“At Kahntact I lead the strategic planning and branding processes, and provide direction on creative and public relations.

For our clients, I bring 25 years’ experience in all segments of the agri-food industry, plus a wealth of communications experience, and a robust network of connections built over the years. My personal motto is ‘have fun and get it done’, with a heavy emphasis on the ‘get it done’ part!

I get energy from working collaboratively with our clients to help them achieve their goals. I feel the core of my job is to help each of our clients make their bonus each year, and advance their career. Because if they make their bonus it means the company has achieved its business objectives. If an agency can bring that to the table, I believe we truly are adding value.”

It’s my job to translate the needs of one side to the other and then explain the solutions we are proposing. It’s critical to listen to and understand the client’s needs and goals.

I enjoy the collaborative work style we have at Kahntact. We operate without the bureaucracy of many traditional agencies and this results in a strong team feeling, an openness that makes work fun, and an ability to get things done quickly and efficiently for our clients. I believe our clients respond to this style and tend to be open and willing to look at different and unique approaches to their work. I love working with our clients and finding creative solutions to help them reach their marketing goals.”

It takes attention to detail and the ability to think ahead to avoid potential problems. I value the high level of professionalism our clients have, and enjoy the teamwork that exists between client and agency. Large or small projects, it makes no difference. In every case, it's our job to take our clients' worries off their shoulders. As an agency, we know that every tactic our client is working on is part of a larger corporate plan. Our contribution must integrate into that larger picture. Worrying about the details comes with the territory, even if it keeps me awake at night, because I truly care about the quality of every project I touch.”

I enjoy pushing our creative to the next level in the pursuit of great results for our clients.

We start by listening. We know the importance of listening to the client so that we understand the challenges they’re facing. We work hard and only bring the best work to the table. Of course, we have our share of ‘battles’ about strategy and creative along the way – but that’s part of the fun.

Clients are looking to their agency for expertise and experience. We have that, but there’s another element that clients want to see: passion. Passion for the client's business goes a long way and it’s often the difference between good and great.”

Account Director

When you’re an account director, you’re the guy in the middle. You’re integrating the client’s perspective with the agency’s expertise.

You have to find that common ground that everyone can play on while coaching the team. A good rule of thumb is never go anywhere without the tools of the trade: brain, duct tape, sharpie, scissors, glue gun.

The most important thing is the people, the relationships and how we all work together. We have a strong sense that we’re all in this together – client and agency -- and by collaborating, we will find and develop the best solution. And we do.

I love the team dynamic we have. Kahntact people are seasoned pros who bring a variety of expertise and experience and always try to look at things in a new and fresh way.”

Communication Specialist

I’m in the business of creating good content for clients. Content that goes the extra mile in helping clients discover their voice, tell a story and make an impact on new audiences.

Storytelling has always been my passion, and I believe that a good yarn is at the root of anything that gets you thinking, that moves you – that’s actually worth reading.

As a writer first and foremost, I know that you’re only as good as your source material. That’s why I’m about building relationships with our clients so that we can tell their stories creatively, effectively and authentically.

Quality storytelling is also about collaboration and flexibility. It’s a give and take process that’s always getting revisited, honed and refined over time to keep up with our clients’ ever-evolving needs.

It’s my mission to find an authentic voice for a client’s marketing and communications, then express that voice consistently and persuasively everywhere

There’s no substitute for listening. After all, the client knows their product and their market intimately. Being on the outside, however, we can often help clients see familiar things in powerful new ways.

Kahntact embodies a spirit of collaboration that I just treasure. When we meet to discuss a client project, you’ll find diverse but complementary perspectives around the table. Because we respect and like each other, no one’s reluctant to challenge an idea or an execution. If an idea makes it through everyone at Kahntact in one piece, we’re very confident that it’ll bring our client lots of value.

Creative Director

I am part of a unique team of like-minded, uber-talented people who all believe that what truly matters is providing our clients with the absolute best and most creative bang for their buck.

I have always believed that planning, strategizing, creating and implementing top-drawer marketing and communications solutions for our clients has been the best and most rewarding career one could ever hope for. That whole process, from blank paper to finished campaign materials that work for the client, is an incredibly inspirational thing to be a part of. Happy clients, happy me. I bring a great deal of experience in crafting creative solutions to the Kahntact table and there is nothing I like better than stretching the limits of ‘the big idea’. Well that, and having as much fun as possible too!
