Organic Names Two New Senior Executives: David Bryant, Chief Creative Officer, and Mark Murata, Chief Talent Officer

First Executive Hires Under CEO David Shulman Reflect Commitment to Talent and Creative

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/20/12 -- David Shulman, CEO of digital marketing agency Organic (www.organic.com), today announced the appointment of two new senior executives: David Bryant to Chief Creative Officer and Mark Murata to Chief Talent Officer.

Bryant, most recently a Creative Strategist at Google, will oversee creative across Organic's global network. Murata, most recently SVP, Talent Acquisition and Retention at Digitas, will manage Organic's talent initiatives.

"I'm thrilled to welcome David and Mark as we transition to a talent and creative led agency," Shulman said. "David is the perfect CCO for Organic. He is a proven leader who's worked for years at the intersection of creativity and technology. That means he knows how to innovate in a way that drives true value for our clients. As for Mark, we have a shared vision that talent comes first and everything else follows. Mark is a pro at building a culture that attracts the best talent and inspiring them to do great work via world-class training, development and recognition programs."

David Bryant, Chief Creative Officer
Bryant, a founding member of Omnicom digital agency Tribal DDB, most recently worked as a Creative Strategist for Google, where he did product visioning and strategy, and created work across many different teams and platforms. Prior to Google, Bryant served as Executive Creative Director, Digital, at Publicis, where he played a key role in the agency's winning Digital AOR for Chevrolet in 2010.

Throughout his career, Bryant has held various executive creative positions at BBH, StrawberryFrog, and Digitas. Notably, in 2003 he built the creative team at Modem Media U.K., raising the agency's creative profile so that by 2005 it was Europe's most awarded interactive agency.

Bryant has received more than 40 awards for digital and film work at festivals and shows including Cannes, Eurobest, and D&AD. He has served on awards juries including D&AD, the One Show, and BIMA interactive.

"It's an exciting time to be a creative when technology, strategy, and creativity are all so interconnected," Bryant said. "I feel lucky for the opportunities I've had to play in those spaces, particularly with my time with Google, which was like going to the richest university in the world. I'm really keen to bring that knowledge to Organic."

Mark Murata, Chief Talent Officer

Murata has more than 25 years of diverse, international corporate HR experience. He has defined and implemented talent acquisition and retention strategies for both Fortune 500 corporations and small to midsized private firms, including Toyota, Ernst & Young, MasterCard, and Porter Novelli.

He most recently worked as SVP, Talent Acquisition and Retention at Digitas, where he managed program development, employee relations, and talent reviews for Digitas and Digitas Health. Prior to that, he was Global Human Resources Director for communications consultancy APCO Worldwide, where he managed HR operations in 29 cities throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, India, and Asia. While leading corporate HR initiatives at Porter Novelli New York from 2003 to 2007, he achieved a 100% retention rate and record-breaking profitability.

"In the agency business, our greatest strength is our people," Murata said. "I'm so pleased to be working with David Shulman, who walks the talk when it comes to putting talent first."
