Marty DonohuePartner, Creative Director
There is one simple reason to explain the success Marty’s had in his twenty-plus years of advertising; he truly loves what he does.
It shows in the award-winning work he creates, the brands he champions, the relationships he fosters, and the terrific agency he is helping to build.
Marty, along with his creative partner of almost twenty years, Tim Foley, oversees all the creative and production work done at Full Contact.
His brand experience runs far and deep and includes Cumberland Farms, Zipcar, Safety 1st, Disney, Dunkin’ Donuts, Anheuser-Busch, Calvin Klein, CVS, Marshalls, Arbella, John Hancock, Lotus, Fleet Bank, Boston.com, Star Market, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, and Top-Flite.
Before opening Full Contact, Marty spent eleven years at Hill Holliday, where he eventually rose to the rank of Executive Creative Director.
When he’s not working, Marty and his wife, Marea, live vicariously through their three off-the-wall twenty-something children, but still manage to be in bed by 10:30.
Jen MaltbyChief Strategy Officer
Less than a minute into our very first meeting with her, we wanted to hire Jen. Her impeccable credentials spoke for themselves, but the minute Jen started speaking we knew we found the perfect person to head up our strategic planning department. She wasn’t just an excellent strategic thinker and doer; she was an awesome person, too.
Jen has a remarkable ability to boil down a staggering amount of information, analysis and consumer feedback into a simple, compelling strategic insight. Her background in consumer research and brand planning offers a unique perspective on how and when to tap into the consumer to inspire great work. Jen’s innovative way of thinking and brand storytelling has benefited a host of national and global brands throughout her career, including Bank of America, Kraft Foods, Heinz, Intercontinental Hotels, Tyson, ESPN, Eddie Bauer and Stop & Shop.
And she does it all with great humor and great humanity. Which is why we actually did hire her pretty much after that first minute.
Kate SumnerDirector of Finance & Operations
One of the things that surprises people about our ad agency is how well run we are as a business. A lot of the credit for that distinction goes to Kate Sumner, our Director of Finance & Operations.
Kate makes sure we are always running a tight ship for ourselves as well as our clients. She also keeps a sharp eye on our accounting, billing, contracts, administration and day-to-day operations.
She is a true expert in her craft. Before she joined Full Contact she spent 22 years at Hill Holliday, one of the best run agencies in the country. Kate spent most of her time there as VP Controller. She is an absolute pro at what she does, and we are thrilled that she is such an essential part of our team.
Liz HenniganDirector of Creative Services
If there was a PHD in Getting Things Done, Liz would have earned hers a very long time ago.
Liz is the heart and soul of all things creative and production around here. The ultimate multi-tasker, she is in charge of virtually the entire workflow generated throughout the company; everything from digital banners to websites to packaging to POP to fully integrated campaigns.
When she’s not doing that she is responsible for managing scopes, staffing plans, schedules, budgets, timesheets, and recruitment.
When she’s not doing that she spends her time encouraging, supporting, advising and (when necessary) ridiculing the various personalities within the creative department.
Prior to joining Full Contact, Liz spent many years working her organizational magic at Arnold Worldwide, where she ultimately rose to the position of Marketing Operations Director for Carnival Cruise Line, Volvo, New Balance and American Eagle Outfitters.
In whatever little spare time Liz has, her wildly diverse musical tastes keep her busy on the local concert scene, as does her startling affection for Reality TV.
We are so happy she’s part of our family; the part that makes us all better at what we do.
Allison BensonDirector of Brand Development
Great marketer. Great partner. Great listener. Great leader. Oh, and a really great person too. Just a few of the many reasons Allison Benson is such a phenomenal Director of Brand Development here at Full Contact.
For over 20 years, Allison has built an outstanding career around her ability to forge relationships, provide indispensable strategic leadership, elevate brand value, and direct high-impact integrated campaigns for clients across multiple categories.
She’s championed brands as diverse as BJ’s Wholesale Club, New Balance, Novartis, Covidien, and everything in between. Her ability to dig deep and become an expert in the categories she works on has made Allison as proficient in the world of hard charging retail as she is in health sciences.
Allison lives in Canton with her husband Michael and three wildly active teen-agers. When she’s not glued to her seat at Gillette Stadium for Patriot games or absorbed in yet another awesome Netflix series, you can find her running through the neighborhoods of Canton with her massive great dane Bella and her more conveniently sized lab Jackson.
