Prolific is kicking off 2015 with an exciting announcement. We’re thrilled to welcome two new executives, Isaac Newton and Anne Sophie Hurst, to our San Francisco office as Vice President of Business Development and Managing Director SF, respectively. Anne Sophie and Isaac’s arrival comes at a time of enormous growth for us, and signals a very prolific start to the new year.
Veterans of the San Francisco area, the two have spent the last seven years working together at Fluid, a top e-commerce agency located in SF and New York, and bring with them a wealth of expertise within the digital commerce space.
While at Fluid, Newton served as Global Vice President of Business Development and was responsible for managing important partnerships for the company, while Hurst acted as Fluid’s Senior Client Services Director. Hurst helped Fluid grow overall from 40 to 150 people while Newton played an integral role in developing Fluid’s New York presence with partners and clients.
Both Isaac and Anne Sophie wore many hats and took on a variety of responsibilities while working with Fluid. Specifically they helped establish successful partnerships with clients in multiple verticals ranging from high fashion, to branded manufacturers, and pure play etailers. The two have built a close working relationship with each other and are excited to have moved on to Prolific Interactive as a team.
“Because we’ve worked together for so long, we have an amazing chemistry together,” Isaac says. “We know each other’s strengths and weaknesses and and are always looking out for one another.”
“After all this time together, we actually consider each other work spouses,” Isaac jokes.
Isaac and Anne Sophie decided to make the move to Prolific after realizing the importance of mobile in the e-commerce world and seeking out a company that could offer specific expertise in that field. Prolific’s growing experience in the mobile world sparked their initial interest, but unique company culture, welcoming team members and an abundance of office dogs convinced them to make the move.
Prolific welcomes Anne Sophie and Isaac to the team with confidence in their ability to expand the San Francisco office and spearhead relationships with future partners for Prolific.
CEO Bobby Emamian says, “We are thrilled that Anne Sophie and Isaac have decided to join the Prolific team, and know that the growth they were able to achieve with Fluid has afforded them the experience they need to take Prolific to the next level as well.”
COO Dan Healy adds, “The addition of Isaac and Anne Sophie to Prolific’s San Francisco office enables our team to have a stronger presence on the West Coast, and adds an incredible amount of experience in the retail and ecommerce space. As we continue to grow, our focus is to add the absolute best people in order to compliment our current team and benefit our partners. Isaac and Anne Sophie are exactly that and we are thrilled to have them.”
