Randall R. McDaniels
President/Manager of Account Services

Randy has been immersed in all things marketing his entire life… his dad built this agency from the ground up. But taking over the family business didn’t come easy. Randy worked his way through the agency wearing the hat of copywriter, producer, media buyer, and market analyst before becoming President. His keen sense of industry trends helps him orchestrate his team in creating innovative, well-crafted messages that get results. But the end product isn’t the only thing that’s important to him. Don’t be surprised if he calls you for lunch or simply checks to see how things are going (and if you caught last’s night game), because at the end of the day… it’s relationships that count.

Brenda Tomlinson
Director of Public Relations/Account Coordinator

Brenda – our resident guru or PR Goddess as some have called her – definitely has the press’ ear when it comes to pitching stories for our clients. She’s been at it for over 25 years… so of course, she’s good at what she does! In addition to helping clients maximize their media coverage and maintain a positive public image, Brenda also serves as one of our copywriters, coordinates client projects to ensure they are done on time, helps plan client events, and takes a fine-tooth proofing comb to all projects that go out our doors. And while she makes sure you’ve dotted every “i” and crossed every “t,” her fun-loving personality delivers top-notch final products that further enhance and boost your brand. Email Brenda...

Rod Standley
Senior Art Director

With over 25 years of drawing pictures for a living (most of those at McDaniels), Rod is in his element on pretty much any project you send his way. He has designed everything from annual reports and newsletters to high-end ad campaigns and websites. He’s also a master illustrator, giving life to concepts, logo designs and more. Plus, thanks to the help of his trusty dart gun (which has been reengineered for more power), Rod makes sure each project meets our clients’ marketing objectives… and has a little fun while he’s at it.

Susan Crisler
Interactive Director

Bugs Bunny, board games, bedazzled ceramic frogs, and Budweiser lizard commercials... these are a few of her favorite things, but that doesn’t even begin to describe the bundle of energy that is Susan.  We like to refer to her as a living, breathing, workflow chart – constantly channeling information between clients and our creative team. She continually delivers projects that exceed expectations, and her flair for creativity paired with over 15 years of project management experience make Susan an invaluable resource for us and our clients. At the end of the day, seeing clients walk away with a smile is her number one goal. So bring us your navigation maps, website traffic goals and dream of a smashing website that has customers coming back time and again... then be prepared to smile. Email Susan...
