CINCINNATI – May 14, 2019 — Cincinnati-based Curiosity adds to its C-suite with the hire of Ashley Walters as Chief Development Officer. She will be responsible for agency growth and marketing, as well as new capabilities and service offerings as the agency seeks to accelerate its growth strategy.
“We are seeing a resurgence for independent, integrated creative agencies and we need someone with a deep understanding of today’s rapidly changing marketplace to help drive the agency forward,” said Greg Livingston, Chief Operating Officer. “With an impressive track record of successfully driving agency growth and recognition, there is no doubt Walters is an ideal fit for Curiosity. Not only does she understand the value of being an independent agency, she has a purpose-driven, curious mindset that will be a great cultural fit, which is incredibly important to who we are as a company.”
Walters previously spent nine years at independent media agency, Empower, where she most recently ran business development and marketing, leading them to record-breaking revenue three years in a row and multiple accolades, including a spot on the AdAge Agency A-List Award roster.
“The allure of siloed, big New York agencies is eroding and clients are looking for more nimble, integrated solutions that are fueled by creativity and backed by excellent client service,” said Walters. “I’m excited to be part of the leadership team at an agency whose mission is to foster curiosity and creativity while solving hard business challenges."
Walters marks the third C-suite hire in the past year for Curiosity. Trey Harness, President and Chief Client Officer and Jeff Warman, Chief Creative Officer round out the executive leadership team poised to fuel future growth at the agency.
