Treasurer: Greg Potts
A Cleveland native, Greg has been in Lexington since late 2016 after residing in Peoria, IL for 25 years. His career has covered many aspects of the marketing and advertising spectrum including co-op advertising, mar-tech, SMS/text marketing, and data-driven consumer insights.
Secretary: Adam Brown
Adam is the creative director and a partner at Marrow: a brand strategy, design, and technology agency for people who give a damn. Call him a design zealot, a provocateur, or—if you’re his mother-in-law—a bullshit artist. With Adam, brands embrace empathy as strategy, value audacity over relevance, and commit unequivocally to the remarkable.

Public Service: Teagan Miller
Hailing from Los Angeles, Teagan moved to Lexington in 2011 on a whim and is still amazed at the creative community she stumbled into here. In her spare time you can find her coaching clients, reading Tarot cards and drumming poorly. She handles operations and messaging at Mediocre Creative.
Education: Adriane Grumbein & Shannon McCarthy
Adriane is an associate professor in the Integrated Strategic Communication program at UK; Shannon is an assistant professor in the Department of Art and Design at EKU.
Executive: Kameron Kragel
If you meet Kameron, odds are there will be graphite smeared all over the side of his left hand. He studied accounting & finance at UK, and got his master’s at Auburn. In his spare time, he loves serving on this board and working with so many terrific people in the creative/ad industry. This Club is perfect for that.
