Method has announced the appointment of TV industry veterans, Geoff Katz (pictured right) and John Gilles as Vice Presidents of Media and Entertainment. Katz and Gilles will drive Method’s business strategy and development in the interactive television sector and focus on providing its expanding roster with strategy.

The firm has a roster that includes Sony, Gucci, Microsoft, Visa, Comcast, Nike, Adobe, and Yahoo! Method has offices in San Francisco, New York and London and is sort of like Ideo in that the agency focuses on brand experience through design.

Katz has contributed to two Primetime Emmy Award-winning interactive television projects. In 2006, his work on the TiVo Service was recognized for excellence by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for Outstanding Achievement for Enhanced or Interactive Programming. Currently, Geoff is the chairman of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Interactive Media Peer Group Emmy Awards Committee.

Gilles has led interactive media for three cable networks, Comcast-owned G4TV, TechTV and its predecessor, ZDTV. He was also a technology correspondent for Wired News and Gannett Newspapers. He is Vice Chair of the Producers Guild of America Bay Area Chapter and member of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Interactive Media Peer Group, as well as frequent mentor for the American Film Institute’s Digital Content Laboratory.

Whew. Okay… got all that?
