It certainly has been a busy start to 2023 for Newbridge Marketing Group!
Fresh on the heels of being named to the Chief Marketer 200 in December – for the sixth straight year, no less – NMG has started the new year with a bang with the addition of two marketing stalwarts to our senior leadership team: Dan Brice and Jason Colvin.
Dan, a lifelong Chicagoan, joins NMG as VP, Business Development, having most recently worked at United Entertainment Group, where he had served as SVP, Brand Experience, since 2017.
Throughout his 25-year career in experiential and event marketing, Dan has led award-winning campaigns in the B2B and B2C space for a diverse portfolio of brands such as The Hershey Company, KFC, GM, Lowe’s, JPMorgan Chase, eBay and PwC’s CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion.
“I am so excited to get started with the Newbridge team,” said Brice. “NMG has all the ingredients for continued success: tremendous staff doing impactful work with strong leadership driving a great culture. I can’t wait to bring NMG’s best-in-class marketing services to my network.”
“We are thrilled to add an outstanding marketer to the Newbridge Marketing Group team in Dan Brice,” added TJ Nolan, NMG Senior Partner. “Dan is a brilliant, creative and well-connected leader who brings invaluable experience and counsel to our clients and our internal team—especially during this period of rapid growth for NMG.”
Dan will remain Chicago-based and lead a business development team responsible for offering brands insights, strategic thinking, creative problem solving and best-in-class activation.
When in the Chicago area, keep an eye out for Dan coaching his three sons in any number of sports. Or keep an ear out for his alter ego, DJ D-Brice, often spotted spinning records at local festivals and charity events.
Meanwhile, Jason has been named NMG’s newly created VP, Strategy & Marketing. Previously a Senior Director at RedPeg Marketing, working with many of the experiential agency’s global and national clients such as Amazon, AT&T, GEICO, Microsoft, NBA and Niantic beginning in 2011.
“The team at NMG already produces excellent work across experiential, college/Gen Z, research, and recruitment, staffing, and talent solutions each one fueling tremendous growth,” noted Colvin. “I look forward to contributing to even smarter solutions and delivering them to our terrific brand partners.”
“We are so pleased to add Jason to the NMG team,” explained Steve Schubert, NMG’s co-founder and Senior Partner. “Jason is a smart, strategic and savvy leader who brings with him a unique background as a scientist–turned-marketer able to truly harness both the art and the science of marketing for all our clients.”
A lifelong resident of the DMV, Jason will continue to be based in the Washington, D.C. metro area, and will lead NMG’s client brand strategy, data and analytics, strategic business development, agency brand, marketing and sales operations.
“We could not be more pleased to add two outstanding marketers, and better yet, two outstanding people, to our roster as we dive headfirst into our 19th year generating joy through experiences for everyone,” added Schubert. “Dan and Jason are bright, resourceful and well-connected leaders who bring a wealth of experience along with a passion for doing great work. With NMG doubling in size over the past year, their experience and counsel will be invaluable—for both clients and our team.”
Please join us in welcoming these two to the NMG team!
