-Pasadena, CA-based indie agency Ayzenberg Group has welcomed former Dare ECD Philip Khosid as creative director. During his career, Khosid also led creative teams at the likes of Grey and Proximity/BBDO.

-Based solely on reputation, the Sacramento Kings have tapped hometown indie agency MeringCarson to handle creative and digital media for the NBA franchise, which previously worked with various firms on a project basis.
