Eva’s background in advertising, branding and design gives her unique perspective on bringing multichannel campaigns to life in-store. She’s partnered with T-Mobile, Microsoft and GoSmart to create experiences in both flagship and fleet stores. For the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, she produced events in New York, Kenya, India and Davos centered around global health and development. And while Eva is a classically trained actor, she’s so good at this job she’s never even had to work as a waiter.
Commerce Practice Coordinator
That’s Kereszturi, pronounced Care-A-Stir-E. See, Maddy knows how to make complicated things simple. As a PM at Crispin Porter Bogusky, she spearheaded notable, PR-worthy campaigns and projects for clients including Domino’s, Michelob Ultra, American Airlines, and Fruit of the Loom. As a past cheerleader herself, Maddy also leads the social media team for the world’s most prestigious Three-Day cheerleading competition, The Cheerleading Worlds. And yep, she can do a mean backflip herself.

He’s also a classically trained chef (and possibly an overachiever.) Reach out to Steve anytime if you’d like to to talk mise en place or the future retail.
