RW: Thanks for having me. I’ve been brought on as the National Studio General Manager, to help integrate our 48 studios and cross-agency teams of creative, data design, and innovation.
RW: Prior to joining Deloitte Digital, I was the COO of McCann New York, where I focused on client operations and workflow processes. I also worked with McCann’s clients to develop operating models/structures, compensation models, governance, onboarding, and ongoing process and cultural improvements. Before that I was at RAPP (a CRM/direct/digital agency) and Agency.com.
RW: I started in technology and wanted to get back to my roots. But more importantly, my decision to join Deloitte Digital boiled down to the people. Everyone I met seemed sincerely genuine with a common goal, and well, that perspective is infectious.
RW: I think Deloitte is in a unique position to truly deliver against all touchpoints across the marketing ecosystem. There is a rich history of matching business needs with technology solutions. Now with HEAT, Customer Strategy and Applied Design, and HUX, we can complete the picture to redefine what an agency collaborator can be for our clients.
RW: We have many offerings spread across the US and other locations. My role will be to look across all of our studios and create a common language and way(s) of working. This challenge is also a tremendous opportunity for Deloitte Digital.
RW: As I mentioned earlier, it’s all about the people you work with. Being part of a team that generally likes each other and is working towards a common goal is truly inspiring.
RW: I have two young boys that take up most of my free time. If we aren’t on the beach, we have family with a lake-house, so swimming and fishing are both favorites for us. In the winter we hibernate and play video games.
RW: Tie between “thinking face” and “oncoming fist.”
RW: Well, I’ve been trying to get into country recently. Right now, it’s Tedeschi Trucks Band and Zac Brown Band.
RW: I’m really excited to join Deloitte Digital. I’m super happy to be here and look forward to meeting everyone.
