Our People

We can tell you things about our people that you've probably heard from every agency: We're smart. Talented. Passionate about what we do.

What matters more about the people at Innis Maggiore is the way we work with our clients, because it's a reflection of a culture rooted in values you won't find at every agency; values rooted in our community and service organizations; in families, fellowship, and faith. As a reflection of these values, we don't accept work we believe to be detrimental to society.

When we say "valuable," we're not talking about account size or brand cachet; we place priority on long-term relationships, collaboration, and invested knowledge. This is what you can expect from Innis Maggiore people.

Dick Maggiore

Dick Maggiore
President & CEO

"Great advertising is hard. Surround yourself with thinkers, dreamers and doers. When the right strategic idea (position) strikes the right creative, it's electric. It has the power to transform human behavior. Unless your advertising is built on this big idea, it will pass like a ship in the night."

Mark Vandegrift

Mark Vandegrift
Principal & COO

"Let’s cut through the cute and clever and get to the heart of what we do: position our clients for success!"

Kathi Maggiore

Kathi Maggiore
Principal | Administration

"Handling the finances requires attention to detail and a determination to see things through. Like the jigsaw puzzles I work on with my mom, sometimes it’s frustrating, but no problem or challenge is insurmountable."

Jeff Monter

"Design is an adventure. Every day you go someplace you haven’t been before."

Lorraine Kessler

Lorraine Kessler
Principal | Strategy & Client Services

"I’ve always enjoyed sculpting. Like an image trapped inside a block of marble, every company or brand has a differentiated purpose hidden inside it. I help clients picture their idea and carve away until it’s set free."

Stacie Alex

Executive Creative Director

"I hear and see things that aren't there. Luckily, I use them to make commercials and ads, and fortunately understand that positioning makes coming up with ideas easier (something I readily appreciate)."

Casey Schandel

Casey Schandel
Director Media Services

"Whether in my personal or professional life, I’m always looking to get the biggest bang for the buck. I think we should outthink, not outspend the competition."

Cheryl Henderson

Cheryl Henderson

"I am a Disney fanatic, cake/cupcake/cookie artist, musical theatre enthusiast and crazy cat lady. I bring a sprinkle of pixie dust, sugar, joy – and maybe some incidental cat fur – to all of my design projects."

Sara DeJaneiro

Sara DeJaneiro
Web Developer

"I like to explore and study each new thing I encounter every day so I can maintain an open mind full of ideas. When it comes to web development, this is essential. I always want to bring the latest and greatest ideas to our clients' websites."

Jack Wollitz

Jack Wollitz
Senior Director Digital Content

"In advertising, as in bass fishing, it’s about fishing where the big fish live and knowing how to make them bite."

Emily Mays

Emily Mays
