Digital agency The1stMovement (T1M), which works with a diverse range of clients from Cisco to Women of Wrestling, has welcomed production specialist Chris Fisher as its new Digital Producer in its Denver office.
With a decade’s worth of industry experience including a lengthy tenure at Portland-based digital shop Emerge Interactive, Fisher has evolved from project management and web/app development to a more versatile, in-depth position as a digital producer and QA analyst.
According to Fisher, who will be based in T1M’s Denver office, having hybrid skill sets and insights will prove beneficial as he assumes his post at the agency. “I often recognize details that an average producer or project manager may not see or consider,” he says. “Working closely with developers has given me perspectives on better approaches to managing assets and deliverables. I try to ask the questions that may not seem important at the time, but will be crucial to success down the road. Identifying those potential issues sooner rather than later helps a project run more smoothly.”
Prior to T1M, Fisher applied his talents to projects for a variety of notable brands and organizations including Nike, The Home Depot, Mercedes-Benz, Bridgestone, Microsoft and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. With a career spanning QA, analytics, production and client services, Fisher adds that his varied background will help inform his new, agile role at T1M. “My experience affords me the capability to balance analytics and empathy while learning new approaches to projects. Possessing critical thinking that embraces all facets of a project – from internal, external and personal perspectives – gives me a solid foundation to start with and allows me to put extra focus on learning how T1M operates.”
According to T1M’s CEO Ming Chan, Fisher’s digital acumen and ability to balance multiple roles makes him an ideal fit for the Digital Producer position. “Chris’s ability to effectively manage projects for clients large and small is evident from his previous experience, but what distinguished him from all the other candidates is his keen ability to communicate, both with internal team and with external clients. It also doesn’t hurt that he has great hair.”
