Firewood has made another bold move bringing on Warren Marenco Chase as its first chief operating officer to support its continued growth across the agency’s seven offices. The new hire speaks to the direction Firewood continues to pursue in disrupting the traditional agency model by focusing on partnerships and building in-house teams to support clients globally.
Chase most recently served as chief operating officer at Verizon’s in-house creative agency “140” and brings more than 20 years of experience running agency operations in all areas of creative, digital, and media communications. He previously served as EVP, global director at Wunderman San Francisco. Chase also served as global director at BBDO New York and held CEO positions at various BBDO/OMD offices in Latin America.
Firewood will leverage Chase’s unique background across both the traditional and in-house agency space to push Firewood’s evolving model beyond its current state.
“Having been on both sides of the fence and in multiple international markets, I can attest that Firewood’s unique model and approach is a disruptive solution for brands’ ever-evolving, real-time marketing needs,” said Chase. “The company leverages the strength of deep partnerships with clients to deliver amazing creative solutions fast and at scale.”
“Warren understands the importance of our culture and values, and his significant experience is a perfect fit for our next stage of growth,” said Juan Zambrano, co-founder of Firewood. “His leadership will also play a key role as we aggressively expand in the New York and Latin American markets.”
