Wednesday Odds and Ends

Brooks Day Takes West Coast Biz Dev Gig at Razorfish

It seems like it’s been a while since we’ve heard about a notable Razorfish appointment (Patrick Hounsell‘s hiring in January is the last thing that comes to mind), but the Publicis-owned agency has now welcomed a new director of business development for its West Coast operations by the name of Brooks Day. Who’s that, you ask? Well, Day arrives from San Francisco-based online video/technology firm Clikthrough, where he spent two years as partner and executive director, business development. Prior to Clikthrough, Day worked as senior manager, biz dev at local shop Fancy, which if you may remember was once home to creative directors Geoff Edwards and Mauro Alencar.

Anyhow, back to Day. In his new gig at Razorfish, the exec will remain in SF but, as his title implies, will oversee all West Coast new biz activity for the Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles offices as well. Tipsters tell us that he will report to Razorfish’s SVP of business development, Wes Breyfogle, who’s based in Austin.

As long as we catching you up on Razorfish, on the creative front, the agency recently brought on Organic alum Sam Cannon as ECD in the Central region and Pierre Odendaal as CD in the East.
