As creative agencies continue to expand the deployment of their ideas beyond traditional paid media campaigns into the worlds of digital and experiential marketing, one of Washington, D.C.’s most recognized communications agencies, Elevation, Ltd., announced it has tapped industry creative and marketing consulting veteran Alan Schulman to serve as Senior Strategic Communications and Creative Advisor.

For the past five years, Schulman served as Chief Creative Officer of Deloitte Digital US, previously holding the same position at SapientNitro NY. He is widely considered a subject matter expert in digital creative, content and experiential marketing and was named a Creative All Star by MediaPost.

“Alan has been a great friend, confidant and collaborator for decades. I could not be happier to have this opportunity to once again champion ideas, inspire thinking and galvanize positive action together. There is a certain magic that happens when we roll up our sleeves, and our goal is to seek global impact in various sectors and initiatives including the World Economic Forum, global environment, human rights and global health. The entire team is excited,” said Jimmy Learned, President and Managing Director of Elevation.

In his advisory role, Schulman will further propel the agency’s “Ideas that Elevate” strategies across multiple channels and digital experiences for both private and public sector organizations, issue advocacy and global human rights and health initiatives.

“Elevation has been a powerful force for creativity inside the Beltway and beyond,” said Schulman. “The power of their Hispanic, multicultural and traditional campaigns to elevate and drive action as well as results for government agencies, commercial brands and issue advocacy has made them a proven leader in both strategic communications and creativity. I am honored to be joining this great team and, in turn, working with the organizations they serve.”

Schulman has served as a co-Dean of the Creative Academy for the Cannes Lions Festival, as a member of the Board of Directors of the American Marketing Association NY, and a Faculty Member in Content Marketing for the Association of National Advertisers School of Marketing. He has also served on the Creative Review Committee of the AdCouncil and the 4A’s Creative Technology Committee and is a current voting member of the Recording Academy (Grammys). He frequently lectures on Digital Storytelling at Northwestern, Rutgers University, and General Assembly in New York City.
