Experience Design Firm Usable Adds CP+B Vet

usableBrooklyn/Boulder-based experience design firm Usable has added an agency veteran to its leadership team.

Due to a recent growth trend, the firm hired Joe Salvati, who previously spent two years as ED of digital marketing at Starz Entertainment.

Prior to the Starz gig, Salvati was director of digital strategy/MD at Boulder’s Sterling-Rice Group; that agency stole him from CP+B, where he was an account director. He also served as SVP and partner at The Wonderfactory.

Salvati is hardly the first ad vet to join the firm. Usable partner Cyrus Clemensen worked alongside him at CP+B as Creative Technology Director leading Old Navy, Amex Travel and Coke Zero. Two of Usable’s Brooklyn-based partners also worked at R/GA “on and off…for the past 15 years.”

A list of 2013/14 clients includes TedMed, Canon, PopDust, Google, Ruth Chris and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
