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
FINANCE DIRECTOR 

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).

EMILY CRAFTS
TRAFFIC MANAGER/ADMINISTRATOR

When Emily’s new desk arrived, she assembled it herself—a prime example of her take-charge work ethos. Combine that with some seriously pro organizational skills and an academic background in marketing, and we’ve got a pretty stellar traffic manager/administrator on our hands. When not keeping the team on track, Emily challenges herself by weight lifting, hiking, or tackling a DIY project. (She’s also a veritable encyclopedia of Marvel-movie knowledge, if you ever have any questions.)

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
DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR

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.

HANG TRAN
SENIOR GRAPHIC DESIGNER

Don’t tell our copywriters this, but Hang Tran has a secret: when you create effective visual storytelling through design, you may not even need words. A lifelong interest in art and a desire to work in comic book illustration led Hang down the path of graphic design—and she’s never looked back. An artist at her core, Hang found herself at Six-Point after years of working at a local design agency curating creative for national brands whose products you probably have in your home. When she’s not creating the next great design or artistic sketch (which, let’s be honest, is often), you’ll find Hang skating around the roller derby flat track or getting her fix of live music.

MARGARET ANN GOMEZ
GRAPHIC DESIGNER/PRODUCTION

Margaret Ann’s aha moment happened when she realized her lifelong interest in art and graphics had a professional track: produce artistic work by making an idea come to life and earn a living doing it. With nearly 20 years of experience as both an art director and freelance graphic designer, Margaret Ann has helped concepts evolve from a rough pencil sketch to a rich brand identity. Although she’s known in our office for her super speedy turnaround, don’t let it fool you—quantity never takes precedence over quality in her book. A devoted wife to her high- school sweetheart and a self-described “hockey mom” to two boys, Margaret Ann’s family keeps her just as busy as her work.

AMANDA LEVY
CLIENT ADVOCATE

You know those people you meet who make you feel like you’ve known them forever? We know the feeling; our newest client advocate, Amanda, is one of ‘em. A people-person through and through with a sharp mind for relationship-building and helping clients elevate and grow their business, Amanda holds a degree in psychology from Mt. Holyoke College, and came to Six-Point with a background in product development and marketing. If you see her outside the office (and it will literally be outside), she’ll most likely be partaking in some of her favorite activities: horseback riding, golf, and skiing, to name a few. Combine her amazing personality and passions, and Amanda is exactly the kind of advocate you want on your team. Luckily she’s on ours—which also means she’ll be on yours.

TYLER LEAHY
CREATIVE 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 creative strategist. 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.

ALLIE EGAN-SHERRY
SENIOR COPYWRITER

Where do great writers get all of their wonderful words? Not from the dictionary so much as at the dictionary. Allie Egan-Sherry comes to Six-Point Creative from Merriam-Webster’s marketing department, where she promoted—among other things—the Word of the Day. (Her personal favorite? “Lagniappe.” Totally worth looking up.) But what made it really clear that she’s Six-Point material is her moonlighting gig, maintaining a well-supported Facebook profile for her polydactyl cat Pringle Sugarloaf (the primary author and a true feline gourmand) and Pringle’s little sister Pingüini (strictly a guest blogger). Her academic work at Clark University also prepared her for Six-Point life, where she studied the nexus of communication and culture. When not wordsmithing, Allie keeps herself up to speed on up-and-coming indie rock bands, playing coed softball, and turning “awkward” into a compliment.

MJ HYNDMAN-BENANDER
DIRECTOR OF CLIENT SERVICES

“Where in the World is MJ Hyndman-Benander?” would be an appropriate title for MJ’s autobiography. As an expat from Manila, Philippines, with more than 20 years of global work experience, she brings a worldly understanding to account planning and management. And as our director of client services, her affable personality make her extremely comfortable meeting new clients and understanding their company’s current status, future objectives, and what makes them tick. When not introducing our clients to the Six-Point family, you’ll find MJ challenging her culinary skills by cooking up exotic cuisines she’s tasted during her travels or indulging in wanderlust—whether crossing hemispheres or simply trying a new restaurant in her current home of Western MA.
