Director, Accounting & Finance

Jigsaw, LLC

The first thing we’d say is, we’re not an advertising agency. We are inventive partners in growing your business; we are problem-solving experts; grand opportunists; and masters of communication. We listen to our clients—and their customers—to facilitate brand conversations that result in 1) the most relevant and effective solutions and 2) the best working experience for our clients. In other words, it’s not just what we do, but how we do it that makes working with Jigsaw different.

Our core competencies include everything on the “typical” capabilities list: strategic planning, research, advertising, web and interactive development, social media planning and execution, brand identity management, design, collateral, media, direct marketing, public relations, promotions, etcetera.

However, our capabilities are limitless—because we do whatever needs to be done to solve a problem or take advantage of an opportunity. That could be a television spot, media relations, a coast-to-coast mobile marketing program or a custom software application. And we do it with passion, creativity and deft execution.

Our ultimate mission—and the ultimate end benefit for you—is that our clients are not only completely confident in our ability to help them reach their goals, but that they are also—inspired.
