It’s no secret that digital marketing is in a constant state of flux. Here at Foundry, remaining on the forefront of this ever-evolving landscape is not only important, but critical to our success and ultimately our clients success.
Which is exactly why we’ve decided to create two new roles within the agency and fill them with big-thinkers. Those big thinkers are Tom Duffy, who will be leading as the digital director, and Kevin Stamps, our new director of content.
“With consumers spending more and more time online, there’s no question that a sound digital marketing strategy has become the cornerstone to brand success today,” said Kara Brown, chief of operations at Foundry. “As such, it has been a priority for us to expand on the talent within our digital department. The creative and strategic leadership that Tom and Kevin bring will no doubt prove invaluable in achieving that goal.”
As the digital director, Duffy will oversee all projects and teams that fall under the digital marketing umbrella, with a focus on strategy and implementation. As the director of content, Stamps will oversee the creation and production of all digital content related to photo and video.
“When I joined Foundry, I knew I was joining a talented team,” said Duffy. “Knowing that still didn’t prepare me for the level of knowledge and creativity that I have the honor of working with. I’m surprised by the work we do every day and I look forward to being surprised every day for a long time to come.”
Duffy brings more than 15 years of experience in SEO and digital marketing to the Foundry team. Prior to Foundry, he served as the marketing director for ReadyMax, an industrial safety consumer goods manufacturer, and as president for StreamWorks, a fly fishing accessory manufacturer. He was also the digital director/creative technologist for The Glenn Group, a marketing agency, where he honed his expertise in branding, web development, SEO, application development, digital strategy and social media.
Stamps is an award-winning videographer who has earned quite the reputation for his proficiency in strategizing, directing and producing powerful content across a spectrum of categories including travel, food, education, tech and local small-businesses. No slacker in the accolades department, his work has earned him four Addy Awards as well as national recognition for a video campaign he produced with the Abbi Agency for the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation. He has also worked with Patagonia, Davidson’s Organics, TMCC and Old World Coffee.
We have no doubt these two will take the digital marketing game to a new level. As we barrel toward 2019, be sure to keep an eye on our social networks. We promise we’ve got some exciting things down the pipeline.
