The visionary creative
Susan is the Simple Truth rock star who has built a career of 20-plus years as a creative director upon intrepid and surprising design. She leads our team with spot-on intuition and spark, and she challenges us to be risk-takers who boldly question the status quo. With her steering the ship, whatever brands she touches are in good hands.
The ace in the hole
Mark is Simple Truth’s larger-than-life lead writer, ECD and secret weapon. Drawing on over 30 years of experience (including at FCB on both sides of the Atlantic), he is an agile and unassuming leader whose mild-mannered temperament belies an inventive and unstoppable spirit that infects everyone his work touches.
The best in class
Simple Truth’s gold standard brings over 20 years of experience and an encyclopedia of solutions every day. Rhonda’s classic style and collaboration skills combine to push clients to greatness. If you ever wonder why we love what we do at Simple Truth, why we’re healthy, why we stay: it’s Rhonda’s influence.
The ST Three
If they had their way, Susan, Mark and Rhonda wouldn’t be at the top of this page. They’d be ordered alphabetically with the rest of us. But they were outnumbered, so they get top billing. Because the rest of us wouldn’t be here and we wouldn’t work the way we work if they hadn’t started something special at Simple Truth.
For over 10 years, our brand activator has shown a consistent ability to generate client-shifting ideas. Steve crafts unexpected and spot-on brand platforms with enthusiasm and energy. He’s one of our biggest thinkers and possesses a vault of understated creative energy.

Our account management ninja is an analytical and in-the-know project manager. Tiffany’s attention to detail and natural style generate momentum at kickoff, and it doesn’t stop until the work is implemented. She keeps us on task. She cheers us on. She always has our back.
Our resident MFA word wrangler is a creative strategist first and foremost. For over 15 years, Claudine has effortlessly harnessed her clients’ spirit. She can tackle projects that are big in scope and complexity, and she transforms them into meaningful, simply expressed stories.
The selfless sophistication
If there’s a project with everything on the line, you’ll want this guy designing it. We don’t have the science to back this up, but we’re pretty sure Scott’s mere presence rewires brains in a perspective-shifting, brand-changing way. Whenever there’s a challenge to be met, he cannonballs into it.
Sharon’s gift is eliminating the unnecessary so the necessary can speak. She energizes and inspires her team to create and craft words that perfectly fit the brand. Others think outside the box. For more than 25 years, Sharon has been turning boxes upside down and giving them a good shake.
The life of the party
Simple Truth’s living, breathing one-liner generator, Jason keeps us in stitches and his clients awestruck by the power and truth in his words. Drawing on 15 years of experience, he’ll boldly drop the mic after a legendary line, and he’ll take you by surprise with his heart of gold.

With degrees from both coasts and top-shelf agency and consulting experience, we look to Mande for guidance, professionalism and thoughtful leadership. Her glass is always half-full, and her diplomatic demeanor is a steady influence on her clients and co-workers.
The culture creator
With over 20 years of accounting experience, Janice gives us influential financial leadership. And with a masters in kinesiology, it’s no accident that our lunchtime personal training sessions are encouraged. She hears us and steers us, and shapes our future with care.
The humble hero
Is the Internet down? Are the printers acting up? Does someone in the office have a problem of any kind? Cesar is on it. Plus, he’s Apple-certified and skilled in web development, print production and color management. His steady demeanor reminds us daily: “Keep calm. Just reboot.”
He’s a senior statesman of our original design team. He's a ready-to-help answer machine. He might be a superhero. To work with Mick on a project is to know that consistent leadership and authoritative design are taken care of. He’s simply the best.
The first impression
It was the strangest thing. A little while back, stuff just started getting done around here. Why wasn’t anyone taking credit? Turns out it was because of Maura. Want someone with an unrelenting work ethic, a willingness to serve and a genuine aura of humility? Well, you can’t have her. She’s ours.
Ina is an adventurer who always chooses to swim in untested waters, and she solves complex problems so happily that it’s almost infuriating. She harnesses fearless experimentation, an MA in linguistics (and a second BA in design) and an effortless eye to create dynamic digital work.
