Our People

The leadership team at Blink has been together for a long time. Combined, we have decades of executive level marketing experience at major brands and account management skills honed at several different creative agencies. We always tap our team’s collective intelligence for every client while still giving the one-on-one service that makes dealing with Blink so unique (and, we hope, so pleasant). Most of our clients become our friends and we value the long-term relationships we build with the people who choose us as their marketing allies.
