I am excited about the bright future of Razorfish’s SIM practice, and the engaging and strategic work our team will continue to produce.

Razorfish, one of the world’s largest interactive marketing agencies, expanded its Social Influence Marketing (SIM) practice by adding three social media specialists to the New York office, and promoted Chris Bowler, VP, Social Media, to lead the team nationally.
In his role, Bowler will focus on cultivating Razorfish’s social strategy, identifying key social media and technology partners, working closely with client teams, and rapidly building out the teams within each region.
