Robert Sharp, CEO and President

Robert is the man with his name on the door and he takes that very seriously. As the agency principal and CEO he has his hands (and heart) in everything that we do, but he will be the first to admit “creative director” is the title he likes best. With a mind for creative thinking and guerilla marketing tactics, Robert is known for going well beyond the zones of traditional and digital media to get your message across. He is known for empowering his staff to be even better than they thought possible and the results are award winning campaigns for our clients. No matter the size of your budget or the length of your project, you will get a phone call from Robert just to check in and see how well you’re being taken care of. THAT is what sets this agency apart from the rest!
