Isobar's iProspect search engine marketing firm expands its national footprint with an office in San Francisco planned for July.
The office will reside alongside Carat Fusion, Ammo Marketing and Freestyle Interactive, all Isobar agencies in the United States. Brian Kaminski takes over as managing director of the new outpost.
For its part, Chicago business-to-business agency Slack Barshinger will open an office in the Palo Alto, CA, area. The agency will move talent from Chicago and hire personnel from Silicon Valley to staff an office serving eBay's PayPal unit. Slack Barshinger is agency of record for PayPal.
Jay A. Fiore, former head of marketing at eBay Business, was named vice president, partner and general manager of Slack Barshinger's West Coast office.
