Creative marketing agency EVB today announced the promotion of Group Account Director Steve Barry to the newly created position of managing director and Creative Director Troy Burrows to executive creative director.
"We could not be more excited to have Steve and Troy at the helm in Boulder,” said EVB’s CEO, Daniel Stein. That office has seen incredible growth over the past 12 months, and they have both been a big part of contributing to its success. I have no doubt that the office will continue to thrive under their leadership."
Barry oversees some of the agency’s largest national accounts, including SunChips and Kraft (Maxwell House, Gevalia, Tassimo and MiO). He has a track record in account service and rounds out his portfolio with creative development, brand strategy, positioning and planning experience.
Barry joined EVB as an account director in early 2014 and was promoted to group account director in October of 2014.
Burrows joined EVB in spring of 2014, and his work has spanned both the Boulder and Oakland offices. He’s been key to a number of EVB’s new business wins, including Jameson Irish Whiskey, SunChips, Ebates, Hipmunk and Hot Wheels, and has touched every piece of agency business.
Prior to his arrival, Burrows’ career took him from Chicago to Seattle to Miami at shops such as FCB, Creature, and CP+B, where he created campaigns for Sharpie, DiGiorno Pizza, Dickies and the Seattle Office of Film + Music.
Burrows is replacing EVB Partner/ECD Steve Babcock, who left the agency to pursue other opportunities.
EVB’s Boulder office was a creative wing until recently, when new business and organic-client growth made a full-service office a necessity. The office now has strategists, an account group with more than a half-dozen members and a large creative team.
EVB uses creativity and their grasp of culture to make brands meaningful, profitable and famous.
As a full-service agency, they partner with brands to help solve their business challenges by boosting their cultural relevancy. They develop press-worthy ideas, meaningful platforms, useful utilities and entertaining social currency that connect on an authentic and intimate level, resulting in natural participation, co-creation, sharing and good ol’ fashioned brand love.
They don’t help brands join the conversation. They help brands be the conversation.
