Weirdos. Geniuses. Savants.

Nice to meet you.

Jen
CEO, Principal

Jen embodies the word Brave. Want proof? She’s adventured to 29 countries, climbed the Great Wall of China while 7-months pregnant, and oh, founded her own agency and helped it thrive for over 20 years. With 4 Scout offices across the country and the most SkyMiles in the agency, she leads as effortlessly as she partners and is always up for learning something new. And that includes trends and advice from her 3 tweens at home.

Cheryl
President

You should be warned now that if you work with Cheryl there’s eventually going to be a karaoke outing. Our President and Chief Strategy Officer and mother of two has 25 years of industry experience with many strengths gained along the way. In fact, don’t challenge her to a push-up competition. You’ll lose.

Mash
Creative

Mash’s ad adventures are evenly matched by those in his life. From Ethiopian mountains on production, to sleeping alone in a haunted Scottish castle, nothing phases him – including the hottest pepper you can find. He has three kids and a dog named “Melo” who brings him more joy than his basketball playing namesake.

Lynda
Talent

No NDAs needed here as Lynda is a proud mom of two teenage boys and blasting 70s music on any road trip she has time for. She studied acting with a dream of making it big in NYC but traded that grind for 20+ year career of recognizing great talent and hiring the right people for the role.

Kelly
Account

Kelly has been in the industry since before American Idol started. That’s not just a random fact, it’s a great segue to tell you she legit tried out for the show. Since she still works at Scout, you can guess the result. However, her account director voice is nearly flawless and respected by her team and her clients.

Betsy
Creative

Bring your conceptual briefs and your inner geek. For all the things Betsy can do creatively, she can do even more with society’s junk which she turns into beautiful robot art (check out @robotjunky). Her coffee runs can be timed to the second and the workers at Chick-fil-A know her name and she’s not ashamed of it.

Peter
Creative

Peter landed in Atlanta after freezing in Chicago and fighting the subway riders in New York. He cut his teeth writing radio and tv ads for insurance companies and banks, which taught him to live his life in perfectly timed :30 increments. He has 1 wife and kid, 2 golden retrievers, and 3 screws in his back.

Jess
Account

Our 2018 employee of the year, Jess comes with big brand experience from some of the biggest agencies in the world. Speaking of the world, she’s fluent in 3 languages – fueling her certifiable travel obsession. With her curious mind, the only thing she likes better than reading is telling you what she’s reading.

Sarah
Account

Sarah is the best life juggler you’ve ever seen with 13 years of ad experience and potentially too many children. It can’t be proven that having 5 kids is directly linked to her wine intake, but it’s a pretty good guess. She even lived in Switzerland for 5 years and, man, does that sound more peaceful than 5 kids.

Rich
Project Management

Honestly though, who has the time or the will to finish 3 Ironmans? Rich. Rich does. But when your job is to literally make sure an entire agency stays on schedule and get things done efficiently, it makes perfect sense. When he’s not riding, biking, swimming or managing, you’ll find Rich cooking. Ask him for samples.

Cynthia
Project Management

What are the secrets to keeping all the agency and client projects running smoothly? If you watch Cynthia in action, you’d realize it’s a fondness for all things Prince, kids, and insane daily workouts. I’m talking crazy ‘how did you not pull something’ workouts, which make her ultra suited to run circles around projects in the office.

Allison
Strategy

Where to even start with Allison? A corgi connoisseur. A published hip hop hash cookbook copywriter. A rock band, piano playing chanteuse. An 11 yr-old Annie on a cross country Broadway tour. Did we mention the Lifetime movie? She’s lived more lives than most cats, which gives her amazing insights into digital strategy.

Angie
Account

As per her LinkedIn profile, Angie is all in on advertising. President of the Atlanta Ad Club, she keeps both us and our clients up to speed on industry happenings around town. Things that make her happy include dog snuggles, the golden hour for the perfect picture, and Atlanta United wins.

Greg
Creative

Greg is our resident tall person. If he’s not busy thinking about words or looking over an art director’s shoulder, he likes to bug creative directors with wild ideas. When the ideas are good, he gets very excited. Ask him to play scrabble or darts, and his brain will explode. It’s fun.

Brittany
Creative

Brittany is always on her phone but not in a rude way. Our chief liker-commenter-engager extraordinaire, Brittany went to law school but left it for the ‘gram. She’s a former D-1 athlete who currently uses her athletic abilities to corral her two children.

Reggie
Finance

Reggie is so nice, the fact that he hands us our expense checks isn’t even our favorite thing about him. He and his wife are natural entertainers who always have something going on at the house, beside their three kids. Give him a high five when you see him roaming the halls. He deserves it.

Debbie
Account

Debbie is equal parts comedian and book worm. If she’s not smiling and bringing her positive attitude you should panic because the world is probably ending. She’s led clients on banks, hotels, and seafood. You could call that the triathlon of clients. Or we could just tell you she’s competed in a triathlon.

Katie
Account

WARNING: If you bring your dog to the office, it will end up on Katie’s Instagram. In fact, your dog could end up on a colored pencil portrait as Katie’s art abilities rival her account management skills. A Creative Circus dropout, her true specialty is guiding clients towards great work.

Callan
Account

Callan loves to ski but loves Atlanta even more. Raised in Denver, Colorado, Callan was hired on her merits to drive us all home in the next snowpocalypse. Her passion for travel and adventure (she swam with sharks in South Africa) makes her a perfect match for this fast-paced industry we call advertising.

Matt
Production

This project manager turned producer never shies away from a challenge. Whether it’s jumping out of a plane, by choice, twice, or producing a campaign in Poland starring dozens of animals, Matt will one day be the old man who has truly seen it all. He has 2 rescue dogs – one named Scooby who has yet to solve a mystery.

AG
Creative

“AG” is short for Astrology Genius (legal name). Ask him anything about the stars. He brings auto industry experience in both advertising and life. This guy literally built his own Chevy 1970 C-10. The ultimate maker, AG makes his own hot sauce and own food. Sometimes, he brings that food to us. Those are good days.

Penny
Creative

Penny prides herself in producing anything and everything (print and digital) in a “lickity split” timeframe. From banks, to mozzarella sticks, and even carpet fibers, she’s seen it all in her 20+ years. She works for the weekend and her homemade adult fudge. She comes with a few Cavalier King Charles pups.

Randy
Finance

Randy loves math so much he has more dogs than he can count. When he’s not chasing down his friends with four paws, he’s either traveling or watching Laverne and Shirley. This proud owner of that show’s complete DVD set loves all things old-school. When you see him, quiz him on and 70s and 80s sitcom. He’ll win.

Chad
Finance

Our head counter of numbers and figures, Chad not only leads the finance team but is a proud dad of 3 boys and a championship winning little league coach (he wouldn’t let us dump Gatorade on him). When he’s not sign stealing from the dugout, you’ll see him and his entire family RVing on their next road trip.

Megan
HR

The first person you meet when you walk in will also be the most helpful. Megan takes pride in making Scout function without a hitch. She also takes pride in her right hook as she spends much of her spare time in the boxing ring. Protip: Don’t leave your dirty dishes in the sink. Things could get dangerous.

Stephen
Creative

Based on Stephen’s accent, your third guess on where he was born would be South Africa. Then you’d find out it was San Francisco and be a bit shocked. Stevo grew up in Zimbabwe, went to college in South Africa, and was a professionally trained safari guide in Africa before he began his long career in advertising.

JP
IT

Submit your ticket to the master of all things tech. His favorite phrase is ‘turn it off then turn it back on again’ because it happens to work 98% of the time. If that doesn’t do it, he’ll scroll through his rolodex of IT jokes you’ve heard before then fix your issue with ease.

Jackie
Production

‘Impossible’ may be a word to Daniel Webster, but not to Jackie. Impossible deadlines? Never. Impossible projects? Puh-leeze. Even the most unflappable producer hasn’t taught their cat to fetch. Speaking of impossible, her homemade Jewish Briskets, low country boils, and bouillabaisses are all impossibly delicious. Oh, and she gardens. So watch your back, Martha Stewart.

Denise
Production

Denise loves order and structure. And a good spreadsheet. Like the time she planned her own wedding in France, with travel arrangements for 42 of her closest friends and family members. She also manages a huge annual fundraiser, hosting thousands of beer lovers, — while working and raising one amazing kid.
