Rob Perry

Rob Perry

Senior Media Buyer

Rob’s journey to becoming a media buyer started out just like any other marketer… he went to school for Law Enforcement. 

Through a deep desire to continue to serve others and make an impact on a larger scale, he pushed forward into the career of digital marketing. He went back to school and started to study digital marketing and found out very quickly how useless school actually was. So he took it upon himself to learn the skill through courses and eventually a part-time job that led to where he is today.

Stephanie MacDonald

Stephanie MacDonald

Director of Recruiting

What started as a furniture flipping hustle in middle school turned into a passion for marketing for Stephanie, who has enjoyed working closely with creative and media buying teams in the agency space.

But don’t let her 9-5 fool you, she’ll still flip a dresser (or three) on the weekend.
