He really gets us and I look forward to him helping lead and shape the kind of work of that makes Heat, Heat,” said Steve Stone, chief creative officer of Heat. “More importantly, he’s open and excited to help us define what this crazy new thing with Deloitte will be.” “Take the creative legacy and stellar culture that’s been long established at Heat then add the horsepower that Deloitte brings — you’ve got a modern, unstoppable mashup of advertising and consulting. To be chosen to join the San Francisco team in this role, at this time, is an absolute honor” said Elm. Congrats on the hire.
