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!
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.

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

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.

Except for the FedEx guy. Sorry, FedEx guy.
