Before partnering with Phil, Jim spent 15 years as sales manager for TV stations in Omaha, Phoenix, Wichita and Kansas City. It’s this “other-side-of-the-desk” experience that gives him an insider’s understanding of content and distribution models in today’s splintered media world. Besides providing unique media perspectives, Jim also heads up the MBB Consumer Engagement Team, helping them find new ways to extend reach and budget. Jim’s vast media experience has made him remarkably astute in sensing a good deal, something our clients seem to appreciate. Although Jim holds a MBA from Creighton, he’s a Jayhawk through and through.
Vice President, Consumer Engagement
Steven helps MBB clients develop smart digital strategies and explore new interactive frontiers. He readily admits to being a digital geek, and his deep passion for it becomes readily apparent when you hear him expound on all things digital, including eCRM, ecommerce, user experience, taxonomy, wireframes, mobile, application development, business systems analyst, quality assurance tester, social media and analytics. Whew. Prior to joining us, Steven spent five years with Kansas City’s largest interactive agency, working on national brands like Burger King, SAP and Kashi. Steven holds two BS degrees from Kansas State University in marketing and general management.
Vice President, Creative
From consumer-packaged goods to large animal health, Garrett has helped concept and develop award-winning copy for a wide variety of brands in a wide variety of industries. A few of his past client experiences include Gatorade, Westlake Ace Hardware and Merial Limited. Although Garrett’s writing style changes from client to client, he’s never one to pass up a snarky headline when given the chance. In fact, he’ll write one for you right now. Just ask him.
Garrett is incredibly quick on his feet…literally. In 2006, he ran the Boston Marathon and placed 143 out of 20,000 runners. His time? 2:40:00.

We aren't really sure why she keeps wearing this outfit around the office, but she's sort of become the unofficial mascot around here.
