VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA – (February 22, 2021) – VoltSafe Inc. continues to grow its full-time team with a key addition to its marketing department. VoltSafe is pleased to announce it has landed Rich Koh as the company’s Director, Creative & Brand. With years of graphic design and brand experience within his portfolio, VoltSafe continues to build strong momentum going forward with this strategic addition.
Koh’s graphic design career started off at Best Buy Canada Inc. in design and production of extensive print collateral, retail signage and its flagship business driver, the weekly flyer. From there, Koh branched into opportunities working in the apparel business with retailers Arson & Orb and Please Mum. His signature work began as he moved on to a long and successful career with the BC Lions Football Club, creating agency-quality work in-house. His achievements included the production and development of numerous memorable campaigns, uniform re-brands and marketing collateral for nearly a decade.
