team. It allows me to focus nearly 100 percent of my efforts on delivering superior creative ideas for our clients, all while cultivating new and exciting creative talent,” added Park.
