The deep agency today announced a new development in its persuasive advertising team. Two of deep’s key management members, Valeri Lea and Dan Stewart, have become partners. This is exciting news for deep's clients, as the move further ensures the two will lead the company well into the future.

"We really go deeper than anyone else—further into the strategy, uncovering insights and, ultimately, building differentiating creative."

A division of the Marlin Network, which has 27 years of experience creating food print ads and marketing campaigns, deep provides clients with a unique atmosphere and culture that is conducive to each client’s success. At deep, clients are served by a team with a wealth of marketing experience. Deep’s reputation has attracted big-city talent in a smaller city, so their creative team boasts a variety of food marketing backgrounds. “I’ve worked at several agencies, and it’s really unique to see that level of passion and commitment to the craft,” Partner Dan Stewart said of his team.

Coupled with an open environment that's conducive to a truly collaborative approach, deep's diversely talented team members provide an extra edge in the foodservice marketing and branding industry. As seen in deep’s story, the atmosphere at the agency is unique, and clients can see the collaboration for themselves when visiting deep’s headquarters and test kitchen. “I think that it's important that your culture carries over into how you service your clients.
