San Diego, CA — As the full-service marketing agency Red Door Interactive (RDI) continues on its growth trajectory, the company announces several C-suite promotions. This evolution will facilitate the agency’s expansion while creating opportunity for future growth and further integration.
With a focus on Transformational Marketing, RDI is aligning its services and positioning the company to respond to further business and client growth. The promotions allow for the opportunity to replicate on the successes RDI has experienced in Cross-Channel Marketing (CCM) through collaboration, productization, and innovation across delivery teams.

“This is an exciting time both for Red Door and our clients,” said CEO, Reid Carr. “Last year was a big year, built on our previous 15, so with this move, we’re re-aligning ourselves to plan for the next level, grow in tandem with our clients, and consistently provide them with the best full-service, integrated solutions that are needed for marketing today.”
Promotions are as follows:

  • Erika Werner, previously VP of Client Services is now Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), leading Business Development and Marketing.

  • Dennis Gonzales, previously VP of Operations is now Chief Operating Officer (COO), leading Accounting & Finance, Information Technology, Software Engineering, and Operations.

  • John Faris, previously VP of Cross-Channel Marketing is now President, leading Strategic Planning, Marketing Technology, and Creative while continuing oversight of CCM teams, including SEO, Paid & Earned Media, and Social Media.

  • Reid Carr maintains his position as Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

“I’m so proud of the progress we’ve made as a team over the 15 years that I have been at Red Door,” said CMO, Erika Werner. “I am so excited about this team and our energy. The fact that we promoted John, Dennis, and me from within -- John and Dennis each with over a decade at the company -- speaks volumes when it comes to our collective growth, mutual respect, and long-standing client relationships. We are truly driven by the clients we serve, with empathy for the customers they serve, adding value to every dimension of the relationship.”
RDI continues to make deliberate decisions that promote healthy, strategic growth to remain independent from holding companies and therefore better serve clients’ evolving needs. Their ability to use data to inform solutions enables the full-service agency to stay ahead of the innovation curve and find new ways to adapt.
