Kyle Marquis joined Quirk Cape Town in March 2014 as a Business Unit Director. 13 is an auspicious number for him, because that’s how many years of experience he brings to Quirk, after working as a Business Unit Director at King James and on top global brands in London and Amsterdam. Kyle’s work ethic and approach to problems has earned him the nickname, The Wolf, after Harvey Keitel’s no-nonsense character from Pulp Fiction. His childhood hero was the leader of the A-Team, John Hannibal “I love it when a plan comes together” Smith; which really speaks to his passion for leading.
Kyle is on the cutting edge of advertising but, in his life, family comes first (his Nespresso machine second). Kyle is a proud 80s child, with an old school love of MacGyver, Air Wolf and Knight Rider and as such his choice for a superpower is similarly old school – flight. Kyle is defined by his determination, loyalty and fearlessness for his family and for his career. For this we’re excited to have Kyle in our corner.
“When I was 5 years old, my mother told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life.” – John Lennon.
