Brian Rodriguez Director - Creative Development at Sizmek

From the moment I started working with Todd and managing him it was clear the man had talent, and wasn’t afraid to step out of the confines of his role to help clients and satisfy their expressed need. As an Art Director/Producer at Sizmek it was key that he could manage multiple projects, keep things on track and occasionally step in with design expertise when needed.
