Brittany McCrone: Designer. Baker. Award-Winning Concept-Maker

In case you’ve missed it, this month we’re all about May Millennial Madness at SKM Group. We recognize and are excited about this increasingly important generation of creative, altruistic, and technologically-savvy 20-somethings who are taking the workforce and economy by storm. When the time […]

Bernie Gives Us the Skinny on Account Supervisor Ashley Lewis

For this edition of “Meet the Bloggers,” we thought we’d shake things up a bit and ask one of SKM’s preeminent pooches, Bernie, the questions about our subject. As someone who knows her the best (he might even argue that Ashley’s husband, Patrick, comes in a distant second), we found that Bernie held nothing back when telling us about his mom, from her multi-tasking abilities as she juggles the demands of her job at SKM and motherhood (human son Henry, or Hank, was born in October), to her role in helping win SKM new business, and even her weekend routines. Ashley has been with SKM since August 2014. She’s responsible for the agency’s new business accounts, shaping our approach to seeking and securing new opportunities, as well as creating proposals and playing a matchmaker of sorts by making sure the right people at SKM are on the pitching team.

Copywriter Greg Bauch Is All About the Funny Business

Even though he’s only been with us for a relatively short time, copywriter Greg Bauch has made quite an impression. Literally. That’s because in addition to his day job of molding the written word like he’s Demi Moore at that potter’s wheel in “Ghost,” […]

Andrea Liseno, Proudly Wearing the Grammar Police Badge

Proofreader Andrea Liseno has the unenviable task of correcting our mistakes. Not that we make very many of them, but with millions of words churning out of the office every week, chances are that a solid chunk of them  pass by her sharp eye […]

Traffic Manager Jonathan Koziol’s Got the Ticket to Music, Sports and the Shortest Commute Ever

Using the word “diverse” to describe Jonathan Koziol’s interests doesn’t seem adequate, considering he combines his love of music and sports, radio and marketing, and family and friends as effortlessly as Taylor Swift and angst-y love songs. The son of a music teacher and […]

There’s Something About Mary

Agency life has been described as baptism by fire, a sentiment to which production manager Mary Usen can certainly relate.  Barely a year in as an SKMer, Mary’s been busy in our DM Center of Excellence making sure the creative vision translates into a […]

Getting a Taste of Client Travel

Some will tell you that traveling for work is tedious and never fun.
They’re liars.
All of them.

See, when you’re in advertising and you get to visit clients you actually like (which are all of ours, obviously), traveling for work can actually be enjoyable.

At the end […]

Jason Hughes: Designer. Gearhead. Not a Sun Worshipper.

When associate creative director Jason Hughes isn’t designing the latest marketing piece that stands out from your typical run-of-the-mill mailer, you can find him either tinkering with cars in his garage or out and about with his wife, Allison, and their sons Reed (3) […]

Number by Name, Numbers by Trade

There may be more to a name than Shakespeare thought. Take, for example, Angela Twentyfive, accounting manager. As one of our number crunchers, she helps ensure our bills are paid on time and clients are invoiced accurately while navigating SKMers through the sometimes turbulent […]
