ABOUT US

Push Boundaries. Leverage Technology. Embrace Trends.

We are problem solvers

We believe great brands are built on two-way conversations. For over 30 years, this collaborative approach has been vital to success in everything we do, be it advertising, public relations, digital content, traditional media, social media or public involvement. Exemplary communication guides all interactions with our clients, our audiences and our team.

The one thing we’ve reinforced over and over again through the years is that we aren’t an awards-driven agency. It’s not that we don’t win awards—we’ve won plenty and have appreciated the recognition, but the real reward is successful client relationships with effective results.

Sure you’ll get creative and a media buy with another ad agency but with Penna Powers you get well thought-out strategic campaigns, a team that truly cares about your organization’s success, listens to your input and is genuinely honest. We all love what we do and you can feel that when you walk in the door.

Marc Stryker

VP Channel and Content Management

When you meet with our team at Penna Powers, you may not figure out who does what, and that's by design. I love how we tackle a client's problems holistically, no matter the tools or disciplines that will be needed to get the job done. We speak a language that is all about solutions, not acronyms.

Stephanie Miller

VP Account Planning and Management

The moment you finish presenting a campaign plan, the clients’ enthusiasm is electric and they say, “I love it! It’s bold, it’s smart, I can’t wait to get started.” That is why we do what we do. It’s the Penna Powers way.

Traci Houghton

VP Finance and Operations

Since I founded Penna Powers 35 years ago we've always been driven to find the best people to produce the best work and have fun along the way. I'm very proud of our amazing leadership team.

Brent Wilhite

New Business Director

We're curious by nature. We like to figure out what's wrong with the way you've been doing things; why you aren't seeing the results you expect and what's the core problem. Then we attack it with precision and ferocity.

Wendy Hansen

Account Planning Director

When you truly understand an audience's hopes and desires, you start to understand how to influence their behaviors.

Kenny Hammond

Creative Director

Penna Powers tackles each project understanding that great campaigns are not limited to the biggest brands with the biggest budgets. Any brand, organization or cause can generate work that is engaging, thought-provoking and relevant.
