Leadership

John Fox

JOHN FOX
Director of Operations, Partner
With over 20 years’ experience in the industry, John has certainly learned every trick of the trade. Whether it’s a small street stunt or a multi-city national tour, John ensures that programs are operating safely, efficiently, on time and on budget. This industry veteran has bragging rights with just about every recognizable brand in the book, but don’t expect to hear about it from him…he’s too busy making sure your program goes off without a hitch. (Well, unless your program involves a trailer of course!)

Justin Tamony

JUSTIN TAMONY
DIRECTOR OF ACCOUNT SERVICES, PARTNER
This world traveler comes to us via Ireland and has continued to be a huge part of our European and US growth. With a few world tours under his belt, Justin has learned the best experience in this business is “over the road” experience (and we couldn’t agree more!) In his 15th year, Justin has touched just about every experiential program under our roof including Rolling Rock, TJ Maxx and Heineken USA to name a few. When not crunching numbers and managing projects, you can expect to find Justin chasing around his two biggest (yet smallest) clients, Luke and Liam.

Services

Program Development

From mobile tours to global sampling efforts, our activation team will help you develop the tactics to achieve your program goals. We know the markets and have people on the ground in the US and abroad, so we can advise you on the best ways to tailor your approach and get results.

Shipping Logistics and Management

Our expertise is to take the challenging and make it happen. Shipping logistics is one of those challenges that can make or break an event. Our supply chain knowledge and proven relationship network with the world’s best freight vendors makes us an ideal partner for taking this load off your shoulders.

Retail Management

Our people know retail. And they know what makes a retail experience work, whether it be a Pop-up store, POS, kiosk, or end cap. We can handle design, execution and exit strategy, or any of the steps. Remember, we’re about making your activation work for you.

Field Reporting & Measurement

ROI boils down to what you can prove in real-time. Our cloud-based reporting system allows instant results available throughout the event. We use this intelligence to tweak activations, avoid potential problems and ensure maximum ROI.

Vehicle Management

If you’re taking the show on the road, an evolve activation team can manage vehicle needs, ensuring safe and timely delivery to the event destination. Of course, we’re happy to handle Fabrication, D.O.T. compliance, and international rules and regulations, too.

Field Staffing

The people on the ground are the face of your brand. And they’re our bread and butter. We have the world’s most robust database of brand ambassadors, and our activation team will facilitate the process from brand training to payroll and field management.
