George Brymer Chief Creative Officer

George Brymer

Chief Creative Officer

George Brymer has always been inquisitive. It’s likely that his first spoken word as a child was, “Why?” That he’s never outgrown that curiosity is evident in his probing conversations with clients – and in his approach to creativity.

George was previously with The Image Group as its Chief Creative Officer. He’s a former banker and leadership coach. He has a Masters in Organizational Leadership from Lourdes University, and he now serves on the Lourdes board of directors. He also has considerable experience on area nonprofit boards. A part-time author, George has written and published two books.

Away from work, George enjoys golf and boot camp classes. He likes long weekends in Chicago and New York City and posting smart-alecky comments on social media.

Wondering “why” your marketing isn’t getting the results you desire? Call George. He’s got questions – and answers – for you.

Amy Thomas

Amy Thomas comes from a small but close-knit family. When she’s not producing creative magic, Amy enjoys spending time with her parents and sister – or hanging with an extended family that includes her favorite friends.

Amy’s other personal interests include sipping margaritas, watching HGTV, following University of Michigan football, and shopping – but not necessarily in that order.

Erika Miller

Erika Miller

Creative Associate

Erika Miller has some really great things to say. And, as it turns out, she has a lot of ways to express herself.

With a marketing and communications degree from Bowling Green State University, Erika has a passion for writing and public speaking. As our Creative Associate, Erika’s duties include creating and editing explainer videos and developing customer social media campaigns.

Suggesting to Erika that something might be impossible is inadvisable — unless, that is, you enjoy being mistaken. So, while delivering her high school commencement address, Erika encouraged classmates to go forth, change the world, and prove their naysayers wrong. Did we mention she says great things?

Need help communicating your marketing message? You should hear what Erika has to say.
