    You’ve always understood that to be disruptive is better than to be conventional. To pursue challenges is more admirable than to be complacent. You don’t settle, and you won’t let your team or your clients accept less than the best that their capabilities allow. And you routinely remind them that what’s possible should never be underestimated.

    The status quo exists to be examined and defied. You build strong relationships with your clients, and help them to embrace this idea and realize the true potential of their brands. You refuse to accept “this is how we’ve always done it” and push instead for “how has it never been done?” You establish new models and approaches that introduce unexpected solutions to brand challenges. And your leadership gives your team and your clients the confidence to reach outside the familiar.
