David Maharaj has been hired as digital service agency BLITZ's VP of technology, a recently-created position, said Ivan Todorov, the company's CEO.

Maharaj will help BLITZ expand its digital capability for clients, including expanding content management, mobile and analytics offerings, Todorov said.

“We're growing pretty fast as an organization and the demands of what our clients were asking us to do for them has expanded tremendously,” Todorov said, adding that Maharaj will help BLITZ expand its video offerings to clients. “We have established a very strong competence in user experience.” BLITZ's clients include Dell, Red Bull, Disney, Naked and Microsoft, according to the company website.

Maharaj was chosen for the position, in part, because of his strong background in technology, Todorov said. Prior to joining BLITZ, he worked at Razorfish in San Francisco and FOX Digital Media in Los Angeles.

"Part of the reason I hired him is that he brings a lot of big-picture planning into the organization,” Todorov said.

In the new position, Maharaj has one direct report, Noah Gedrich, BLITZ's senior director of technology. Maharaj will report directly to Todorov. The team, in total, has nearly 30 members, Todorov said. He added that, at this time, there's no plan to reorganize the team as a whole.

Prior to Maharaj's hire, BLITZ interviewed about two dozen people for the position, Todorov said. BLITZ did not rely on a recruiter, but did interview internally for the position, he said.
