Our success at Den Aviary is directly tied to our ability to work with you, our clients and partners, to create customer value that builds long-term business results. We’ve built into our DNA a practice that is based on endless planning, execution and optimization, and intelligent decision-making that all aligns with your overall business metrics and goals.

In line with that thinking, we’ve had quite a busy first four months of the year: lots of exciting work, new hires and even a new office location. Along with that, we have renewed our commitment to getting new, fresh content out to the blog (starting today!), and our up-and-coming topics cover everything from performance media to creative to digital strategy. We believe that the things we’ve been busy with provide us with great experiences, resources and knowledge that we can leverage for you and keep delivering quality, world class solutions.

For starters, we’re excited to announce the addition of Esosa Ogbomo to our Performance Media team! Esosa comes to us most recently from Frequency 540 and Starcom MediaVest and is super qualified to lead the charge for us in all things paid media and web analytics. Job number one is to establish our positioning in performance media, and begin to extend our capabilities in areas where you need our strategic thinking beyond email and into the other digital channels where we need that expertise. We’re very happy to have Esosa and already have him well entrenched on both existing client work and new opportunities.

We’re also very pleased to welcome our good friend and colleague Lee Rosenthal to Den Aviary as our SVP of Client Success. Lee’s a graduate of Northwestern’s IMC program, spent time at Classified Ventures/Apartments.com, Rewards Network, Bally Total Fitness, Experian and most recently at Return Path. Just about everyone here at Den Aviary has had the pleasure of working with Lee at other stops along our distinct paths; we’re now proud to have him on our team ensuring that your needs are met and that we’re always finding better ways to work together.

Which brings us to our third piece of good news for the day… everything that we’ve been building up for in Q1 of this year was to use our recent growth as a springboard into a new market. And with the hires of both Esosa and Lee, we’re proud to announce the opening of a new Den Aviary office in New York! Lee will run the New York office fulltime from the Financial District downtown. Esosa will be based the in Chicago but will be instrumental in raising the stakes of our media practice to provide a great fit for the New York marketplace.

As you can see, we’re excited about these opportunities and excited about where we’re headed. We’re very committed to your success and we’re making good, smart investments in making certain that we’re where you need us to be. In the coming months we’ll have more good news to share – in the meantime please join us in welcoming Esosa and Lee and as always stop by to see us, now in either Chicago or New York!
