We’re A Group of Individuals With Different Ideals And Ideas That Have Converged In One Spot With One Goal: Help Our Clients Succeed.
Why we do what we do
Principal, Creative Director
Strategist. Entrepreneur. Savvy businessman. Creative guy. Brand designer. Brand builder. Motorcycle enthusiast. A talented guy who's as comfortable with the C-suite as he is with the working suite. An avid reader with an impressive library, who also learns by listening - listening to clients, listening to consumers and listening to the team that surrounds him. Brian is Maycreate's center and through his leadership the agency continues to evolve with our ever-changing industry and marketplace.
Besides the industry publications, there's always a copy of Forbes or Fortune not far away. Prior to beginning Maycreate Idea Group in 2001, Brian sat on the Executive Council of a $4.8 billion dollar corporation, where he served as the Chief Branding Officer. He became familiar with almost any and every kind of business and some of the most unusual brands in his entire marketing and advertising career - a valuable asset for clients and Maycreate alike.
As president and creative director of Maycreate with 19+ years of experience, he's worked on many of the world’s most recognized brands, like Black and Decker, US Cellular, Sprint, Volvo and Hardee’s. His work has been featured in Graphis, Print, Communication Arts and Graphic Design USA and has been honored with Tellys, ADDYs, Webby's and more.
Brian and the group have worked on ad campaigns, interactive, package and environmental design solutions for clients in Portland, Boston, D.C., Atlanta, Orlando, New York and other cities. He also serves on the boards of several non-profit organizations, as well as the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce. In short, he never runs out of things to do.
Our vicious guard dog keeps an eye on Monty. He also comes up with occasional headlines when Monty gets stuck.
Senior Creative Director, Strategist
A tireless perfectionist, Monty not only searches long and hard for the right word(s), but he has an amazing grasp of strategy. That must have come from the 25+ years he spent with J. Walter Thompson, working on some of America's greatest brands. Brands like: Kraft, Oscar Mayer, Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance, Kellogg's, Orkin, Bally's Fitness, US Airways and the United States Marine Corps.
He worked on everything from baby food to beer. He's won almost every industry award, including Gold and Silver EFFIEs, Clios, One Shows, ADDYs and a Bronze Lion at Cannes. He applies the same thinking, discipline and creativity he perfected at JWT to every project and campaign he works on at Maycreate. Clients get his best thinking and lots of personal attention.
He partners with people on projects, discussing strategy and unexpected ideas for creative. That exchange has resulted in work that has not only won awards but won the hearts and minds of consumers and contributors alike.
Monty spends most of his time wrestling with sentences and strategic directions. When he's not doing that, you might find him wrestling with a largemouth bass or trout on the end of a fishing line. He also played piano professionally with jazz groups - almost had a recording contract. Did a lot of community theatre and does all the voiceovers for the agency and clients as well. Ask him what the difference is between a crankbait and a spinner?
Born in Indiana, Glen studied to be a doctor, but three years of Pre-Med was all he could take and he decided to change directions. He switched his program of study to Computer Science. He likes puzzles, the more complex the better. And building a Web site is a very complex puzzle.
When you ask Glen what he does, he puts it this way,"I'm an architect, a linguist, a scientist all rolled up into one. I marry the aesthetic design to the technical application." That's poetry. Not many people can do what Glen does. He was building HTML-based Web sites by hand with the advent of the World Wide Web.
Glen has worked with a number of successful start-ups, including Smart Furniture. He built their entire technological infrastructure. Besides a love for all things technical, he also loves to travel. He's been to 47 states, still not sure how he missed Vermont. He also has a private pilot's license and competed in the American Dart Association's National Championship and finished third in the country for the Team Steel Tip Neutralizer. The WHAT, Glen?
You guessed it, Glen is Maycreate's I.T. Director and a real mechanical genius as well. So beyond HTML, CSS and server side programming, he's equally at home with a 2-cycle, single cylinder Briggs and Stratton.
