FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Zimmerman, Omnicom's retail growth machine, today announced the promotion of David Nathanson to Chief Creative Officer, effective immediately. Previously, Nathanson was executive creative director, serving in that role for nearly eight years.

Goldberg had this to say. "It is an honor to recognize David in this important position, but the reality is that David accepted the responsibility the minute he first walked into the building 8 years ago. What makes him so special to me is that we share aspiration. That is, to make the work as brilliant as it can be without ever losing sight of the client's business we commit ourselves to growing.  We celebrate great work that works great or we keep working until it is – and does."
