Hart Welcomes New Leadership, Bolsters Communications Offering


Jeff Lutz Brings Modern Approach to Corporate Communications, Social and Content Marketing

Toledo, Ohio, August 15, 2019 – Hart, one of Ohio’s largest independent marketing and advertising agencies, recently welcomed Jeff Lutz as Vice President, Corporate Communications and Content. Lutz, a communications strategist and innovator with experience in designing communications programs that deliver business results, further bolsters the agency’s strategic priority on expanding and modernizing its acclaimed service offerings.

A corporate communications professional with a deep background in strategy, especially for healthcare and technology businesses and enterprises, Lutz joins Hart from Airfoil, a public relations and digital marketing firm, where he served as vice president, client experience, and a member of Airfoil’s senior leadership team. Lutz also served as the managing director of public relations at a start-up integrated communications firm in Albany, New York, where he led crisis communications, media relations and business development initiatives, and counseled clients.

Having curated communications programs and strategies throughout his career, Lutz frequently has his finger on the pulse of evolving technologies and services that can add to the bottom line. He understands how to envelop a message that can influence and shape perception through his work in developing thought leadership and content platforms for executives and brands. As more organizations continue to reshuffle their communications and marketing efforts to best align with their business needs, this hiring further adds to Hart’s already impressive roster of integrated communications and marketing offerings.

“We’ve been searching for the right candidate for this role for some time,” said Mike Hart, President/CEO of Hart. “We knew we needed someone with expertise across communications disciplines who could add to our agency’s offerings. We have found that with Jeff, who embodies the ideal blend of passion, capability and culture that we were looking for.”

“Our clients are truly partners – and each deserves a unique blueprint of communications strategies and tactics that get results,” Lutz said. “I’m looking forward to working with our partners to help them tell their stories in impactful and creative ways.”
