David&Goliath Names Seema Miller Managing Partner, CSO
David Angelo, Founder and Chairman of independent creative agency David&Goliath (D&G), announced today the promotion of Seema Miller to Managing Partner, Chief Strategy Officer. Previously serving as Executive Director, Head of Planning at the agency, Miller will continue to report directly to Angelo and be responsible for leading strategic insights across the agency’s roster of clients and new business endeavors.
“I’ve always believed that an effective strategy is the blueprint to unlocking greatness. It starts with our name, David&Goliath. In two words and an ampersand, you know exactly what we do and what we stand for,” said Angelo. “Seema is the perfect example of someone who not only understands the importance of strategy but also has the unique ability to bring it to life across all facets of our clients’ brands, as well as our own. She’s passionate, relentless, and does it all with an infectious giggle.”
Since joining D&G in 2013, Miller has worked closely with the entire agency – especially the creative department – to put strategy at the forefront and implement a planning approach that comes from a place of truth. Miller’s key areas of focus include Kia Motors, driving the agency’s new business, and building new clients like Coca-Cola’s ZICO Coconut Water, hamburger chain Jack in the Box and project work for LG Mobile.
“What originally drew me to David&Goliath was its reputation as a phenomenal creative shop with great minds,” said Miller. “But what excited me was their commitment to strategy, not just to sell work but to get to truths that inspire great work.”
Prior to D&G, Miller was a part of the brand transformation team at JC Penney where she served as Head of Strategic Insights. Most of her nearly 20-year career was spent at notable agencies like Wieden+Kennedy and Leo Burnett. Miller was recently named to Business Insider’s list of the 36 Most Creative Women in Advertising (#24).
This marks yet another addition to the executive leadership team following the news last July of Colin Jeffery’s promotion to Chief Creative Officer and Brian Dunbar to President.
