President & Creative Director
Bob has nearly 20 years of corporate marketing and management, plus over 25 years of operating his own ad agency. Prior to relocating to Florida, he had founded an advertising agency in Massachusetts in 1982 which rose to become the largest in Central Massachusetts. The agency he founded in Florida in 1991 has become one of the largest in our five to six county area.
Prior to starting these agencies, Bob spent nearly eighteen years “on the client side” serving as marketing and sales promotion director for two Fortune 500 companies. He is an accomplished writer and has received numerous awards for his advertising and promotion efforts produced on behalf of his clients. His main roles at the agency are as Creative Director, writer and Major Accounts Client Services.
Bob is a past President of the Rotary Club of Central Citrus County, a long time member of the Florida Public Relations Association (Nature Coast Chapter) and donates a great deal of his and the agency’s time and resources to benefit fundraisers for the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches, Hospice and numerous school and church organizations. He is also Co-Publisher of Citrus County Life Magazine, the county’s premier lifestyle magazine which was launched in January 2005.
Vice President & Art Director
Joanne earned a B.A. degree in Graphic Design and Fine Art at Montserrat College of Art, Beverly, MA. As Bob’s younger daughter she basically “grew up in the Ad Agency business.” In 1991, she followed her family to the warmer climate of Florida. She has been the Florida agency’s art director since its inception in 1991 and has helped the company grow and prosper to the status it now enjoys.
In addition to Art Director, she also serves as an Account Executive and represents the ad agency at many business and community functions. Joanne is a long time Rotarian and additionally volunteers for many worthwhile local causes including the annual fund-raising events for The Continuity of Care and the region’s Community College’s “The Taste of Citrus”.
Vice President & General Manager
As the agency’s G.M., Kathy’s role is to ensure the smooth flow of projects through the company. Her outstanding negotiating skills often saves our clients a great deal of money in their media buys, printing and mailing costs. She is also the agency’s direct contact with A.S.I. (Advertising Specialty Institute) which allows us to negotiate and purchase directly from manufacturers on virtually any imprinted ad specialty items, ranging from coffee mugs to embroidered shirts to golf equipment to pens to whatever.
In addition to being Bob’s older daughter, Kathy is a wife and the mother of two children. While working at the agency, she somehow found the time and desire to earn an Associate’s Degree in Business Management from Central Florida Community College (CFCC). Kathy is an accomplished Account Executive and when she’s not with clients, behind the scenes she is involved with many phases of client services for all clients including media research, ad placement, verification of invoices from the media as well as coordinating the agency’s receivables and payables.
Don has been with the agency for over four years and has been an integral part of our growth since joining us. He primarily serves as our Inside Sales Manager, coordinating many phases of activities which are unique to the advertising agency industry. We serve many types of clients in a variety of disciplines. One of his many responsibilities at the agency is in researching and recommending ad specialty products that will enhance a company’s marketing and advertising efforts or will provide additional sales or awareness through promotion.
