Dan Santy

President & CEO

Even after 30+ years in the business, Dan Santy didn’t demand a corner suite. In fact, he had his office built smack-dab in the middle of the agency. And frankly, it couldn’t be more appropriate, because Dan is truly the hub of the agency that bears his name. When he’s not cheerleading, ranting, strategizing or running through the hallways yelling, “Change is constant!”, he’s reading up on the latest marketing tools and techniques, and discovering new ways to integrate them into smart, insightful plans for clients. Dan is famous for his 5AM workouts, notorious for his long-winded speeches, and admired for his fabulous wardrobe picked out, of course, by his lovely wife, Liza.
