President/Founding Partner Dan is a serial entrepreneur and proven business strategist. His innate ability to spot trends and identify opportunities, coupled with a keen intellect and a strong dose of common sense, has been a valuable asset for clients wanting to develop brand platforms that both resonate and endure.
Creative Director Nick believes in creating ads that people actually care about. As media diverges, the best content wins. It’s the filter he applies to each project that crosses his desk. Nick has worked at the country’s top agencies lending his creativity to brands like Coca-Cola, Interac, Corona, Google, Canadian Tire and WestJet. This is Nick’s second stint at WAX after being the first copywriter hired when the agency launched in 2005.
Design Director/Founding Partner Monique is all about simple — it’s the way she lives, works and designs. She leads our multi-faceted design team, creating work that’s both clear in strategic intent and stunning in presentation. In other words, she combines an artist’s sensibility with an engineer’s desire for structure.
Director, Client Services Dennis heads up our account services group, so he’s responsible for building the best team to help our clients unearth the brand truths that drive results. With over 15 years of agency and client-side experience, he’s walked many a mile in client shoes, giving him a definite appreciation for the challenges clients face every day. Despite his last name, “can’t” is not in his vocabulary — unless something is impossible. And even then, he says “cannot”.
Director, Operations Process. Process. Process. Maybe we’re overstating it, but Linda is responsible for managing our internal and external resources so that the work we do for our clients, well, works. She also manages third-party supplier relationships; controls pricing, scheduling and delivery; and always watches for potential obstacles, to help ensure projects are on budget and on time.
