By Ted and Mike

The team at Park & Battery is growing – and it’s growing fast! In the last few weeks alone, many new and exceptionally talented professionals have joined us in key roles across the agency – from Head of Media to VP of Creative Services. We’re proud to welcome them to Park & Battery. Read on to learn more about our talented new teammates and how they’ll help support our clients’ success.

Adi Hamou, Head of Media

Adi leads Park & Battery’s media strategy, planning and buying practice, with more than a decade of experience in paid advertising and SEO.

From awareness to conversions and everything in between, Adi has supported some of the world’s most well-known brands, including Nike, Lyft, Amazon Prime Video, DC Kids, Ryan’s World, Target, Walmart, Netflix and Kraft. Adi loves to talk all things media, from tech and analytics to content development. Whether brands are ready to launch or are looking to level up their current audience base, Adi has helped brands successfully expand their following.

“I love that my job pushes me to learn. The media/ad landscape is ever-changing and evolving, and there’s always something new to read up on.”

Alex Douangdara, Senior Art Director

Alex is an award-winning Senior Art Director with a focus on digital: designing websites, digital experiences, branding, video, and social.

Alex is based in Salt Lake City and brings nearly a decade of agency experience to Park & Battery. Passionate about all things design, he has worked on some of the world’s most recognizable brands, such as Verizon, Cisco, USPS, and Reebok.

“Everyone here is super knowledgeable, so I’m looking forward to learning from everyone and growing myself as well.”

Daniel Santos, VP, Creative Services

Dan oversees print and digital production, bringing more than twenty-five years of experience to Park & Battery and our clients.

Dan has worked extensively with some of the most recognizable B2B and B2C brands in the world, including Boeing, WeightWatchers, Coca-Cola, Bacardi, Heineken and Ferguson. A graduate of Syracuse University with a B.F.A. in Advertising Design, Dan has been at the forefront of the internet and digital advertising revolution from its very beginnings. While his initial background was engrained in print, he has mastered multiple forms of digital ad production and excels in adapting to its constant evolution – from digital/mobile display and rich media to marketing automation assets to video and other forms of digital multimedia.

“Starting an agency (or any business) from scratch is an incredibly exciting and fulfilling opportunity to do things right from the beginning and not fall into the usual bureaucratic nonsense that comes with working for existing, old-school companies with their own philosophies. Park & Battery allows me (and us) to create our own philosophies on how we want to live and work.”

Brianna Edwardson, Senior Account Manager

Brianna is an experienced client services leader and a multi-published photographer, with an eye for the details and a passion for creating breakthrough work with her clients.

Brianna has spent her professional career providing clarity, leadership and strategic support to multi-marketing channels ranging from politics, tourism, health and technology. Her work extends from the East and West coast with recognizable accounts such as the State of Utah, the Executive Office of Governor Snyder, CVS Health as well as Aetna.

“Creating relationships and building trust with clients has always been my favorite experience. Being able to help cultivate a campaign, bringing it to life and having the client feel heard, seen and understood gives me such a lift.”
