I’m a dreamer. To me, there are no small ideas. Advertising professionals have a responsibility to bring our clients the best ideas possible. Strategies they have never considered. We challenge the status quo. That’s our role. That’s my role.
It’s great to be CEO when you are surrounded by an incredible team. Every day we are reshaping the agency model. Our business is a craft with a gentle mix of science. I get to bring people together to create great work for our clients. It’s the best job in the world.
I am grateful for the community that brought me here. Not just the Kansas City community, but the community of advertising and marketing professionals with which I’ve had the opportunity to learn from over the past 30 years.
When I think about the people who have entered my life, I feel honored to have known them. And I feel a responsibility to give back to the community that has given so much to me.
I believe in the future of advertising so I serve as VP Finance of The American Advertising Federation – KC, the Board of Governors of the Kansas City AAAAs, and am a member of the Helzberg Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program.
I see a world full of opportunity. And I’m looking for clients and potential employees willing to help us seek it out.
