FITCH Adds Firepower to Its North American Team

FITCH announced the addition of senior creative leaders to support its rapidly growing US business.

Executive Director of the Americas, Christian Davies, has assembled a powerful team of creative leaders to accentuate FITCH's world-class teams in both Columbus and Seattle offices. Among the key additions is Eric Daniel who will oversee US creative output. Eric has worked with some of the world's most recognizable brands such as Frito-Lay, New Balance, Target, and Wal-Mart. Joining him in Columbus is Ryan Brazelton who joins as Design Director from Interbrand Design Forum on the 2D side of the business. Ryan brings extensive experience building brands and identities for clients such as Holiday Inn, Dollar General, Papa John's, and AT&T. Also joining Columbus team is Joanne Putka who returns to FITCH as Design Director in 3D after working for Pavlik in Miami and her own Grape Studios in Cleveland.

The Seattle office welcomes Chad Witzel as Design Director reuniting him with both Eric Daniel and Christian Davies - FITCH's Executive Creative Director of Americas - with whom he was a former colleague at Chute Gerdeman and FRCH Design Worldwide respectively. Chad joins FITCH after a 5-year run as Creative Director of Hyperquake Cincinnati where he was responsible for all creative for that growing independent shop.

Seattle also welcomes Erin Wilson and Luis Infante both of whom join FITCH from Seattle based Callison architecture. Erin and Luis represent part of the renewed focus on retail interiors out of FITCH's Seattle location and join Stuart Johnson (not pictured) who joins the Seattle Studio as Director of Strategy.

"Our mandate at FITCH is Bold Thinking and throughout the search for this latest round of talent we were rigorous in our pursuit not only of industry leaders, but of those who could help reshape our clients' businesses," commented Christian Davies. "I am thrilled to welcome these new additions across two of our US studios and look forward to additional announcements in the weeks and months to come as FITCH continues to grow both here in the US and Globally."
