Ad man is the newest arts commissioner

Successful ad man Greg Chew is the city’s newest arts commissioner.

The Board of Supervisors voted 10-0 Tuesday confirming Mayor Gavin Newsom’s appointment of Chew.

It is the latest appointment to the commission after it saw a number of abrupt resignations.

Prior to Tuesday’s meeting, some supervisors said in the future they would like to see appointees who represent alternative artists, struggling artists and the like.

Chew “has worked with many Fortune 500 companies. However, for one small client in the ‘dried fruit category’ he was one of the original team to help create the enormously successful ‘California Dancing Raisins Campaign,’” according to his resume.
