Agency’s growth of brand, reputation, bold digital offerings and XM innovations spark change
Toronto, ON. FUSE Marketing Group (www.fusemg.com) -- the Toronto-based, privately held integrated agency that offers a full range of marketing, digital, XM, CRM, and digital content – is living its mission to Do Epic! by promoting two key leaders in its executive team.
Since joining FUSE over three years ago, award-winning creative director Patrick Weir now assumes the title of SVP creative and innovation, under which FUSE’s overall creative product, video production, dynamic social content creation as well as digital and XM innovations remain at the forefront of his thinking. Brie Taylor now adds a VP to her title, following three years as director of client services, during which she spearheaded strong client relationships and garnered trust and respect from FUSE’s blue chip roster of clients, her team and the staff at FUSE. The agency has recently experienced a tremendous growth surge, key hires and internal promotions following its dive into data science, brand storytelling and a greater breadth in digital content, creative technology and experiential offerings.
“With our focus on innovative and technically unique connected experiences, we’re excited to elevate Patrick’s role at FUSE,” explained Stephen Brown, president, FUSE Marketing Group. “He’s been incredibly successful at getting our brand and clients to the next level by consistently delivering unique creative while challenging our clients’ thinking.”
Mr. Brown added, “Equally important, the foundation of any smart, successful and innovative agency rests on the power of strong, solid client relationships that build trust and value. Brie’s team consistently delivers, and we are happy to have seen her rise to this challenge during her time at FUSE. As we continue to grow and make inroads into new marketing avenues, having solid and strategic relationships is critical and we know Brie will deliver.”
