Announced in an article by Brian Morrissey, entitled “Herman Leads Digital at KBS+P” a new chapter in my life has been started. KBS+P is going through an evolutionary period and I’m excited to be joining some new faces and old friends to help lead the agency in it’s next phase.
My belief is that if you are going to create a sustaining communications experience in 2010+, you are going to require a digital backbone. I’m not saying that everything has to be digital, but there will be at least some digital involvement and I’m looking forward to help educate internally, externally, and involve myself on many of kbs+p’s client businesses. If you believe that television, print, radio, OOH are going to become digital in one way or another, which many have already become, then overseeing digital media is a dream job for someone who is a both a big thinker and geek at heart.
I learned at a young age that it takes a village to raise a child and I’m fortunate to not only have my immediate family close to my side, but also an extended family that I’ve met over the past 12 years in business that have all sent me messages through Twitter this morning: @jstylman, @jonsteinberg, @zachrodgers, @donalderyan, @adventurista, @adambain, @thatcherbell, @msg, @dandotlewis, @greenermags, @exchangewire, @johnbattelle, @scottrcrawford, @wmargiloff, @arijacoby, @natsturner, @pubmatic, @anwaraizer, @jonburg, @whitneyhess, @afloam, @davidhonig, @zachcoelius, @seph250, @lmai, @kevinvanlenten, @phineasb, @aaroncoles, @cliqology, @tylerathi5, @guybendov, @rafatali, @zimbalist, @1digitalworld, @vstesin, @chrismasters1, @jlkelly, @yuliz, @fndrsroundtable, @adstruc, @falicon, @davidhelmreich, @pamelaparker, @ericfranchi, @saarpa, @mikeduda, @daveknox, @stbullard, @eporres, @conradlisco, @chrisfralic, @malbonnington, @jonathanmendez, @caro, @clouvi, and of course, @jstnprnll, @sparkle201.

To the future,
