Social media jobs are the craze at agencies large and small and New York’s R/GA (IPG), which bills itself as “the agency for the digital age”, has beefed up its offering with eight new hires. The agency has some 100 open positions, we’re told. Here’s the details on their social media hires.
The eight join R/GA’s mobile and emerging platforms department and will work under vp ecd Richard Ting.
Conrad Lisco (pictured, right) will handle the social and mobile strategy director position across the company. Cyrus Vantoch-Wood comes on as a creative director.
Six others were hired in social media strategist, social media activation lead, social media coordinator and interaction designer capacities.
