I consider it one of the best partnerships of my professional career. Jay managed his digital team to deliver great quality against tight deadlines, technology challenges and client idiosyncrasies of business and embedded technologies.
He was always thinking strategically and ahead of the client. His efforts were an integral part of the agency winning the largest account in it's 40+ year history. Pretty out of the park!
Co-founder & Principal
Jay challenged my thinking with wonderfully clever left field ideas that always led to big wins.
Jay checks his ego at the door and works each person's idea like it was his own. He makes good ideas great and challenging projects fun. I hope that we get to work together again.
