Donna Mulgrew joins Agency|51 from the destination marketing arena as our Director of Tourism Services. What challenged Donna before A51? Well, 15 years of destination marketing experience in both the private and public sectors promoting such aspirational brands as Surf City USA® (Huntington Beach), The OC® (Orange County, CA), The American Riviera™ (Santa Barbara), and California have given Donna a unique perspective into how to “put heads in beds” (and into what clients need from their agency partners). When she’s not at work, she’s either engaging in pursuits like social media, experiencing a new restaurant or Irish pub, OR she’s got her head in a book (NOT literally) — but most likely, juggling all in the list (she’s a multi-tasker). An OC native, she’s been married to her significant other, Jim, for the better half of her life, and enjoys laughing with her sons Kevin and Craig.

As Director of Strategy and Client Services, David Robertson, comes to us with nearly 15 years experience in developing, managing, and executing marketing strategies and campaigns for major brands, including Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications and Comcast. The recipient of 8 Golden Palm Awards recognizing his excellence in marketing from the Cable & Telecommunications Association for Marketing (CTAM), David takes great pride in the success and satisfaction of his clients. It’s not hyperbole. Spend time with David and you’ll discover no one cares more about a client’s needs and success — just one of the reasons we wanted him on our team. When he’s not working at Agency|51, you’ll find David volunteering around south Orange County with Saddleback@Work and the Bell Tower Foundation, or spending time with one of his three favorite girls – wife Melanie, and daughters, Ava and Emma. Clearly, David is outvoted in the Robertson household.

Anyway, we hope you’ll choose to meet with them one day soon, because we feel privileged to work with them every day.
