After earning scores of creative honors and setting sales records for clients like StubHub, DriveTime and Kona Brewing, Parker now devotes the bulk of his time to “advertising” the advertising agency he co-founded with Robert Duncan. He works to raise the company’s creative profile, preserve its nefarious and sordid culture and seek out those new clients ready to do the most memorable and effective work around. As a side hustle, Parker still works as a humble copywriter on various client businesses just like he did when he first started right out of school at FCB/San Francisco. (It’s probably his favorite part of the job.)
Noël is DC’s first director of marketing and client engagement and what the hell is that exactly? Think of her as a new business person who doesn’t ghost when the pitch is over. Rather, she stays on to make sure the on-boarding is smooth and continues to check in regularly to ensure all clients stay happy clients. We’re told it’s her dream job. And she’s had lots of dreamy jobs, beginning with her days in sports marketing where she had access to free golf 24/7. Noël comes to us after helping launch Most Likely To, a creative consultancy, and years of leading client relationships at MH VCCP and Adaptive Path, working on clients including HP, Airbnb, Deckers and SoFi. You might think she’s most proud of orchestrating complex campaigns during March Madness and the Super Bowl. Yet, after navigating the adventures of her young daughter, Piper, nothing seems quite as challenging. Ahem, rewarding.
