Hoffman York Appoints Michael Rivera to ECD

Michael Rivera has signed on as  executive creative director at Hoffman York and will oversee creative in the Chicago office as well as interactive creative agency-wide. Rivera was previously at MARC USA then served as ECD at Agency.com, where he led interactive creative assignments for clients such as Hewlett-Packard, Dreamworks Animation, Energizer, Kohler, Aon, and Fisher-Price.

David Sheehan, president of Hoffman York Chicago states,“We had been watching Michael for a long time and we are thrilled to have him join the agency. “Our interactive and Chicago office business has nearly doubled over the past two years. With Michael’s creative and digital expertise and talent, Hoffman York is even better positioned to provide clients with powerful integrated marketing solutions across all platforms.” Too bad Rivera wasn’t important enough to merit a headshot from the agency, though.
