After minutes of fierce agreement, the choice was obvious. The new Digital Director could only be Chris Ho. True to his nature, Ho seized the opportunity, and the 22-year advertising veteran joined the CJRW team in a leadership role. A force in digital advertising since its inception, Chris has seen the field evolve from blinking banner ads to brand-wide digital marketing strategies for national clients.
Across the country last Friday, people gathered to celebrate. And while the Fourth was still a few days out, Friday was the perfect day to celebrate our enthusiastic dependence on social media. We are referring, of course, to National Social Media Day, and CJRW rolled out the red carpet to honor the king of the hashtag holidays with a whole day of events and free swag. The event was Memes On Main, and despite the rain, it was a totally sharable success, thanks in large part to a very motivated class of interns.
