At 2e, we have the honor of being wholly immersed in a world of seekers, explorers and future shapers. And telling their story means we must synthesize vast seas of information into something actionable and meaningful.
So we relentlessly pursue fluency of our clients, their objectives and their audiences. We continuously marry logic and creativity to craft solutions that move markets and minds.
Ross is first and foremost a storyteller. Having embarked on his career in the creative business as a copywriter, his years at 2e have honed his ability to help organizations articulate differentiation. As our agency’s President & CEO, he is an advocate for compelling brand narrative and influential change — both for 2e and our clients. Ross is heavily involved in the Young Presidents Organization, serves on the board of the Business Marketing Association and helps to raise two young daughters with guidance from his [remarkably] patient wife.
A profoundly experienced financial expert, it’s difficult to find a more respectable guy than Steve. After serving as CFO for a number of agencies over the years, this Desert Storm Marine Corps Reserve veteran’s biggest point of pride still stems from his status as a CBC graduate. For those that understand what that means, yes, he’s one of those people.
A native Hoosier, Brandon came to 2e armed with a skill set fueled by extraordinary communicative instinct, better-than-average food and turn-of-the-century hip-hop. With over a decade of experience in storytelling and brand development + cultivation, he oversees much of the agency’s business direction along with its development of novel applications. He’s also a super modest James Beard finalist.
Lynda has been with 2e from the beginning. “I started as a young, idealistic designer plugging away in a stuffy third-floor attic.” Since then, the company has (thankfully) moved twice, but its core remains the same. “We’ve always had an unspoken passion to rise above the expected, and it’s still fascinating to me to see us turn an idea into something truly compelling.” Lynda leads our team of creatives to create work that is not only inspired, but also right on target with your business objectives.
For the past 25 years, Melinda has been building relationships with Fortune 100 brands on both coasts. Her migration to 2e was spurred by a desire to work on something that positively impacts the lives of others. Ever a trusted confidante and business consultant, her passion for her work is reflected in the tremendous growth of both client work and new talent.
