WASHINGTON: Golin Harris is bringing former CareerBuilder. com VP Eric Lochner aboard as EVP for the Southeastern region, a newly created position.
Lochner said the IPG firm has experienced significant regional growth in recent years, thanks to the success of its branding and corporate citizenship practices. The new post will oversee operations throughout the Southeast, as well as help provide more seamless client service between the various offices.
"We've carved out a niche in the marketplace, especially here in DC, and it's led to tremendous growth," said Lochner.
The 35-year-old EVP arrives from job website CareerBuilder. com, where for five years he was VP in charge of b-to-b marketing efforts. Before that he was a senior consultant at Kuczmarski & Associates, a Chicago-based marketing strategy firm.
