Talent. Talent. Talent.

A Little Bit About Us
Talent is at the heart of everything we do.
We’ve put together a team of talented and passionate individuals from around the globe.

Our Values

CURIOSITY

Our best ideas come when we uncover the why behind a challenge. Our curiosity fuels creativity, drives innovation, and catalyzes continuous growth for our agency and our clients.

CUSTOMER PASSION

We’re obsessed with helping our customers succeed. Customers aren’t just the client partners who ask us to help solve their toughest challenges—they’re the shoppers who buy their products, the retailers critical to their success, and the Xers who facilitate great work every day.

FEARLESSNESS

We are fearless in our work, the business, and with each other. We say it in the room. We use radical candor. We aren't afraid to take risks and fight for the work, share an opposing view, or bring an audacious solution.

HUMANITY

By celebrating the human element as the foundation of everything we do, we nurture big ideas, bring joy to collaboration, and build meaningful connections with each other, our partners, and clients.

HUSTLE

We make big ideas happen. We roll up our sleeves, find extraordinary solutions to challenges, and deliver best-in-class executions. When we rally to deliver with urgency, we realize nothing is impossible—and everybody wins.

OWNERSHIP

Extreme ownership means taking ultimate accountability for our work, our team, our results, and our agency. The decisions we make and how we lead should be made as if the business is our own—because it is.

Life as an Xer

That’s what we call ourselves: Xers. And it’s a name that means a lot.
Here’s a little sampling of what life as an Xer is like:

Hard Work. Serious Fun.

When you have a bunch of people collaborating while doing what they love, work is part of the fun. We enjoy every minute of what we do and are rewarded for it through joy deposits, our annual company rager, and by almost winning the local kickball league.

Family First

Being an Xer is like being a part of a big family, which is why we have events like our office-wide Thanksgiving week lunch. But we know you also have a family waiting for you at home. Part of the reason our retention rate shatters the industry average is because of our generous time-off package, four weeks paid leave for new parents, financial assistance if you decide to adopt, and most importantly, pets are always welcome.

Joy Deposits

Joy deposits AKA Random Acts of Cartwright (He’s our COO.) are just one of the things that make life as an Xer special. You may come into the agency on hump day and be greeted by a camel. On other days, you may be serenaded by a Gaelic band while you work, or you may even be called into a meeting in our theatre only to walk into a mid-summer snowball fight. It’s pretty special, and if you were wondering, the answer is yes. The camel did drop a number two right in front of our CEO’s door.

Leadership

Jessica Hendrix

President & CEO
She’s been an Xer for 11+ years and in the retail and agency world for over 20. She also firmly believes that bacon is its own food group.

Mauriahh Esquivel

VP, Group Creative Director

She started here as a designer and is now the global creative lead. She also loves talent competition shows. She gets too excited to fall asleep if she watches them too late.

Lela Davidson

VP, Account Leadership & Client Partnership

She’s published books, founded media companies, and empties the lint tray after every load.

Nicholas Sammer

VP, Client Partnership & Brand Strategy

He’s led big CPG brands, helped build a multi-million-dollar startup, and is a total sucker for the Golden Girls.

Erin Campbell

SVP, Strategy

She once taught over 800 Walmart executives about the ways of the millennial generation. She always catches and releases spiders from her home before the cats can get them.

Amanda Rogers

SVP, Operations

In her 17 years in the industry, she’s had roles from traffic to account leadership to operations. It’s all thanks to a Jennifer Aniston movie, which inspired her to change from an education major.

Ellis Collins

Sr. VP, Production Services

15 years ago, he was a production manager at Saatchi & Saatchi X. Today he’s leading the executional department.

Melissa Newport

VP, Finance

She’s worked in finance for 30+ years. In that time, she’s seen more than 20 countries from every angle—including Egypt on a camel’s back and Kenya from a hot air balloon.

James David

VP, Growth Management

He’s a veteran of the military and the industry, with over 20 years of experience between the two. But that’s never kept him from his true love — comics and sci-fi. He owns every MCU movie.

Mick Suh

SVP, Commerce and Business Development

His fearlessness in the cockpit as an Army Aviation officer helped him lead a number of major CPG brands. On the flip side, he’s now afraid to play his teenaged daughter in tennis as he can no longer win.
