San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 3, 2008
EVB San Francisco, a leading digital marketing firm, is today announcing the appointment of a new Partner and Executive Creative Director, Stephen Goldblatt. The former Group Creative Director from Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, San Francisco joins EVB to oversee day-to-day operations of the creative department at a time when the company is moving from a digital-only boutique to a full-service agency.
Goldblatt brings over fourteen years of industry experience from BBDO, DDB, Butler, Shine and Stern, and Goodby, Silverstein & Partners. During a global search, EVB recognized Goldblatt for his innovative work and selected him for his remarkable talent. Goldblatt is widely acclaimed for creating "The Slowskys" campaign for Comcast and "The Computer is Personal Again" campaign for Hewlett-Packard and has received numerous industry accolades including One Show Pencil, Gold Effie, Gold Lion and AdAge and AdWeek Campaign of the Year awards.
"EVB has a strong creative foundation with an impressive client roster," said Executive Creative Director of EVB, Stephen Goldblatt. "I look forward to leading the agency's creative vision and plan to expand and elevate the versatility of work we produce for all clients."
The hire comes as a result of EVB's strategic business decision to develop and enhance its services to expand the work available to its clients. Evolving from its digital roots, the agency has recently completed expansive campaigns outside the digital medium for clients such as adidas, Levi's and Alberto Culver.
"Forward-thinking clients aren't looking for a digital or traditional agency anymore. They're looking for great ideas and innovative ways to find and connect with their audience, regardless of the medium or platform," said CEO and founder of EVB, Daniel Stein. "Thus, it's natural for EVB to progress and evolve into the non-digital world. Stephen's appointment is a huge step in the right direction, and I'm confident in his ability to take EVB to the next level."
