Steve Bernstein, President
To meet Steve is to know why his infectious energy and enthusiasm as company president have been key to continuing Bernstein-Rein’s place as one of the top 10 independent advertising agencies in the country. More than anything, Steve sees his job as guaranteeing quality from the top. He ensures that the agency of over 300 associates and the integrated disciplines which they represent fulfills the commitments made to the agency’s clients. Seeing those clients move forward is something in which he takes great pride.

Advertising and marketing are in Steve’s blood. As a child, he inspired his father to imagine and invent the McDonald’s Happy Meal. After nearly two decades in the business, he has gained the necessary skills and respect to focus an accomplished team of marketing professionals into a potent national marketing partner — one that
drives measurable success and builds strong brands. Steve’s experience and dedication, along with true heart and a zest for life, make him the right leader for Bernstein-Rein.
Dave Lubeck, EVP/Executive Director of Client Services
Dave is responsible for leading the clients and brands the agency serves. He epitomizes the terms “business partner” and “brand steward.” He makes sure that his entire staff acts and feels the same way. Dave believes the only way to excel in business is to have passion. He’s contagious that way and has developed a habit of bringing out the best in everyone around him
Kelli Anstine, SVP/Director of Experience Planning
Kelli has been with the agency for more than 14 years and now heads up our media strategy and experience planning department. She is forever exploring new consumer touch points in the worlds of new media and new technology, as well as always looking for new ways to use traditional media to create new experiences for the customer. Kelli is a 10-year veteran of overseeing all of Wal-Mart’s integrated media programs, and in that time she has experienced enough changes in the media landscape to know how important it is to stay on top of what’s next. She has also worked on accounts such as Ruby Tuesday, USAA, Russell Stover Candies, Bayer Animal Health and the Missouri Lottery.
