Now I am not what anyone, particularly those who know me, would call a sensitive, emotional or coddling guy.
However, in promoting Aimee to the position of Vice-President of 76design, I really shared her excitement.
Three years ago, Aimee was the first person I hired in my now five year career at Thornley Fallis & 76design. So (and not to sound condescending) I take pride in her success and the contribution she has made to our firm since joining us in 2004.
Her leadership has really been a driving force in 76design’s growth, particularly over the past 18 months and she will be a key element of the continued success of Thornley Fallis & 76design going forward.
Below is the email message that I sent out to staff earlier today announcing her well-deserved promotion.
On behalf of Joe and Alex, I would like to announce the appointment of Aimee Deziel to Vice-President of 76design.Aimee has been with us for close to 3 years and was the first hire I made with the firm, so of course I am particularly excited for Aimee and very proud of her success.
We have a great team that is consistently delivering better and better work, and except for the odd March Meltdown, has fun along the way. This is resulting in more work from existing clients and regularly winning new assignments from new clients in new sectors.Aimee Deziel has been a very big and very important part of our success and growth. She is a very smart, talented, passionate, creative and dedicated individual that brings a lot of enthusiasm to both the work we do and our office environment.Originally hired on the TF side, Aimee’s advertising background eventually led her to start getting involved in more and more of 76design’s creative projects.Last year, we formally transitioned her fully to 76design. Since then, she has been leading the design and creative team, and has been integral to 76design’s continuously growing reputation as a firm that does really creative and smart work, provides excellent service, and is great to work with.Today’s announcement of Aimee’s appointment to Vice-President of 76design not only recognizes the role she is already playing, but is an indication from Joe, Alex and I, as well as Brett and Steve, that we believe her and her leadership are key to the ongoing and future success of not only 76design, but the entire firm.Congratulations Aimee, you have worked hard, you have been successful and you definitely deserve this!
