Every agency uses "collaboration" as a buzzword, but we live it. Our office environment not only creates teamwork, it requires it. Everyone is within eyeshot...and earshot. Our clients also benefit from aggressive cross-training and continuing education mandates. Each member of our media staff is an expert in cross-channel media and is required to attend regular industry seminars to enrich their knowledge. We've removed layers of communication so that our clients work directly with the team members that do the work.
Unusual? Maybe. Effective? Absolutely!
Founder & CEO
Although most people know Rick as our founder and CEO, we think his business card should read "Fearless Leader." After all, it takes a brave soul to defy convention and create a company based on innovative ideas. Rick helps clients realize their true marketing potential through creative, often nontraditional media solutions. From local start-ups to some of the country's most prestigious brands, smart clients have been following Rick's lead since 1984.
Director of Media Services
Only one thing stands between Jeff and a career as a professional golfer; his 15 handicap. Lucky for us, his flair for media planning is a completely different story. Jeff has been turning clients' most difficult challenges into winning media programs since his start at the agency in 1990. His expertise, candidness and integrity may not improve his golf score, but these qualities give his clients an invaluable edge.
Director of Financial Services
What happens when you hire a drummer with a background in computer programming? You get one exceptional CFO. Scott's vast experience in accounting and finance allow him to anticipate controllers' and business managers' needs. His meticulous nature and laser-like focus keep McCulloch+Company on track. And everyone loves Scott's ability to make the media process worry-free -- without missing a beat.
Everyone needs a "go-to guy" and Neil is definitely ours. He can wrangle the wireless network, whip out a PowerPoint presentation and fix the copier -- all without breaking a sweat. But his real skills lie in targeting any audience with uncanny efficiency and effectiveness -- especially in the digital realm. We're proud to say that Neil has been with us since 1998, and thankful that his "go-to" is always above and beyond.
If you hear someone whistling, or singing around the McCulloch+Company office, it's probably our "other Scott." That sunny disposition comes in handy during negotiations, as does his experience in newspaper and print advertising sales. When he's not maximizing value for our client's advertising campaigns, you will either find him hanging out with his wife and daughter or performing Shakespeare on a local stage. And when it comes to planning and managing print, broadcast and online marketing campaigns, he makes sure they perform well, too.
To say that Drew has a balanced view of marketing is an understatement. He has a tremendous breadth of experience from his work at leading agencies in the Southeast, major brands and in media sales. Drew’s insight spans all media channels and a wide range business categories. Add fierce negotiation skills and you have a bulldog who stops at nothing to help our clients succeed. With a degree advertising from the University of Tennessee, maybe “bulldog” isn’t the best choice of words.
Digital Media Manager
Andrea continues to surprise us as a wise media professional masquerading as a Millennial. She skillfully spearheads all of our clients’ digital campaigns, ad serving, analysis and reporting. Her grasp of the digital media landscape and customer path to acquisition makes her an invaluable resource for clients. Her passion for community issues and unexpected sense of humor make her an irreplaceable part of our team.
