Led by Owner Brent Bowen, we’re a group of accomplished marketing and communications professionals with 30-plus years of experience spanning a wide range of disciplines.

An amalgam of corporate, agency, startup and venture capital positions have afforded them the opportunity to showcase both depth and breadth in digital marketing, brand management, public relations, strategy and change management, executive communications, event management and social media.

Equally adept in industries from entertainment to highly regulated verticals, we put the “fun” in funnel and know how to weave a compelling story for even the most daunting project.
