Steve Fogarty

Director Talent Acquisition Futures, adidas Group

At adidas I am tasked with building a world class talent acquisition function, a kicking talent brand, Web 2.0 recruitment strategy, and whatever and wherever else the twists, turns, clicks and crashes of the Wild Digital West takes me. Prior to adidas I spent almost seven years at Waggener Edstrom Worldwide. My role was to develop and implement integrated strategies to attract key talent. I served as a digital “trend spotter” for the agency’s staffing function as well as played a key role in advancing our talent relationship capabilities with CRM and Web 2.0/social networking strategies. I spent the first two years of my career on the agency side.  The volume and intensity of agency recruitment laid the foundation for where I am today.
