Firstborn Promotes Snyder to ECD

It’s been a little while since we’ve heard from the Firstborn crew, but the Dentsu-owned, NYC-based digital shop has chimed in this morn to let us know that it’s promoted Dave Snyder to the newly created role of executive director. Snyder has been with Firstborn since 2009, originally joining as an ACD after spending five years as a creative director at the now-defunct, Denver-based digital agency, FL2. As a result of the promotion, Snyder joins the Firstborn management team that also includes founder/CEO Michael Ferdman, CCO Joon Park and president Dan LaCivita.

Along with overseeing creative teams with Park at Firstborn, Snyder will work on new business strategy and development at the 80-person-strong operation.
