Robin Stefanovich


Robin combines formidable business savvy with fine-tuned leadership skills and the soul of an artist. She has yet to encounter a challenge that intimidated her. Her experience gained from companies in industries such as defense, homeland security, and high-tech makes her extremely well suited to lead an advertising agency. Always on the go, Robin is an avid runner and traveler, sometimes doing both at the same time.

Erich Stefanovich

Chief Creative Officer

A master at making a sales impact in the marketplace, Erich’s creative work is distinguished for the cultural impact he’s made on behalf of some of the world’s most celebrated brands, including Aflac, Absolut Vodka and The Ritz-Carlton, to name a few. He cut his creative teeth at some of the industry’s most prestigious creative agencies such as TBWA/Chiat Day, and Young & Rubicam. If it’s a sunny day, expect to see him on the trail on his mountain bike – or if it’s winter, on his skis buried in powder.

LeeAnn Phillips

Creative Director

LeeAnn is one of those creatives that sees the big picture, never missing an opportunity to tell a brand’s story in the most wonderfully colorful way. Her ideas are authentic and they originate from truth. She takes the emotional and gives it a verbal and visual expression always sensitive to its origin. That’s not easy to do, which is why all the work she does never looks or feels the same. She’s a native Floridian (yes, they exist) always with a smile and always bringing cheer.

Stuart Rubenstein

Director of Business Development

Stuart approaches business development with a fanatical focus on serving clients and fostering long-term relationships. His dynamic career is expansive and has included working internationally for a Fortune 50 company, and as CEO of his own firm he recently sold. Stuart deploys his extensive business experience, strategic thought leadership and knack for solving complex problems to help clients realize growth. When he’s not thinking about work, Stuart enjoys spending time throwing the pigskin with his daughter, relaxing at his beach house, and touring the country on his bicycle.

Lisa Matthews

Chief Operating Officer

Lisa will tell you that true success comes from collaboration among clients, teammates and partners which gives rise to the dynamic thinking needed to drive a strong and effective communications strategy. Her sense of calm enables her to focus and provide quick thinking to create innovative ideas to highly complex business problems. Outside of work, it’s all about family time with her husband and kids.

Madeleine Schneider

Digital Marketing Manager

Madeleine thrives in the intersection between strategy and creativity, working closely with clients ranging in industries from healthcare, restaurant to travel and tourism. She’s a master at telling their genuine, authentic stories, making engaging and everlasting connections with their audiences. Outside of work, Madeleine enjoys honing her skills in the kitchen and exploring farmers markets to hunt for the freshest local ingredients.

Jason Hall

Director of Digital Technology

Jason is a techno wizard which in today’s digital world of 1’s and 0’s is an absolute must. He can pick up a new technology (if he didn’t create it) overnight which keeps clients and their business on the cutting edge. From complex websites to multi-factedemail programs, he understands the security, business & commerce protocols to bring a brand to life in the digital environment. When not clicking on his keyboard, he’s with his family walking along the beach looking for the perfect seashell.
