Schad Joins Risdall

Risdall is pleased to announce that Dave Schad has joined Risdall as Executive Vice President and General Manager. Schad most recently served as the General Manager of FleishmanHillard Minneapolis and has extensive agency leadership experience formed at FleishmanHillard, PadillaCRT, Group One, and Carmichael Lynch.

His experience in leading and growing agency teams will be a great asset to Risdall as his background aligns well with the agency given his strong belief in the value of an integrated model of digital platform development, digital marketing and communications, content strategy, paid digital engagement and analytics.

In joining Risdall, Schad said, “I’m excited about the opportunity to help shape the future of an agency that is so deeply committed to the growth of the brands we serve through impressive digital capability and true integration of communications and technology. The expertise that’s assembled here is drawn from both agency and corporate settings representing some of the brightest talent in the Cities. I’m looking forward to showcasing this team’s collective abilities.”

“In the past couple of years, Risdall has made some important hires to bring the level of experience and talent here to another level,” said Ted Risdall, Chairman/CEO of Risdall. “Dave Schad is a leader with a strong track record of success and his addition to guide our strategic growth will be a tremendous advantage to our clients and future.”

Risdall had previously announced additions to its brand development, creative, and digital marketing teams earlier in 2017 to provide industry-leading counsel for clients.
