Faszholz Indeed Heads to Critical Mass

It took a bit to confirm to get confirmation from the agency itself, but to follow up on our brief mention last week, Bret Faszholz, account-side vet and reported real estate game-player, has joined Omnicom-owned Critical Mass in the New York office as VP/client partner. According to CM, Faszholz officially assumed his role, which calls for him to work on the HP business, on March 18. During his career, the exec has worked on the VW biz as account director while at CP+B and most recently on Dell as group account director at WPP-owned VML.
