Grant Copeland

PRESIDENT / CHIEF CREATIVE OFFICER

For many of the agency's top client partners, Grant leads marketing strategy, branding and content development with an all-in approach. He's not just shaking hands and kissing babies; he's doing the work.

A Top Creative

Grant was named one of Graphic Design USA magazine's People to Watch as "someone who is helping shape the design profession."

Grant was selected to The 25 List by Connecticut Creatives as one of the state's top marketing communications creatives.

Grant is obsessed with sushi. Ob-sessed. He admits to dreaming of eating it every meal – or having it intravenously put into his body.

Grant and his daughter Ella co-chaired the second-highest grossing campaign in United Way of Greater Waterbury history.

Grant has been a youth basketball and baseball coach for several years, teaching kids the fundamentals of each sport – and of sportsmanship.
