Independent shop Olson in Minneapolis has promoted marketing director Ryan Linder to vice president. At the agency, he leads the charge on all new business efforts. Linder joined Olson from Jack Morton Worldwide in January 2007 as an interactive account supervisor, and moved to new business marketing director the following year. Said Kevin DiLorenzo, agency president and CEO: "He uses his diverse and integrated background to drive the development of strategic and creative brand communications. With Ryan's help, in just the last two years, Olson has experienced phenomenal growth and recognition."
