At Brandfire, our growth and success continues to build. This year we celebrated our 10th anniversary as well as hired a dozen new team members, including Ira Baptiste and Doug Maugham in key senior roles. Ira joins Brandfire as Senior Vice President, and Doug will be leading our creative department as Executive Creative Director. Ira has held key leadership roles with BBDO, Cossette and Vodaphone UK, while Doug was most recently at TRAFFIK after spending six years creating award-winning work for multi-national clients at JWT.
Other new additions to the Brandfire family include Leslie Maislin (Group Account Director), Amanda Somers (Director of Creative Operations), Garin Mcintosh (Senior Account Supervisor), Lance Pilon (Senior Art Director), Samantha O’Connor (Account Manager), Leena Sing-Bajwa (Account Manager), Amber Edwards (Account Coordinator), Jason Puckering (Account Coordinator), Stephen Liu (Front End Developer), Tristan Ferri (Social Media Coordinator), Annette Faccin (Controller) and Tanya Edwards (Account Manager).
All this growth has been sparked by a host of exciting new brand assignments from clients like Loblaws, Golf Canada, Ontario Lottery and Gaming, The Ontario SPCA, The Ontario Soccer Association, Mongoose, Spectrum brands, and Baby Jogger. With such an incredible brand roster and talented, passionate team, it’s never been a more exciting time to be at Brandfire!
