Fishburn joins the team as chief strategy officer. He comes from leading F3 Ideas as the management consulting company’s CEO. Fishburn has also held positions at Yahoo! and Ogilvy & Mather.
Newly appointed Zealot chief marketing officer Chad Seymour enters the company from Neighbor Agency, where he worked with brands like California Pizza Kitchen, Jamba Juice, and PETCO.
