Chestnut Ridge, NY (January 22, 2014) — MC2, a leading brand experience and face-to-face marketing organization, is pleased to announce that Neal Foard has joined the company as Senior Vice President, Experience Design Director.
Foard, 52, will lead the company's experience design efforts based in their newly established Los Angeles office.
