Lowell Dillon | President
Hang around here long enough and you'll hear one sound coming from Lowell's office more than any other: crinkling cellophane. That's because as far as Lowell's concerned, there's only one food group that matters: ginger snaps.
But you know what? He's always willing to share. That's because Lowell—President, Leader, Dad, and Soccer Coach—is an all-around good guy. He's been helping clients generate millions of dollars in sales for the past 25 years with his strategic, comprehensive no-nonsense approach to marketing planning. A talented artist in his own right, you'll be just as likely to find Lowell sketching ad ideas for clients as working on strategic growth plans for the agency. And though we are inclined to wonder how on earth anyone could hate chocolate, we forgive him because his cool, Zen-like demeanor keeps things running smoothly around here.
Donna Wolfe | Production and Office Manager
Trust us; Donna's forgotten more than you ever knew about production. She regularly says things like "let's mic that out" and "nope, that's a mill item," and if you have no idea what a micrometer is or why a mill item is bad, you're not alone. As our Production and Office Manager, Donna makes sure things run smoothly around here and regularly interfaces with vendors, manages quotes, and specs out complicated print projects for clients.
Donna's worked in production for years, and though she's directed production departments for Nestlé and Stouffer Hotels, she actually got her start when we were still Ashby + Associates in the 60s. That's her over there, welcoming you to our old offices in the Terminal Tower, downtown Cleveland.
Dallas Riffle | Creative Director
As our Creative Director, Dallas is focused on one thing: ... wait. Scratch that. Somehow, Dallas is able to focus on approximately a thousand things a day. Maybe it has something to do with all that high-octane coffee, but the truth is, he actually THRIVES in the middle of all that chaos.
On any given day, you'll find Dallas surrounded by five glowing screens, all filled with imaginative digital works of art that are as beautiful as they are functional. He's always up to date on the latest trends in user experience, whether it's online, in print or in motion. It shows too, because clients love his work just as much as he loves dreaming it up.
And don't let the tie fool you—it was picture day, so the Iron Maiden T-shirt stayed at home.
