Demetrios Kontizas has been promoted to vice president of Technology at Mirum, the digital agency aligned with JWT (soon to be Wunderman Thompson).
Konitzas will take over as lead for the San Diego office and all technology disciplines from both that operation and Salt Lake City now fall under his remit.
He joined the agency three-plus years ago as director of front end development.
"Over the past 6 months, in the absence of this role, Demetrios has stepped up when I needed someone to step up,” said Amanda Seaford, who joined Mirum as U.S. president in July.
She added that Kontizas “has managed to build relationships across disciplines when we need people to work together rather than in silos. He has managed to deliver when we need to prove more than ever we can deliver with success. Demetrios has proven that he has the drive, passion, commitment and leadership necessary to take on this challenge. I'm confident he will help us build a great Agency."
