David Fausel began his career in the Bay Area, moving to NYC a few years later to hone his skills at Weiss Stagliano Partners, Wieden + Kennedy, Ogilvy & Mather, HORN, and other leading agencies. For over 20 years, David has led digital marketing strategies. Some of his clients have included Nike, American Express, Saturn, Mercedes-Benz, and Diageo. David's arrival marks the next phase in the growth of our NYC office. We are excited about the leadership and experience he brings to Liquid—and we look forward to the additional expertise and service we can now provide our clients on the East Coast.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW.

How did you originally hear/learn about Liquid? 

I have known about Liquid for awhile and respected the agency’s work and perspective. Also, I had a friend who worked for Liquid in the past. When I saw a LinkedIn ad for a Client Director position in the NYC office I reached out to apply and I am very happy to be here now.

Why did you want to join the company?
I have spent my career helping big companies act like startups and startups act like big companies. That is in the DNA of Liquid.

What do you hope to accomplish here (this year and in the long term)? 

Build Liquid’s presence east of the Mississippi to be the equal (maybe even bigger?) of our West Coast operations.

What is the last book you have read?
I Wear the Black Hat by Chuck Klosterman.

What is your favorite drink (alcoholic or otherwise)?
Coca Cola and Cherry Slurpee.

What is the best advice you have ever received and from whom?

My father encouraged me to not get serious about a career right out of college, to enjoy myself for a few years, live somewhere else and try different things. I moved to the Bay Area and worked in a variety of different roles which gave me invaluable experience.

What are your favorite activities outside of work? 

I have played Ultimate Frisbee for almost 30 years, including a silver medal at World Championships. Trying to keep my 2 daughters entertained.

    I am very excited about what we can accomplish on the East Coast with you on board. And I very much hope we’ll get a chance to play some Ultimate Frisbee – maybe we can start an industry league?

    Thanks everyone. Very excited about the opportunity. Unfortunately I am not sure my knees can support more ultimate.

      Sure, blame it on the knees. It’s okay, we can settle for disk golf. ;) Welcome aboard!

    Hi David,

    Hope the intros will be useful in launching Liquid NYC!

    Additionally, they will be valuable additional ‘tools’ for Liquid with all of its current and prospective clients, locally to globally.

    Best,

    Greg
