Whether encouraging her client to push towards differentiating concepts or her family to follow her up a mountain path discovered on AllTrails,  Anne sees the potential in everything and everyone, uncovering the deeper underlying stories and making connections that activate growth. Whether throwing themed parties or fulfilling her role as “baby whisperer”, she thrives when her house is full of kids, dogs and dinner guests.

Her sense of humor and deep connections to her team make trips on even the bumpiest roads exciting and full of laughter.

She is gifted at building businesses and relationships through a lens of joyful possibility, whether up front facilitating, behind the glass listening or strategically connecting data that leads to action. Seeing the big picture just comes naturally.  In her free time Ali uses her amazing eye for color to brighten lives and spaces and planning road trips for George and the girls that lead to off-the-beaten-path adventure.

Mark strategically assesses needs, provides resources and offers unwavering support to empower the team. A calm voice in the middle of any unexpected technology or personnel storm, his quiet one-liners bring our high energy team safely back to shore. “Are you hungry? What can I get you?”

The Mathlete 

Across her 20 years in research, Katie has never met a problem that a good excel spreadsheet can’t solve.  With a love for all things analytical, Katie enjoys digging into the data to excavate the underlying story and then build it into a compelling and concise final structure. Katie enjoys long walks on the beach and snuggling up with a good power tool on the weekends.  So don’t be surprised if you hear she is constructing a playhouse or running electricity to a bunkbed  for her three girls.

The Connector 

Allegra drives to critical priorities that shape research narratives, sees the glass as half full, and consistently shares that optimism with her team.

Carrie is also out ahead searching for “what’s next” in research.  Halloween is Carrie’s year-round passion, with a 6’ Frankenstein still in her foyer on Memorial Day as she rushes out the door to cheer on her boys at baseball or martial arts.

Her ability to anticipate needs and deliver with excellence is foundational. Cheryl speaks multiple languages including Seinfeld and Paw Patrol, and spends her evenings playing games of strategy and chance such as Candyland and “what food did I just step in?”.

The Challenger 

Phillip enjoys conceptual puzzles and is adept at finding solutions, seeing the possibilities in complex situations by challenging assumptions. With an insatiable curiosity as his guide, he jumps at the opportunity to incorporate new discoveries into time-tested wisdom. Just ask him how his young kids show him new spots to throw dinner food in the kitchen that he never knew existed. When not nerding out about brand distinctiveness or ad testing, you can find him getting captivated by a well-crafted commercial, wrestling with his boys, or going for an outdoor run.
