FCBCure Announces New Leadership Team as Agency Focuses on Talent and Growth in 2017
PARSIPPANY, NEW JERSEY – JANUARY 13, 2017 – Dana Maiman, CEO of FCB Health, announced today that Joe Soto and Steven Hebert have been appointed to the roles of Co-Managing Directors for FCBCure, the company’s New Jersey office.
“We are excited to welcome such a talented team to lead FCBCure,” said Maiman. “Their diverse experience and proven track record, both individually and as a team, will be instrumental in continuing the transformation of our business and the business of our clients.”
Soto and Hebert join FCBCure after spending the past four years together at Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness in Manhattan, where they led account and creative teams, respectively. “For us the key was always about painting a picture of success, for our clients and our people,” said Soto. “At FCBCure and with the FCB Health family, we have an even bigger canvas to work with.”
The transformation of the former ICC Lowe agencies began 18 months ago with their consolidation and introduction into the FCB Health family of agencies. It continued with the rebrand to FCBCure and the renovation of the agency’s offices, tearing down over 150 walls in the process.
Soto and Hebert will lead a staff of 130+ in the company’s offices in Parsippany, New Jersey. “Talent is a top priority for us,” said Hebert who heads up the group’s creative offerings. “There’s a lot of great talent that doesn’t live between the Hudson and East rivers. Now they have a home, closer to home, worth entrusting with their careers.”
According to Soto, “FCBCure is an amazing organization, with the best talent from throughout the industry, backed by the full weight of FCB Health.”
“FCBCure is more than just a name. It is an aspiration, a promise we make to our clients and ourselves,” said Hebert. “It says that we won’t stop, we won’t relent, we won’t back down until we have solved a problem completely. Our clients deserve nothing less.”
