Meet our leaders

Ellen Cook

Chief Executive Officer

I thrive when I see people having the courage to step outside of their comfort zone, stretch and grow beyond their own expectations. Knowing that our agency’s work has a meaning, and a lasting impact drives me each morning. And how do I see Integer? As a company filled with highly talented individuals that are laser-focused on continually exploring, evolving and innovating with an eye on growth. For our clients, our communities, our people.

Gail Obaseki

VP, Head of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

I thrive being a catalyst of change, surrounded by so many people ready to make changes. Great work that works means creative that is stunningly innovative and results-driven. But most importantly, it offers solutions incorporating diverse worldviews. Ensuring that a wider variety of humans are no longer ignored but see themselves reflected in our marketing efforts. How do I face challenges? I prepare as best I can, then whisper a short prayer and jump into the fray with both feet!

Sci-fi and mythology fan.

Each day, I’m driven by the collaborative spirit of being better together. We have some amazing, diverse, talented individuals that come together to make something bigger than any individual. To me, The Growth Company means change is mandatory. To grow is to evolve into something new, different and better. I am fueled by the idea of growing with our clients, with our people and with the communities that we live in every day. The best way to face a challenge? Head on. Listen first, then put your focus on creative solutions.

Mike Sweeney


One of my favorite quotes is: “Live each day as if you’ll die tomorrow, learn each day as if you’ll live forever.” How does it apply to work? Show up, every day. Be human. Have fun. Listen. Encourage ideas and leadership from all levels. What drives me every day is our people, our clients and the brands they represent. It’s solving problems, doing great work and developing a culture that attracts both talent and clients. We run our company with a growth mindset. And if we do it well, our clients, our people and our communities will benefit.​

More on Sweeney:
Challenge embracer.
Everyday teacher and learner.

Dani Coplen

Executive Creative Director

Purpose is important. It fuels resilience, the most vital survival skill in advertising.I majored in Marketing. Having that business education has been the “x factor” in my creative career because I understood the “why” behind the work. When it comes to great work, It’s not creative for creative’s sake. Everything we do is created with the end in mind – driving sales of our clients’ products and brands. Some good advice for creative peeps? Be a pro. Yes, this is a creative, fun, exciting business. But drive, accountability and leadership count just as much as talent.​

Stubborn with a cause.
Novelist in the making, children’s book creator.

Marc Ducnuigeen

Chief Operating Officer

How do I thrive? By knowing no two days are ever alike, that there are interesting problems to solve, and that I will be surrounded by so many people who are immensely talented and fun. It never gets old for me. At The Growth Company, we’ve built an organization that recognizes commerce is the glue that ties everything together. Along the way, I’ve built networks and products, traveled millions of miles, worked crazy hours, and loved the people and related fun at every part of the journey.​

More on Duc:
Highly competitive.
Loyal to a fault.
Legitimately enjoys air travel.

John Kiker


For me, the two most powerful words to getting to great work are “what if.” Great work is the one that is beautifully created, through intuitive commerce experiences that are demonstrably effective. ​

I believe passion and work ethic always serve you well. Creating the conditions for my people to do the best work drives me each morning. How do I grow my clients’ business? By staying present and investing my time with what’s ahead. In this new reality of constant change, we ground our mission in a shared purpose.​

Jan Gittemeier

Chief Financial Officer

I thrive when helping my beloved coworkers as we achieve goals and solve problems. As an Integerite since year one, I’ve taught countless teammates to always view solutions through a filter of integrity and authenticity. What does The Growth Company mean to me? A company focused on the growth of our clients and our employees, both financially and as an industry and community leader. I’m proud to be part of an agency that encourages curiosity and demands integrity, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

More on Jan:
Inspired by excellence.
Loves the Integer family.
Boomer Sooner.

Jim McKinnis

Chief Creative Officer

Helping others thrive is what drives me. That, and always asking “What if?” It’s an attitude that leads to Great Work That Works. What’s that mean? GREAT WORK THAT WORKS IS ALWAYS CREATIVE, CLEVER AND INNOVATIVE. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, WORK THAT DRIVES RESULTS. Throughout my journey, I’ve always tried to have purpose and to keep learning. From brand to shopper to CRM to data to social and now to commerce — it’s the evolution of shopper and brand that allows me to draw upon all of that learning to help change the world every day.

More on Jim:
Introvert who’s learned to fake it.
Big foodie/wine guy.

Lawrence Godfrey

Chief Strategy Officer

Being The Growth Company means we are making a promise about growth. For sales, share and profitability for our clients. For more traffic, spend and frequency for our retail partners. For proactive development and progression of our people. Fortunately for me, I get to work with a wildly talented team that’s as driven as I am to unlock unrealized value growth for our clients. My advice to someone just starting out: Build trust, create value and focus on the few things that matter most.

British. (Quite.)
Avid whisky collector.

Steve White

Chief Commerce Officer

To me, being The Growth Company means we think beyond the assignment. By leveraging our experience and expertise, we’re able to deliver solutions instead of projects. It also positions us as a partner in our client’s business instead of just a service provider. My advice when facing a challenge? Start with a positive attitude and dose of reality. Then break it down into manageable parts and go about working on those with an eye toward the ultimate goal.

David Motter

Executive Creative Director

I have a pet peeve. It’s when people (usually creatives) say they “just want to make cool shit.” Who doesn’t? The issue is, “cool” alone doesn’t grow our client’s business or help people thrive. It has to be smart, strategic and insightful. It has to be great work that actually works. Only then can it be really cool shit. Which is what I want to make.

Creative problem solver.
Painter (canvas, not houses).
