Discretionary Comments:
Our staff is made up of big agency talent who got tired of the big agency bull. We roll up our sleeves and work hands on with our clients. The team you meet at the pitch is the same team you'll work with every day. MBB is smart, genuine, hard-working.
Phil Bressler, Partner
Phil’s the Bressler in Muller Bressler Brown. As partner, he provides long-range strategic vision for both MBB and our clients. If anyone should know what clients expect from an agency, it’s Phil. He was the client while at Quaker State. It’s his experience working with agencies that have made him so effective working for them. He understands the importance of hands-on strategic leadership and transparent collaboration. On the agency side, Phil spent more than 20 years working with larger shops on a variety of national brands, including McDonald’s, Pepsi and Sonic. Phil’s a graduate of the University of Kansas.
Jim Brown, Partner
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.
Denny Meier, Partner/CFO
Denny’s our money guy. He balances our budget. Pays our bills. Plans our financial future. Denny joined MBB in 2005. Prior to that he spent 20 years as CFO for Entercom Kansas City Radio and One Voice, a broadcast service start-up. As a CPA, he’s naturally a numbers man. As our CFO, he’s an integral part of our success. And as a partner, he’s a great leader, keeping us financially responsible while still letting us buy toys now and then – like the pool table we recently got. Denny was also instrumental in the design and building of our office. Denny’s a graduate of Pittsburg State University, where he earned a BA in Business Administration/Accounting.
