business segments and the brand's digital/mobile experiences. Stoner will report to Britt Fero, chief strategy officer of Publicis Seattle. Most recently, Stoner was the founder of two startups:

upon my startup experience," said Stoner. "I am excited for the opportunity to help build a strategy group that understands and incorporates the speed and nature of today's lean startup culture and
business. To me, that means being able to react quicker to anticipate new platforms, new services, new businesses and new forms of interaction."
