Former Doner and Wieden + Kennedy exec Robert Palmer joins Fuhu to build internal agency

Rob Palmer

Robert Palmer has been named chief creative officer at Fuhu where he will be responsible for building a creative team to support the firm’s growth.

In this newly created role, Palmer will build an internal agency that focuses on both product specific creative executions as well as branded initiatives. He will lead both the traditional and digital advertising strategy.

His appointment comes as Fuhu continues to expand its portfolio of hardware and software enabled digital experiences and solutions. The company recently appointed Doug Woo as chief operating officer and Keith Neva as vice president of sales.

Of the appointment, Palmer said: “Fuhu is breaking new ground in the family technology space and I am psyched to have the opportunity to help them craft their story. Building an in-house agency is the purest way to create work that really captures the soul of the company.”

Palmer has held roles at Wieden + Kennedy, Goodby, and Razorfish. Over the span of his career, he has worked with brands including Apple, Coca-Cola, and ESPN.

Fuhu is the creator of the nabi tablet, an Android tablet built for kids. It was named Inc. Magazine’s ‘#1 Fastest Growing Company in America’ in both 2013 and 2014.
