Douglas Shaw and Associates Announces Executive Additions

Douglas Shaw And AssociatesFull-service fundraising and communications agency Douglas Shaw and Associates (DSA), which will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this October, recently announced two new hires as part of its ongoing effort to provide its clients with top-notch talent and cutting-edge solutions.

According to the agency’s announcement last week, Brianna Barrier Wetherbee is taking the reins as DSA's new Creative Director, and Curt Weigel joins the staff as Senior Vice President of Client Services. 

“Helping our clients achieve superior results has been the hallmark of Douglas Shaw and Associates since our founding nearly 20 years ago,” said Douglas Shaw, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DSA.  “Curt and Brie – with their highly successful and solutions-oriented backgrounds – demonstrate our unrivaled commitment to providing our clients with proven strategy, creative, execution, analytics and client services.”

Brianna Barrier Wetherbee joins DSA with 15 years of experience as a consultant, strategist, creative director, and writer. She brings a well-rounded knowledge of multiple communications disciplines and platforms, including direct mail, mid- to major-donor strategies, digital space, innovative gaming, and expert analytics.

Prior to joining DSA, Wetherbee proved to be instrumental in helping nonprofit clients – including Insight for Living, Wycliffe Bible Translators, Moody Bible Institute, Dallas Theological Seminary, and others – raise more than $500 million.

“I am deeply committed to share the mission of every client I serve, standing beside them to achieve the fundraising goals needed to do their important, life-changing work,” said Wetherbee. “It is my great privilege to join Douglas Shaw and Associates in providing innovative and effective fundraising services. I look forward to continuing a wonderful legacy of partnership with the clients we serve, as well as an exciting future together.”
