TEN UNITED

After nearly four decades in the advertising business as a writer, creative director and strategist, Jim Calderone retired Dec. 31 as president of Ten United’s Pittsburgh office.

“Our agency has been fortunate to have a man like Jim here for seven years,” said Bill Binstock, Ten United CEO. “He is terrific with clients, and he’s been a great leader and mentor for our staff, and a great partner and friend to me. Much of our success over the past several years can be credited to Jim’s leadership.”

Calderone, 59, says he’s been mulling retirement for some time.

“I’m ready to slow down from the pace of 60-hour weeks filled with meetings, strategy sessions, brainstorming and ever-present deadlines. I finally decided the time was right to stop making excuses for putting it off any longer.”

Calderone intend sto keep his hands in the advertising business as a teacher and part-time consultant, including doing consulting work for Ten United.

“My approach for developing strategies and creative direction — as well as guiding the Pittsburgh office — has always been more as a teacher than a manager,”Calderone says. “I want to continue sharing my views and experience in both academic and professional settings. I’d also like to develop a better golf game, but I’m afraid it might be too late for that.”

Binstock credited Calderone’s efforts as a major factor in Ten United being awarded the national advertising business for The Hoover Company — an account Calderone spearheaded for a number of years.

“Jim is responsible for much of the success of the Pittsburgh office,” said Binstock. “Most of all, his great disposition created an atmosphere that let this agency succeed. That one simple aspect of his style made all the difference.”
