We’ve received word from Denver-based agency Factory Design Labs that Andrew Price has taken over as global chief creative officer. Price sends this note: “The CCO position was previously held by Blake Ebel. August 2010 – April 2012. Blake was co-CCO at Euro RSCG Chicago, he left to begin a start-up agency here in Denver. The position sat empty for a few months, then I took it over. When I was ECD, it was a sole position created uniquely for me at the time.I can add that Blake’s agency is called ‘Fear Not.” Price has been with FDL since 2000, moving up the ranks from ACD to his most recent post.
He adds, ““I lead by letting my teams take risks. That’s what encourages alternative thinking, and that’s the kind of thing I’ve always thrived on. Factory’s approach would seem out of place on Madison Avenue. We dive into the brands we represent and we always speak authentically. Everything we do is about resonating with the most critical consumer: our clients’ core audience. As a result, people want to work with us and for us because you can be yourself. And with other senior leadership changes and our on-going expansion plans, we are poised to continue making a series impact globally in 2014 and beyond.”
