Olson promotes Linder from new biz director to VP

OLSON has promoted marketing director Ryan Linder to vice president. At the agency, he leads the charge on all new business efforts. Linder joined OLSON from Jack Morton Worldwide in January 2007 as an interactive account supervisor, and moved to new business marketing director the following year.

“Ryan’s hard work has really helped land us where we are today — one of the top 10 independent agencies in the United States,” says Kevin DiLorenzo, president and CEO, OLSON. “He uses his diverse and integrated background to drive the development of strategic and creative brand communications. With Ryan’s help, in just the last two years, OLSON has experienced phenomenal growth and recognition.”

“My proudest moments happen every time we pursue and secure new client partnerships,” says Ryan Linder, OLSON’s marketing director, VP. “Success in agency business development relies heavily on team chemistry and expertise, and OLSON’s collective and perfectly focused team effort has allowed us to experience success even during this most recent turbulent economic period.”

Ryan holds a degree in advertising and public relations, and is pursuing an MBA at the University of St. Thomas, Minneapolis. He and his wife have two small boys — which means when he rides his semi-custom motorcycle he always wears his helmet.
