Brian's copy adds sparkle to our group. His work for category leaders Pepsi, Visa, Skippy, Delta Airlines, and Frito-Lay is well known in the business. His work helped establish Nissan as a credible brand when Toyota and Honda were the only "serious" Japanese automakers. He worked on Continental Airlines' resurrection from bankruptcy. He helped Northern toilet paper take on Charmin, Pizza Hut attack the dominance of Dominos, and U.S. Bank grow from a dinky little regional financial institution to a national powerhouse. Imagine what he could do for you.
