Fischer is the fourth person to serve as the 55-year-old agency’s chief executive. He replaces Mike Lescarbeau, who will now step into the role of executive chairman.

Previously, Fischer served as president of Carmichael Lynch. He rejoined the agency four years ago after serving as chief executive of fellow Minneapolis agency Space150. According to his LinkedIn, he worked in account planning at Carmichael Lynch from 2003-2008.

“I’m honored to lead Carmichael Lynch and continue the energy we’ve built over the last few years,” said Fischer in a statement. “I am thankful for the team that has made this agency what it is today – a people-centric organization focused on business, culture and great creative work. We’ve made collaboration and integration pivotal to our offering. This unique approach is how brands can transcend the rational and become emotionally meaningful and become part of, and shape, culture.”

According to Carmichael Lynch, the agency has experienced “four years of consecutive, double-digit revenue growth” since Fischer rejoined. Over the past few years, the agency has picked up clients including US Bank and Truvia. Other clients include Subaru and Jack Link’s.
