Rockfish expanded into Cincinnati last summer tapping two local P&G execs, Dave Knox and Bryan Radtke, to help lead the Cincinnati branch. The company, based in Northwest Arkansas, is among Inc. 500's fastest growing companies. In Cincinnati, Rockfish now has seven employees in its Mt.

The company also has offices in Little Rock, Dallas and San Francisco.
OMMA named Rockfish a top agency among eight others including international players Wieden + Kennedy
"We are in great company with agencies such as W+K and SapientNitro that employ thousands of people. OMMA (part of Mediapost) is one of the most influential trade publications in marketing, advertising and online media," Knox added.
The Cincinnati office is working to add to Rockfish's prestigious kudos with its latest hire, creative director Chris Zieverink.
"Chris brings a deep experience in creative, having developed best-in-class work for clients such as Timberland, Hasbro, Southern Comfort, Nature Made, Walgreens and Pearle Vision. His work consistently pushes the boundaries, winning a number of key industry awards. In Cincinnati, Chris will build a team of copy directors, copywriters and art directors and designers in concept, design and execution," Knox said.
