Appointment unites the agency's digital and print spending activities under one reporting structure.

MediaVest USA hired Sarah Baehr, a veteran of Razorfish and OgilvyOne, as SVP, director of digital publishing solutions. The move unites the agency's digital and print spending activities under one reporting structure, according to Donna Speciale, president of investment and activation.

sarah"At some point, we will be very audience focused, more so than media focused," said Speciale. "Sarah's role is the next evolution of...this, to immerse digital and print as a holistic effort."

Baehr (pictured on the left) was VP of media and national media lead at Razorfish, heading up all of the agency's media spending activities. She left last January, not long after Publicis acquired the agency from Microsoft, and became associate partner for search and media at New Jersey-based Rosetta. While MediaVest is focused on leveraging individual publisher relationships, rather than the increasingly common ad exchange and network models, Baehr suggested the latter has a place in the agency's activities.

"The exchange model is a place where you can leverage scale and insight, and you can potentially gain from having a deeper relationship with publishers," Baehr said. "These major publishers have a wealth of information about how people consume content across platforms."

Baehr reports to Robin Steinberg, director of publisher investment and activation. She'll also be responsible for training MediaVest's print people in digital platforms.
