Vancouver-based digital shop Pound & Grain has announced that former Dare senior VP  Sandy Fleischer will join the agency as managing partner.

The move reunites Fleischer with Pound & Grain’s founding partners Jackson Murphy, Graham MacInnes and Tara Steinberg. The foursome previously worked together at Vancouver agency Fjord West.

“Sandy is one of the top digital talents anywhere,” said Tara Steinberg, managing partner at Pound & Grain, in a statement. “We want to be the best digital agency in the country. Hiring Sandy increases our speed in getting there, as he brings big strategic thinking, entrepreneurship and hustle to our growing list of clients.”
