VANCOUVER, BC – Vancouver-based digital agency FCV has named Simon Hardy to the role of VP Design. A new position, Hardy’s promotion underscores the importance FCV places on creative and design as the fast-growing agency prepares to open its second office, located in Toronto, to serve its growing business on the East Coast.
Since joining FCV as Senior Creative Director last year, the agency has deepened its creative bench, as well as attracted new brands like WestJet, Tourism BC and the BC Lottery Corporation. Highlights include an internationally recognized integrated campaign for Vancouver Coastal Health; a significant marketing engagement for BC Transit; and a digital rebrand for Nature’s Path Foods.
“Shoring up our creative team with Simon at the helm has made our creative product stronger than ever,” explained Johann Starke, FCV’s President & CEO. “A credit to our creative work preceding him, we believe his commitment to this leadership role is an incredible signal to our clients of the outstanding level of creative output they can expect from FCV as we continue to grow as an agency.”
Beginning nearly 20 years ago, Hardy’s celebrated career spans a wide variety of different media – from television, radio, print and digital – and has earned him top honours from some of the industry’s most coveted award shows. His accolades include D&AD, One Show, Cannes, FWA and the Webby’s for his work with Fortune 500 brands like Starbucks, Nike and Brand Jordan.
“FCV creative has always been very strong,” said Hardy. “But over the last year we’ve seriously raised the bar and I’m thrilled to be part of such a great team working to build our reputation in Toronto and beyond.”
FCV is presently seeking a Managing Director for its Toronto office location.
