FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Zimmerman, the agency known for its retail expertise, announced today the promotion of key creative personnel to sustain momentum given their recent client wins.
The promotions include Lee Gonzalez, who will take on the role of SVP, Executive Creative Director. Dan Gitlitz will serve as SVP, Group Creative Director. Harry Gonnella and Brian Anderson have been elevated to VP, Group Creative Director roles. They have different backgrounds, but they all share one vision when it comes to an obsessive focus on using creativity to help achieve business objectives. In their new roles, they will continue to report to David Nathanson, EVP, Chief Creative Officer.
Gonzalez, previously Group Creative Director, has been with Zimmerman for eight years, working on accounts like Lane Bryant, Boston Market, Chuck E. Cheese's, Crocs, Six Flags and more.

Anderson brought experience with brands like Norwegian Cruise Lines, Celebrity Cruises and Sandals Resorts.
Jordan Zimmerman, Founder and Chairman of the agency, said, "Creating success in today's fierce retail marketplace requires innovation, instinct and ideas that can both re-position brands while de-positioning their competitors. It is because of this that there has never been a higher value for creative that is sharp, inviting and simple, and Lee, Dan, Harry and Brian understand that better than any team in the business."
Chief Creative Officer David Nathanson added, "We understand we are in the growth business – of business and of people. That is why this announcement is even more special, as they are all very good people who prove themselves on the retail battlefield every day. It makes talent grown from within that much more sweet."
