Euro SF Digital Exec Transfers to Chicago Office

Euro RSCG San Francisco’s director, digital services Kevin Newby is headed to the agency’s Windy City office to take on the newly created director, digital strategy post.

Newby’s ties to the Euro camp dates back to the late nineties, when he assumed a VP/creative director post in the New York office after the shop he co-founded, Rockpile Interactive, was acquired by the Havas agency. He subsequently went on to help start up another interactive firm, Kadium, back in 2001 and ran it for over six years, landing clients such as Sony Computer Entertainment America, Adobe and the U.S. Air Force in the process. Newby rejoined Euro in 2008 and now that he’s headed to Chicago, the exec will be responsible for supporting clients across the agency’s roster including Sprint, Groupon and Beam Global Spirits & Wine.

Newby kicked off his career at Foote Cone & Belding SF, which he once claimed brought him on as its first interactive designer.
