Kevin Justice

President

Kevin started his career with a strong creative foundation that led him to becoming an early adopter of digital media and interactive. With over 30 years of related experience, he is among the top IT strategists and consultants in the region. Kevin’s creative and interactive project list includes notable brands such as Zebra Pen, Mack Trucks, Schering-Plough, Hershey Foods and Just Born. His love for mixing creativity and technology extends to the team through regular training and creative lunch sessions on how to integrate technology to empower marketing. The only technology he hasn’t adopted is progressive lenses, although peering over the top of his glasses gives him that bookishly smart look.

Paul Pastrick

EVP | Chief Operations Officer

For the 20 years prior to Ignite2X, Paul refined his leadership skills at AT&T. Since the inception of Ignite2X in 2007, his wisdom lies in bringing all factors together to create ideal production processes. Simply put, he works with the best staff (his words) to exceed client objectives. Paul is always bringing teams together to achieve one goal, whether the at-work team or the many sports teams he’s coached over the years. Paul is a die-hard Pittsburgh sports fanatic and Yankee fan and enjoys hittin’ the weights at the gym. When not waving a terrible towel, he’s spending time with his family and probably wearing a shirt made out of bamboo.

Andy Morfopoulos

Chief Executive Officer

Andy is a person of many interests, but one thing he has a real passion for is growing brands. As the spokesperson for many of our agency’s growing relationships, he understands leadership at its best comes from great collaboration and being a good listener who taps into consumer needs and client’s desires. His 20 years in agency leadership has given shoppers reasons to crunch Blue Diamond Almonds, get handy with Black & Decker and Quaker State and live a little with Chivas Regal and Coca-Cola. He takes great interest in his wife’s Pilates studio, jazz music, tennis, drumming and drinking wine.

She spent many years as an independent consultant, working on campaigns for some of the most respected brands in the world and learning the marketing business inside out. During downtime, she relaxes by doing crossword puzzles and tormenting her family by watching countless hours of sports, even golf.

Virginia’s extensive client experience spans across category lines and includes Blue Diamond Almonds, Sutter Home, Dole, Campbell’s, Zebra Pen, Tylenol, Comcast and more. Her penchant for success shines through with hard work, dedication and enthusiasm. Lots of enthusiasm. Something you may not know about Virginia is that she is a self-proclaimed Turophile, in other words, a cheese snob. As she always says, “the best things in life are cheese.”

Drake Aschliman

Art Director

Drake is a Colorado State grad with over 20 years in the design industry. Over the years, Drake has fine-tuned his design skills in a wide-range of opportunities as a freelancer, in-house, agency and printer, giving him the ability to prove his creative chops on a variety of agency clients. When he’s not being a Photoshop wizard or crafting clever email responses, he’s hiking with his family, playing disc golf or enjoying craft brews. Critics call Drake the funniest person in the office. One might even call him the bee’s knees. (No really, he’s a beekeeper and sells honey from his desk).

Logan Beck

Social Media / Content Marketing Specialist

Logan always has a finger on the pulse of social media and takes a fresh approach to everything she touches. Working as a liaison between our creative and technology teams, her influence is felt on everything from influencer outreach, blogs and all forms of agency creative work. She is a proud alum of Temple University and is as witty as she is enthusiastic. Logan loves the fun of developing creative ideas and the satisfaction of delivering tangible results for clients. She enjoys musical theater and is very nostalgic for being on the young end of the millennial spectrum. If you want to talk about the latest true crime documentary, she’ll gladly tell you who she thinks did it (it’s usually the brother).

Christian Clark

Web Developer

Christian’s passion for computers and technology serve him well in his role, as he hopes to someday become a data analyst. In the office, he helps us with all things tech by updating website features and navigating the world of ecommerce. He also enjoys reading, hiking, and long walks on the beach.

Colleen George

With 15 years of project management, IT, and marketing under her belt, it’s no wonder how Colleen keeps everything here moving — and lots of fun! Colleen is responsible for planning and scoping agency projects, in addition to communicating with clients and delivering solutions. Her experience spans several industries including publishing, industrial, pharmaceutical, manufacturing and more. She enjoys traveling with her husband and her two awesome teenagers, and loves her affectionate Goldendoodle, Oliver. Colleen is a social butterfly who loves hosting get-togethers, spending time with family and friends, and listening to Ed Sheeran.

Tim Glase

Sports Marketing

Tim once dreamed about being a professional mascot, but luckily for us, he works here instead. Today, he graces us with his cowboy boots, M*A*S*H knowledge, and charming sense of humor. Tim has worked across planning, marketing, communications, management and corporate partnership development for Pop Warner Little Scholars, and the International Hot Rod Association. He has also worked to develop dynamic sponsorship programs with NASCAR, Komatsu, Mattel Hot Wheels, Royal Crown Cola, and The Army National Guard. Don’t let Tim’s 20 plus years of sports marketing experience fool you. While he prefers the local dirt track, he’s a huge fan of the theater. If you play your cards right, he might just sing you a tune.

Diane Guadagna

Office Manager

Diane is the glue that holds this office together. She makes sure our finances are always “accounted” for (pun intended). Diane graduated with a BS in Business Administration/Marketing from Wilkes University, and owned and operated her own business for 9 years. Diane officially joined the Ignite2X team after working at an accounting firm for several years. She is a proud cat owner to Tigger, Tony and Cleo. Diane loves cooking, decorating, and spending time with her newly blended family which includes her husband Mark, 4 adult children and their significant others, and grand dogs!

Collin Johnston

Account Support Services

Collin is a senior at Temple University. He thinks out of the box, and takes initiative agency projects, which makes him pretty good at this whole intern thing. Collin is currently on the Temple Men’s Rugby Team. Much to Kevin and Paul’s dismay, he loves all Philly sports teams. (Go Birds!)

Kristen Lee

Graphic Designer

Kristen is a recent graduate from York College of Pennsylvania, and was born and raised in Bethlehem, PA. Kristen has a variety of internship experience designing logos, presentations and other collaterals for various organizations. She enjoys the challenge of a new project, and working and learning alongside Drake and Virginia. She’s one of six siblings, 3 brothers and 2 sisters (yes, just like the Brady Bunch). In her spare time, you can find her doodling, exploring nature trails, and recreating recipes from Pinterest. If you’re looking to buy Kristen a present, her favorite color is pink. PMS 213 C, to be specific.

Molly Manchester

Account Executive

If you ever spot baked goods around the office, chances are, Molly made them. Molly has an eye for detail, program planning, time management, and organization. As an account executive, Molly implements tactical execution and supports client management. Molly enjoys working in the food space, and collaborating with her mentors on growing agency accounts. She has the cleanest desk in the office and helps us practice our French pronunciations. In her free time, she loves learning about all things fitness, cooking, and playing with her dog, Rocky.

Scott Mari

Senior Web Application Developer

Scott has worked as a developer at companies large and small in major cities including Philadelphia and New York. In the agency, he is responsible for web development, ecommerce websites and IT infrastructure. Scott also estimates web development and oversees desktop support. He loves HBO, drawing, and making furniture, and once aspired to be a modern medical illustrator — just like Leonardo Da Vinci. In the office, he holds the record for most cups of coffee consumed in an 8-hour workday. Very impressive, Scott!

Kim Taylor

Production Manager / Client Services

With a keen eye for detail, Kim is masterful at carrying a project from start to finish. Kim handles client services for Blue Diamond. In addition to production and estimation requests, she is also responsible for sourcing printer and vendor management services. She is a proud mom of two boys that she looks up to – way up – both being over 6’3″. She is skilled in the kitchen and loves trying new recipes or making her own, and her two dogs are always hoping something gets dropped on the floor. When she’s not in the kitchen, she enjoys the great outdoors, whether it’s kayaking, bicycling, or swimming.
