The former partner of Woodruff Sweitzer brings experience and a fresh perspective to the female-owned advertising agency.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (March 4, 2019) — Steve Sweitzer, former Chief Creative Officer and partner of Woodruff Sweitzer, will serve as Creative Consultant at Hoot Design Company from March until May 2019.

Sweitzer’s primary roles will include overseeing all creative production, mentoring leadership on the growth of the agency and recruiting new business opportunities. He has worked with national brands such as Nissan, Reebok, Sony Playstation and Energizer, and has won many prestigious awards at the One Show, Cannes and the Clio Awards.

As brand ambassador, photographer and storyteller for clients Garmin International, Duluth Trading Company, LUMIX cameras and Eagle Creek Outfitters, Sweitzer tested and promoted products through social media, blog posts and expeditions. He recently completed a two-year trip around the world exploring 6 continents, 56 countries and countless cultural experiences using client products.
