We’re excited to announce our staff has recently grown significantly. The addition of these six new z2-ers brings our total number of employees up to 18—our all-time high in 10 years. And we have to say, we’ve added some extremely talented new team members.

Introducing…

Ewan O’Donnell – Senior Account Executive

Ewan

A native of Scotland, Ewan most recently worked as an account supervisor at GMR Marketing on the Pepsico account. Over the past six years, he’s also worked with big names like Amazon, Gerber, and Ford UK—plus some major whisky brands and retailers in Scotland (he’s a big fan of whiskey).

In his spare time, Ewan coaches the Muskego High School Rugby team, and is also an assistant coach for the Wisconsin Select team. He enjoys mountain biking, golf, rugby and weight lifting. He and his wife, Allison—who’s responsible for bringing him to the States—have two dogs, Ghillie and Maisie.

Jonathan Warobick – Art Director

Jonathan joins us from Company B Branding & Marketing where he worked with well-known, local hospitality clients like Black Sheep Wine Tap Bar, The Iron Horse Hotel, Wolf Peach, and Stack’d Burger Bar. A graduate of Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD), Jonathan now teaches there part-time.

In his free time, Jonathan enjoys hanging out with his miniature English bull terrier, Ian, and creating art for various local events. He prides himself on being a big Mac & Cheese aficionado, and claims Triskele’s offers the best in town.

Scott Wexler – Copywriter

Scott

A rising star in the branding industry, Scott most recently worked at Image Makers Advertising in Waukesha. A graduate of the University of Missouri, his spare time is usually spent at Miller Park, where he has a part-time gig in promotions. He loves baseball, and the opportunity to spend time at the ballpark is something he never takes for granted.

Fun fact: Deb worked for Scott’s dad at WTMJ when Scott was just a little tike.

Kristina has worked with clients in a variety of industries, including residential housing, banking, entertainment, and healthcare. A proud UW—Madison alum, her most recent position was with Mortenson Safar Kim.

Ashley enjoys reading and writing Young Adult/New Adult fiction, attempting to sing karaoke, playing video games, pretending to enjoy running, watching as many horror movies as possible, and eating… a lot. She has a husband, Zak, puppy named Furler, and a kitten named Dexter (who’s a girl). Next time you see her, ask her to do one of her two famous impressions—Yoshi (from Super Mario) and Navi (from The Legend of Zelda).
