The people behind the products. Doug considers everything, thoughtfully. In fact, he never really stops thinking. His mind is always analyzing, understanding, learning and creating insights that his clients can use to further their businesses. All of this makes him more than just good at what he does. It makes what he can do for you, great.

Then, he applies razor-sharp attention to detail, deep strategic thinking and exceptional talent to deliver creative that’s brand-right — and impossible to ignore.

As a public relations professional and the leader of CBD’s content practice, he and his team uncover the storylines, then develop creative and compelling ways to tell them. From white papers and news articles to blog posts and tweets, Bob combines the curiosity of a journalist with the strategy of a data-driven content manager. It’s all in an effort to give our clients results — in earned, owned or social media — that are worth writing home about.
Mary Olivieri EVP, Executive Creative Director Mary is the rare creative director who seems to have an endless supply of positive energy. And her thriving creative department crackles with excitement because of it. She is guided by her keen perception and killer strategic approach to work, all of which is fueled by her background in theater. Clients love her — and people love to work with her — because the work she inspires is award-winning. For those of you who want to know the ego stuff…she has delivered amazing results for some of the biggest brands out there, including P&G and Coca-Cola. But, don’t you have better things to do with your time? Go on now. Before she puts you to work.
Stephanie Ragonese Account Director A strategic thinker and creative problem solver, Stephanie enjoys diving deep into our clients’ business and working alongside them to overcome marketing challenges. Her straightforward and honest leadership encourages thoughtful collaboration across departments and teams. And as the mother of two toddlers, she maintains a sense of calm even in the most chaotic environments, adapting to ever-changing situations with ease.
Mark Robinson SVP, Digital Strategy, Media and Analytics Analytical, articulate and passionate about excellence, Mark’s deep knowledge of digital marketing and the customer journey informs his commitment to a data-driven, integrated media approach. Over a 20-year career, he’s dedicated himself to achieving business goals across the spectrum of marketing and media channels — from programmatic/DSP, display, paid search and social to experiential, print, broadcast and lead gen. In addition to his agency experience, Mark has held leadership roles at DeVry University, Sears Holdings Corp., Insure.com, CNA eBusiness and IVillage.com
Mark Shevitz EVP, Director of Client Strategy and Planning “Yeah, but what’s the insight?” Mark’s the kind of guy who gets right to the heart of the matter. Which is why he’s so great at what he does: finding what differentiates our clients from their competition and propelling them forward by articulating that new vision. It figures that he’s a runner and a rower in his spare time, as Mark is always moving forward, relentlessly pursuing a place at the forefront.
