MJD Nabs Blitz Director of Biz Dev

And now, a little SoCal news. We’ve received confirmation that digital agency MJD Interactive, a seven-year-old operation that houses offices in both San Diego and L.A., has welcomed Matt Motschenbacher as CMO/managing partner. The new exec, who officially assumes his post at MJD tomorrow, arrives from Santa Monica-based agency Blitz, where he spent the last 18 months as senior director/business development. Along with the usual CMO duties including overseeing strategic marketing, biz dev and PR efforts, Motschenbacher is also tasked with expanding MJD’s L.A. presence.

Regarding his new shop, the new CMO says, “They have elevated their offerings to better address the needs and wants of today’s digitally savvy customers and it’s inspiring to be a part of their tremendous growth and amazing work.” Prior to Blitz, Motschenbacher spent two years as director of biz dev at Digitaria’s San Diego hub. As for MJD, the digital shop currently counts clients including Oakley, Titleist Golf, Vail Resorts and Riot Games. In addition, we’re hearing that the agency is also set to launch a project for Comic-Con and Legendary Films, which we should hear about some time this week.
