Collin Douma joins H&K Digital

posted by Brendan Hodgson

Finding smart people who fundamentally ‘get’ how digital and traditional intersect, who have ’real’ experience  consulting with some of the largest brands in the world, who are both thinkers and doers in the social media sphere, and who have a fetish for steam punk and soviet-era posters, has never been easy.

In recent months, my colleague David Jones and I have realized just how difficult it is to find (and then recruit) that right blend of talent to add to the digital team. We’ve interviewed some very smart and uniquely experienced people who for, a variety of reasons, either didn’t quite fit the bill or were snapped up before we could make an offer. As of this week, however, we’re breathing a little easier. We’re certainly still looking - because we know the business is there – but we’re glad to welcome a new addition to the digital team in our Toronto office.

Given that many of you already know this individual, I won’t tax your patience. His name is Collin Douma. His blog is Radical Trust. And his experience, depth of knowledge, passion for digital, support for the social media community, and portfolio of work speak for themselves.

Both David and I are pretty chuffed to be able to bring his skills to bear on behalf of our clients – despite his dubious cultural addictions.

Welcome to the team, Collin.

You guys might also be aware that Collin became a Dad yesterday… heckuva week, I’d say! Congrats to both him and his wife on the new arrival.

Collin is a great catch for H&K Brendan. Jones, Douma, Hodgson. That’s a pretty good lead off batting order. Congrats!
