NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- Carat Fusion tapped Stephen Berner as VP-director of business development, East Coast. The move, along with the promotion of Andrew Kennedy to VP-director of business development, West Coast, continues a period of staff expansion for the Aegis digital-marketing agency.
Mr. Berner comes to Carat Fusion from Chameleon, a strategic interactive marketing and design firm he helped found. While Mr. Kennedy has been with Carat Fusion for two years, he has held various positions within Saatchi & Saatchi, including interactive-group account director of Team One Advertising in Los Angeles.
Together, Messrs. Berner and Kennedy will work with the agency's client services and other departments.
In a statement, Carat Fusion President Scott Sorokin said: "We're fortunate to have Stephen and Andrew as an integral part of our expanded business-development team, as they bring deep knowledge of marketing services, agency workings and the interactive industry as a whole."
