With the heart of an art director and the head of an account planner, Edward is something of an advertising anomaly. For the many clients he has worked with over his 20+ year career, Edward provides keen marketing insight coupled with a singularly creative approach. Edward has guided his agency from its founding in 1993 as a two-man design shop into the full-service marketing agency it is today. Estipona Group is known for smart, effective work and comprehensive branding strategies from logos and websites to space design and uniforms.
From the helm of the agency, Edward has overseen hundreds of branding and communications programs for healthcare, nonprofits, arts and education, tourism, government agencies and service-industry clients. He counts among his successful marketing partnerships Nevada Housing Division, Washoe Medical Center, Nevada Arts Council, Reno Philharmonic Orchestra, National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, Charter College and the Reno Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority.
Over the years, Edward and his agency have been honored with a host of marketing awards including American Advertising Federation ADDY awards and American Marketing Association ACE awards. Edward was named “Reno Advertising Person of the Year” at the age of 25, “Marketer of the Year” by the American Marketing Association’s Northern Nevada Chapter, a top business leader under 40 by the Nevada Business Journal and in 2008, one of the “Top 20 Business Leaders Under 40” by the Reno Gazette Journal. In 2008, Estipona Group was awarded the prestigious Governor’s Arts Award in recognition of its support of the arts.
Edward graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from the University of Nevada, Reno. He is the father of two and happily married to his college sweetheart.
