Prior to Isobar, Butler was Senior Vice President of Roundarch and was instrumental in driving the growth of that business, leading to the agency’s sale to Aegis Media in 2012. Earlier in his career, Butler led the financial services practice at Razorfish, building on his many years as a CIO and as a software engineer.
