Meet the Team. We Call Ourselves "Grovers"


You won't find an agency team to match Idea Grove's. Grovers share a chemistry that is unshakable precisely because it has been hard-won. We're far from perfect as individuals, but we've learned to achieve great things as a team. We have the scars, and the results, to show for it. Those with experience in corporate life know how difficult it is to bridge the natural silos that develop within organizations. Sales and marketing. R&D and operations. Overcoming silos means having tough conversations and challenging strategy sessions.

It means taking care to hire team members who are hungry, humble and smart. At Idea Grove, we put in the work because we know it's worth it. Our achievements show our approach is successful. We boast unified engagements — incorporating PR, web design, content marketing, social media and more — across many of our accounts. This integration ensures brand consistency while greatly improving our efficiency for clients. That is how teamwork makes Idea Grove a better partner for our clients, and a better place to work.
