PASADENA, Calif., June 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the past year Ayzenberg has emerged as one of the leading independent West Coast agencies focused on social-forward campaigns designed to drive large spikes in conversation and engagement among brand audiences. With recognition rolling in for campaigns for Xbox, Microsoft, Warner Brother's Interactive, Zynga and more, the agency is on a roll and plans to continue with three new senior team members: Siobhan O'Neill, Matt West and Steven Lai.
"We have always been in the business of building a team to play in the media arts Super Bowl. It's good to see amazing talent and clients joining our quest," said CEO Eric Ayzenberg.
O'Neill and West join the award-winning social and digital team as leading creative strategists. O'Neill has served a diverse range of Fortune 500 clients in the automotive, CPG, Retail, and Corporate/Public Affairs sectors. During seven-plus years at Edelman Digital, she led the development of integrated marketing and digital crisis management strategies for clients including Nestle, Mattel, Microsoft, Belkin, Bush Brothers & Company, and many more. She is joined by Matt West, who got his start in on-air in radio and later honed his skills behind-the-scenes in broadcast and cable television, most recently leading the digital component of Fox's long-running reality series, American Idol. He has already begun working on Harmonix's campaign for Rock Band 4.
Steven Lai joins Ayzenberg's influencer agency ION after 5 years at Machinima, where he helped build partner-relations efforts and branded integration offerings. At ION, his role will be developing branded partnerships for ION's state of the art toolset for matching brands and creators to activate social content in a long-term and scalable way.
Together these three senior leaders will work to further develop the agency's reputation as a leader in creative delivery through a client-centric approach to integrated marketing.
