ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2009) - The Morrison Agency (www.morrisonagency.com) announced today the hiring of award-winning creative talent Eddie Snyder (www.eddiesnyder.com) as the agency's senior VP-chief creative officer.

He joins The Morrison Agency after a brief stint at Partners & Napier. Prior to that, he served as executive VP-chief creative officer of Fitzgerald + CO.

"I joined The Morrison Agency because it's the perfect model of what today's thinking company should be," said Snyder. "They totally get it, and they've totally got it -- a real world approach, savvy strategic thinking and convergence that is re-shaping our industry with the total integration of fresh digital/interactive smarts. Combine that with Bob Morrison's bold vision of where he wants to take the agency, and it will be an exciting place to be and grow."
