CHICAGO, September 18, 2019 – Bounteous, a leading insights-driven digital experience agency, today announced the appointment of Mike Brown as the agency’s first Chief Client Officer.

In the newly-created position, Brown plays a critical role in leading Bounteous’ client management team across the agency’s digital brand experience suite. Brown previously served as president of Bounteous Canada and is the former Chief Growth Officer for ICF Olson and president of its Canadian subsidiary.
“Mike has a rich history of helping companies like Bounteous scale client service, strategy, delivery, and marketing services while creating value for clients, so we believe he is an invaluable addition to our executive leadership team,” said Keith Schwartz, Bounteous co-founder and CEO. “We are excited about the strategic vision he brings to our clients, and his support of our steadfast growth at Bounteous.”

In concert with Brown’s new role, Bounteous created an integrated Client organization to support the agency’s ability to provide more strategic advice to clients and deliver broad, integrated solutions to its expanding client roster.
“I’m honored to have the opportunity to lead our Client organization and join our executive leadership in moving Bounteous forward by focusing on helping our customers realize value through our services, co-innovation initiatives, and holistic support,” said Brown. “Our talent is second-to-none, and I’m excited to work with our teams on the businesses of each of our clients, as well as growing both our talent and long-term client relationships.”
