FALMOUTH — TideSmart Global LLC announced, the company has hired four key members of the organization to accommodate an expanding client base including two new global clients. The announcement was made by TideSmart Global’s President and CEO Stephen Woods.
TideSmart Global, previously recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in the United States, encompasses seven entities: EMG3, Promerica Health, Sumerian Sports, Viridescence Marketing, Confidential Consumer, TideSmart Logistics, and Magnetix Digital. Last year, the company opened its first West Coast office, TideSmart West, located in San Francisco’s Financial District.
“2017 into early 2018 has seen a period of growth unlike anything I can recall in the history of TideSmart Global,” Woods said. “With our expansion to the West Coast last year and the addition of two new global clients already this year, we needed to expand our personnel in some key areas to not only service those clients but to maintain that growth. Except for perhaps the day we signed our very first client 15 years ago, I can’t think of a time when I was more excited about the future of TideSmart.”
Robert Brodeur was named TideSmart vice president of Client Engagement. Brodeur joins TideSmart from the Gigunda Group in Manchester, N.H., where he served in the role of general manager. At Gigunda, Brodeur oversaw strategy, agency culture, business development, and operational leadership of the agency, fostering relationships with brands such as Duracell, Pop-Tarts, Tide, Ben & Jerry’s, HP, Good Humor, and Activision.

Foss will initially join TideSmart’s West Coast agency, TideSmart West, before relocating to Maine.
Christine Campbell was named TideSmart vice president of Media.
