Mullen Chief Creative Officer Mark Wenneker announced today that Stephen Goldblatt has joined the agency as Chief Digital Officer. Goldblatt will work with Wenneker to lead a diverse team of creative technologists, user experience specialists and developers across the agency’s Boston and San Francisco offices. Goldblatt comes to Mullen from Evolution Bureau in San Francisco, where he was Partner and Executive Creative Director and led some of the agency’s most innovative digital creative, including Facebook Studio, “Mob the Rainbow” for Skittles, “Serenading Unicorn” for Juicy Fruit and “Gagaville” for Zynga.
Prior to joining EVB, Goldblatt was at Goodby Silverstein & Partners for eight years as a Group Creative Director, leading some of the agency’s famous and distinguished work for HP (“The Computer Is Personal Again”).
“What Stephen has done at EVB in the last four years has been awesome to watch,” said Wenneker. “This was an idea born out of trust, friendship and admiration. We have a massive group of digital talent waiting to be led. Now we have that leader.”
“Mullen has the right amount of altitude to be able to take risks other agencies can’t,” said Goldblatt. “We’ll have the opportunity to put into practice the learning from the past four years by developing work for clients across all platforms that originates from a social insight. I’m excited to work with a team that has a shared vision of doing innovative work. And I’m excited to work closely with Mark.”
Goldblatt brings a global perspective to his work, having started his career in Prague at MARK BBDO and subsequently working at DM9DDB in Sao Paulo. He has been recognized at every major international award show, including D&AD, Cannes Lions (where he recently judged the Cyber Lions), Art Directors Club, The One Show, Clio Awards and LIAA. Under his guidance, EVB has twice been recognized as a Stand-Out Agency by Advertising Age and he was personally recognized recently as one of the Top Creative Minds in Digital by to Adweek.
