Who could be a better and more creative leader than a loving dad named Jon with nine brilliant, curious, and amazing kids? No one. You can take our word on this one.
Thanks to the remarkable vision and leadership of our beloved Art Director, Jon Feagain, every visual asset our digital marketing agency creates is not just a design, but is “by design”. A visual storyteller at heart, Jon’s artistic approach goes well beyond aesthetics but more importantly, it revolves around essence and function — creating enduring, authentic, and award-winning designs for our B2B clients. Jon believes that art and imagery are powerful mediums for influence and engagement. This is why Jon works closely with the agency’s marketing team to create highly-strategized designs that deliver an impact.
Jon enjoys widening his artistic scope through learning and experimentation. Through his creative leadership, Adhere’s design team continue to discover and master branding strategies using different styles and mediums, keeping a leading edge for the agency’s clients.
Client Delighter, Chief Firefighter, and Ringmaster of the Adhere Circus, Adam Marquardt is Adhere’s Director of Marketing. After his agency was acquired by Adhere he joined the team to focus on continuing to craft award-winning campaigns, getting the right people in the right seats, and evolving the agency for the next era. When he’s not dreaming of all things strategy, he’s brainstorming the direction of the company over a glass of bourbon (for creative inspiration of course).
A proud foodie and BBQ enthusiast, a thought-leader and a sales person by nature, Daniel defines success in all things as a journey and not a destination. Daniel, who is responsible for the new client on-boarding process, sets well thought-out proposals for services specifically tailored for the prospective client. He aims at analyzing the real issue a client may have and presents them with the best solution.
If Daniel could offer one quick piece of advice to businesses considering inbound marketing, he'd tell them: "Inbound marketing is about educating your target market as opposed to interrupting them. Positioning your company as a thought leader will naturally get people to come to you. And who doesn't want more qualified leads coming to their door."
A true nerd at heart, Kirsten Squires is Adhere's resident wordsmith and grammar enforcer.

Sharp shootin', bourbon drinkin', good grub cookin', President of Adhere, Mr. Nathan Yerian, is the strategic brain behind Adhere Creative. Always aiming at success, Nathan is the unrelenting force behind innovative marketing campaigns for the agency and its clients.
