What makes a great team? 

Trust. Respect. Leadership. Probably some other shit like that.

 

Truth is, we don't know why we work so well together. There is a special kind of magic that happens when you get the right mix of divergent and overlapping skills. A talented mix of individuals looking for the biggest challenges out there.
 

We are kind of like the Avengers of marketing, but maybe without Hawkeye, who's cool and all, but c'mon dude, you have a bow and arrow.

Andrew "Ike" Iacovelli
Creative specialist

Origin Story:

After accidentally discovering an "Intergalactic Distress Signal" buried deep within the settings of his Canon 60D, Ike became the humanoid creative conduit for a conquering alien race at the far reaches of the Milkey Way. The commute was the woooorst. While exposed to advanced creative technologies and techniques several thousand years in the future, being wrapped in sweaty life-sucking tentacles for several hours at a time has its downsides. When the warranty on the 60D ran out, the aliens stopped abducting him. Funny how that happens. Looking for that thrill of lightspeed, Ike hooked up with FireTeam, which fortunately has a strict "don't ask" policy when it comes to tentacle scars.
Superpowers: Method editing

Weakness: Only dates actresses

Alter ego: A grown up theatre kid and retired actor, Ike still yearns for that breakthrough role that will re-ignite his career as the "Morgan Freeman of Facebook ads".

Nicolle Valladares
Social Strategist

Origin Story:

In the quirky desolate planet of Gen-Z, Nicolle was the first to prove the existence of a One Directional Styles-Rosen bridge. Stepping through the portal and making eye contact with pre-teen Zayn Malik, she developed the superpower of generational omnipotence and a fear of Enouement. After guiding one of the top social media companies through planet Gen-Z she defeated her one-time master in Meme-al Kombat and joined FireTeam to make content appear out of thin air. Nicolle eats more culture for breakfast than even the most annoying kombucha people on tiktok.
Superpowers:

Psychicness, memeability, pop culture knowledge, obscure boyband references
Weakness:

Must check every notification immediately
Alter ego:

A certified cool gal, Nicolle spends her precious hours watching grown men drive around in circles for two hours, finding the best grocery store ice cream, and existentially dreading adulthood.

Erin Elliott
Operations Manager

Origin Story:

As a child playing on the snowy hills in Maine, Erin was kissed by an interdimensional moose and acquired the powers to tame the multiverse... and antlers. The antlers have been removed, but the get-shit-done-multiverse-tracking project manager skills remained. A theater kid most of her life, Erin lived the struggling actor life until stumbling into the ad agency world over 8 years ago, where she took all her organization skills and used them for good (debatable). After a few years running production for national clients, Erin was tapped to run ops at FireTeam. She still searches the multi-verse for moose tracks.
Superpowers:

Creative Whisperer, Timeline guru, Can land a plane safely & on time every single time (metaphorically), To-do list wizard
Weakness:

Leads with her emotions (she's an actor remember).
Alter ego:

The boo boo kisser, munchkin’ tickler mama to her two sweet babes and teammate/wife to her ever-patient, wonderful husband. An actor, reality TV show addict, and certified postpartum doula with the F-word tattooed on her body because... reasons.

Rachyl Jackson

Media Director

Origin Story:

While in college, Rachyl signed up for a lab experiment that fused her with the Dataract, an ancient artifact deposited in North Carolina by the Galactic Spreadsheet. While only paid $45, she was left with remarkable powers of deduction and optimization. Having spent her lab money on a single sixer of ultra-bespoke beer, she took up a career in advertising to fund her habits. After running all media at an award-winning agency, the Dataract called her once again to the path of performance marketing and she started FireTeam. As Media Director Supreme she manages millions in adspend across platforms, fosters a culture of results-oriented creative, and occasionally responds to SOS signals from the Galactic Spreadsheet itself.
Superpowers:

Tele-reportation, Optimize eyes, Creative pattern matching, Up for anything if you ask three times.

Weakness:

Imposter syndrome
Alter ego:

A beer brewing woman of the high knitting arts, Rachyl can often be found taking her Australian shepherd Freya for long walks on the street, or catching the latest travel shows with her partner, remembering what life was like before Covid.

Niki Brazier

Client Management Director

On her 5th birthday, Niki found an old video camera in a tortoise-shaped sandbox. Upon taking off the lends cap, she released Fuldheim's Ghost, an ancient spirit that took quickly took possession of Niki and guided her to a career as a TV news reporter and anchor. After a decade of honing her skills of communication and relationship management, Niki finally replaced the old lens cap and once again trapped Fuldheim's Ghost for another 96 years. Even though she occasionally re-visits her old haunts as a sideline reporter at live sporting events, Niki turned her attention towards advertising - where she's used her skills to soothe spirited clients like New Balance and Gatorade.

"In a world where everyone's uncle is a Facebook advertiser, there lived an agency forged from the flames of Valhalla. So powerful that no social media algorithm could ever defeat them. But seriously, FireTeam is the best there is. I'm always in awe of their creative approach and the strategies they come up with for the brands they work with."
