Prior to Moxie/ZenithOptimedia, Dicker founded her own social media marketing agency, KARMA Media Labs, where she built brand awareness through social media marketing and digital word of mouth programs. KARMA led digital engagement programs for entertainment companies, brands and individuals including ATARI, LA Film Festival, CBS Films, WB Television and Skagen Denmark.

"I've long admired Ogilvy's integrated approach to social innovation," said Dicker. "I am very excited to work with such a high caliber of clients and talented people in Chicago and around the globe."
Liz Taylor takes on the role of SVP, executive creative director, a new position that will drive digital and creative program development for current and future clients across the Midwest compass.

Her work has won numerous industry awards including recognition at Cannes, One Show, Communication Arts, Clio, Effie, AICP, New York Festival and London International. Taylor graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Portfolio Center in Atlanta.
"It's not every day that you get the opportunity to work at an agency with integrated offerings all under one roof (on the same floor no less), a president that puts a premium on great creative and a culture that is both welcoming and genuinely fun. The Chicago office has enjoyed incredible new business success over the past year. I am thrilled to join such a smart, talented group of people," says Taylor.
