Opus Expands Agency Leadership with Hire of SVP, Business Solutions
PORTLAND, Ore. – June 6, 2019 –We are delighted to announce the addition of Brent Turner to the Opus Agency team. In this newly created Senior Vice President of Business Solutions role, Turner joins the Opus leadership team with a charter of pushing innovation for clients and business growth for the agency.
Over the last 22 years, Turner has built his diverse skillset around a unique mix of experiences. After his early days successfully surviving two startup-to-IPO adventures as well as founding and selling his own agency, Turner went on to lead boutique and large advertising agencies, serve as the Chief Digital Officer at MIT, and, most recently, lead Cramer’s transformation into a global brand experience agency.
“I’m passionate about being part of the rapid rise of new trends, strategies, and investments in the events and experiential marketing industry,” says Turner. “Opus, with our client portfolio of the world’s most innovative brands, lives on the forefront of true business innovation. At Opus, my simple mission is to help our clients continue to bring technology, content, and data innovations into their events and experiential programs.”
Throughout his career, Turner has delivered first-ever initiatives for global technology, healthcare, and financial service brands, including Bank of America, Fidelity, Johnson and Johnson, IBM, Quest Diagnostics, Siemens, and UPS.
“Brent has industry-renown experience in unleashing the power of full-service, creative-led teams to grow long-term executive-level relationships with Fortune 100 brands,” says Opus president, Jeff Stelmach, “This new role is exciting as it supports our mission to evolve into a full-service, creative-led agency, and I can’t think of a better person to take it on than Brent.”
Working from Opus Agency’s new East Coast presence, Turner will work alongside with recently hired Chief Creative Officer, John Trinanes, to establish a Boston office. The East Coast, and especially the Northeast market, is a rapidly growing frontier for both our client roster and our teams. By establishing a Boston office, Opus will soon capture a new opportunity to bring Opus closer to key East Coast client partnerships.
