Adam explains that "during this time of profound change, in society and in our industry, it's my huge privilege to join MMB. As a proudly independent creative company and one with an entrepreneurial, nimble maker culture, I think we are incredibly well placed to give clients what they need most, versus large matrixed corporate agencies and networks.

Swann is recognized in the industry as one of the leading entrepreneurial business builders in marketing. Most recently as EVP Strategy Director at Hill Holliday, Swann was responsible for the driving brand, digital and content strategy across the agency's premiere accounts including Bank of America and Boar's Head.
Swann joins MMB's latest hire, Executive Creative Director, David Register. Register, a boomerang employee, was one of MMB's original creative forces, returning to the agency after spending 15 years at Arnold in its Boston office. Together, Swann and Register mark MMB's commitment to evolving the agency and in progressive, modern agency leadership, with a team of Creative and Strategist at the helm. Both will report directly into legendary Co-Founders Fred Bertino and Jamie Mambro.
Fred Bertino notes that "as brands grapple with the need to transform and remain relevant we believe it is the modern partnership of strategy and creative that is the key underpinning of those engaging creative ideas that propel clients' growth. The addition of Adam and David to the heart of our leadership team has been nothing short of inspiring for us, and for our clients. It has streamlined our ability to deliver strategically led creative ideas across every medium. It's an exciting time for our agency."

Register is also a co-founder of Truth-Bullet Film/Production Company and an accomplished award-winning writer and photographer.
David is quick to add that "with our industry demanding us to work faster and faster, time for strategic planning is constantly being sacrificed. Right now, there's no more room, or time, for departments to function as they used to. It's really about getting the best creative, strategy and even production working together from the get-go."
