THE SIX-POINT TEAM

Six-Point Creative is a brand-development agency with special focus on working with second-stage entrepreneurs. And what better way for you to get to know our team than to get a glimpse into the stuff that makes us tick?

So, here you have it. This is us.

MARSHA MONTORI
CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER

There are few aspects of marketing, branding, and advertising that Marsha Montori has not studied, modified, and mastered. And while her career began on the creative side of our industry, she now finds herself most passionate about honing marketing strategies that help businesses grow and prosper … much to Six-Point’s benefit, and our clients. In fact, if you get her too deep in a conversation about brand development, you may miss out on hearing about her other passions, including travel, creative writing, and—most recently—the decorated French caves of Lascaux. Ask; she may not offer (another winsome quality).

MEGHAN LYNCH
PRESIDENT AND CEO

Meghan Lynch is all in. A tenacious long-distance runner. A thoughtful parent. And no less the visionary in her business. Among her roundtable leadership groups, she is known as the one who spends more time on the business than in the business, which is precisely what makes her strategic thinking for clients so incisive and informed. As Six-Point Creative prepared for its second decade, Meghan transformed her own experience as a second-stage entrepreneur into an opportunity to provide expertise to other growth-minded business owners facing the same challenges. From her work and deep listening with the Women President’s Organization, the Family Business Center, and the Goldman Sach’s 10,000 Small Business program, she brings business strategy to our brand strategy—and therein lies the difference.

DAVID WICKS
CHIEF CREATIVE OFFICER

David Wicks had been doodling graphic designs for years before learning that it had a name — and that he could make it a living. Since that early revelation, David built a career designing and art directing for top brands (e.g., Guinness, Finast, Hyde Tools, his daughter’s wedding invitations) before founding his own agency in 2007. Although he holds particular interest in editorial design, David also takes pride in keeping his style fluid and adaptable from brand to brand. Apart from ridding the world of pointless design, David enjoys working with his hands, camping and hiking in the great outdoors, and spending time with his five grandchildren. If you’re looking for an icebreaker, ask him about his trip to London to see Mott the Hoople.

LYNNE TURNER
OPERATIONS MANAGER

Among Lynne’s many passions (and she has several), is the task of turning creative concepts into numbers on a spreadsheet—an invaluable skill for an agency of creatives. A self-described type-A personality, Lynne turns her penchant for multitasking into an operational machine, managing finances and project details, while still finding time to keep our office pups loved and well fed. She’s a Mainer at heart, and never feels more at home than when she’s crossing the Piscataqua Bridge. She eases her type-A soul with Jane Austen novels and planning her next family vacation (which she also manages to turn into a spreadsheet).

SHERRIL GAGNE
FINANCE MANAGER AND MEDIA BUYER

They say that opposites attract, and that may define Sherril’s relationship with agency life. A self-defined numbers person with an inexhaustible eye for detail, Sherril also relishes being surrounded by the creative energy (and occasional chaos) inherent to life at Six-Point. And though she may deny it, some of our best creative ideas over the years have come from her data-filled brain. Her creative self also comes to bear in her garden, where she cultivates a world of mandevillas and peonies—and then sits back with her husband Bill and watches birds and critters make it home.

SCOTT WHITNEY
CREATIVE DIRECTOR

As a past journalist and copywriter, Scott brings a strong background in language, worships at the altar of great design, and understands that when the two are thoughtfully married, great brand identities are born (or a Jasper Johns painting). He leads the charge in solving our client's business objectives — including brand development —with strategically informed art and copy. If he were writing this, he might quote Jean Cocteau in saying, "Style is a simple way of saying complicated things." When not in the office, Scott is challenging his introversion with friends or spending time with his two dogs.

LAURA BROWN
CREATIVE SERVICES MANAGER

Project management may not have been Laura’s childhood aspiration, but when you’re good, you’re good. With an academic background in public relations and sociology, and professional experience in nonprofit work and marketing, Laura brings a rare blend of communication skills and emotional intelligence to her role as creative services manager. To keep it interesting, she enjoys travel, photography, and rock climbing with her husband Tim—who may or may not be better at it than her.

KYLE ANDERSON
ART DIRECTOR

For Kyle, work consists of all the moments he’s not designing (we’re looking at you, meetings). Inspired by groundbreaking artists like James Victore and Paula Scher, he keeps his finger on the pulse of emerging design trends with a view to integrating them into our client’s work. Kyle spearheads our brand work, balancing consistency with brand identities that can evolve over time. When not proselytizing about the value of simple design (or grousing about bad type), Kyle is most likely deep, deep in the Oregonian woods with his wife and daughter.

MEGHAN MASON
SENIOR GRAPHIC DESIGNER

Meghan spent her academic career immersed in printmaking and a menagerie of otherwise useless skills—eventually wrangling her talents into a paying career as a graphic designer, pedaling her creative skills in New York City for more than five years before returning to agency life in western Massachusetts. When she’s not knee deep in a new logo design, Meghan travels with her future husband throughout New England in pursuit of the next great culinary discovery. They have a dog named Goose and you need to meet him.

CAROLINA OSSA
CLIENT ADVOCATE AND RESEARCH STRATEGIST

An academic background in neuroscience and cultural studies may not be obvious skillsets for a client advocate, but it allows Carolina to bring a distinctive perspective to the table. Driven by a nearly cellular-level curiosity, she revels in meeting her clients’ long-term objectives with research and strategy, and helping them build a dynamic brand, project by project. So, what does a strategic thinker do in her spare time? Skydiving, dirt biking, and painting with acrylics, of course.

TYLER LEAHY
CLIENT ADVOCATE AND CONTENT STRATEGIST

Tyler Leahy is that rarest of breed: a writer with a truly winsome personality (a writer obviously wrote this). After cutting his teeth as a beat journalist, Tyler discovered his hidden ability in helping businesses identify— and achieve—their objectives through carefully honed messaging. He cites his background as a reporter as the source of his love for inquiry and research—core qualities in a great client advocate. When he’s not busy employing impeccable diction, Tyler spends time with his brother and best friend (one and the same), going to shows, taking in hockey games, and gorging themselves on chips and salsa. He wants to recommend the American writer Nick Flynn, because he’s thoughtful like that.

VANESSA COOK
CLIENT ADVOCATE

How do you create a great client advocate? Give a journalism major a job at InStyle magazine right out of college. Then see to it that they work as a fashion stylist assistant in NYC. Put them in charge of men’s global PR for Cole Haan. Send them to the ski slopes of Colorado for six months (all work and no play, etc.) and then back to the east coast for eight years of freelance work. You start there. But then, in the interest of being well-rounded, you see to it that they are well-traveled, mother to two amazing boys, and a voracious reader of novels ranging from chic-lit to dense historical fiction. Yeah, we’ve got one of those. Her name’s Vanessa. You should meet her.
