The first appointment is the naming of Charles Nowaczek to the position of Chief Operating Officer. In this role, Mr. Nowaczek is responsible for Epic Advertising’s global business operations, including product development, program management, Sales support, facilities and administration, and oversight of the organization’s strategic and tactical initiatives.

The second appointment was the naming of Young Kim to the position of Senior Vice President of Finance. In this role, Mr. Kim is responsible for all aspects of the company’s accounting and finances. Under his direction, he has overseen the group’s improvements in operational, budget and process efficiencies, the implementation of new projects and the support of the company’s international expansion. Previously, Mr. Kim was the Vice President of Finance for the company, and has been with Epic since 2005. He is based in the Toronto, Canada office.
The two appointments further solidify Epic’s senior executive team following a successful 2008, and will provide further momentum to its prospects for further growth in 2009.
