SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Noted user experience, product and digital marketing expert Garrick Schmitt is joining Infogain to lead its experience transformation division, Revel.

Revel pairs human-centered design thinking with Infogain’s platform engineering, enabling customers to build new connections, navigate the unpredictable and redefine products and services that transform the future.
“Garrick Schmitt is one of our industry’s most innovative minds, has digital in his DNA and will accelerate the robust solutions that today’s top businesses demand,” said Vikas Kamran, Corporate Vice President, Digital for Infogain. “He’s a builder at heart and has the proven performance in product design and marketing at scale that make him the perfect leader for the experiences and engineering we’re bringing to the global digital marketplace.”

Schmitt brings 25 years of experience to Infogain and its growing client roster. Following an early start in product during the dotcom era, he built Razorfish’s User Experience practice into a powerful force of designers, strategists and engineers, ultimately serving as the North America Lead for Service Innovation.
Most recently, Schmitt served as Executive Vice President for EssenceMediacom, where he scaled the company’s Experience practice and, notably as part of Google’s global digital media agency of record, infused creativity, innovation and data-driven thinking into the company’s digital marketing strategies.
