The charter for marketers is broader than ever. As our agency rises to address this growing need, we’re thrilled to accelerate our growth through key strategic hires like Stu.

Hero Digital, the leading independent customer experience agency, today announced the addition of Stuart Coleman to its leadership team to run Strategy and M&A for the agency. This is a new position for Hero and highlights its drive to be the number one independent customer experience agency, with a full-service offering across North America. Stuart will be leading growth strategy for the agency and will be evaluating new acquisition targets that can further the transformational work Hero does for its clients. Most recently Stuart served as VP, Strategy & Investments at MDC Partners, a publicly-traded holding company. At MDC, Stuart developed corporate strategy and originated acquisitions, primarily focused on high-growth digital agencies. Some of his deals included Instrument, Y Media Labs, and GALE.

Today’s modern brands benefit from agency partners that are digital natives, born to solve complex customer experience challenges by integrating technology, creativity, strategy, and data. The age of Sir Martin Sorrell and his holding company approach is over. The market wants a lean, independent agency partner that is free from the weight of old-economy businesses and able to operate with the singular goal of improving the customer experience for brands. Stuart decided to join the Hero Digital team in order to help chart the way forward for both the company, and the industry as a whole.

“The charter for marketers is broader than ever. As our agency rises to address this growing need, we’re thrilled to accelerate our growth through key strategic hires like Stu,” said David Kilimnik, Hero Digital CEO. “With Stu’s leadership, we will find the best agencies and teams to partner with. Stu brings deep industry expertise, a matchless track record, and the entrepreneurial energy that is shared by myself and the other leaders of Hero.”

“Hero Digital fuses technology, creative, and data to help clients transform their businesses. This approach is the future of the industry, and Hero is well-positioned to be a strategic partner to marketers and offer the new set of tools critical to their success. I’m excited to work with like minded entrepreneurs, bring great agencies into Hero, and build the leading company within our industry,” said Stuart Coleman.
