Overview

Good is Growing

July 13, 2021

One & All has, literally, added bench strength. Jennifer Houston, who co-founded the bench in January 2018 for the gig economy and spent years supporting agencies and brands with in-house marketing teams, joined the agency last week as Senior Vice President, Client Strategy & Success. The “intrapreneur” who has long provided successful strategic and innovative leadership for start-ups and leading organizations is bringing her smarts to the performance agency for good to focus on clients including Make-A-Wish, Operation Smile, the American Red Cross, and The Salvation Army.

 Adept at pivoting and helping clients reach consumers across platforms and channels, Jennifer is skilled at optimizing company potential. With 25+ years of marketing experience having worked for major advertising agencies and brands including Pandora, State Farm, AT&T, Anheuser-Busch, Inc. and more, Jennifer is just the leader the agency needs to help clients pivot and deliver expanded results, according to agency CEO Denise Wong.

“Jennifer is an empathic human on top of being a smart marketer. She firmly believes that understanding humans means taking a real walk in their shoes to gain their perspective. With her leadership turning our proprietary research insights into impactful client campaigns, all tides will inevitably rise.” 

Jennifer is managing DeSean Brown, who also joined the performance agency for good last week as VP, Client Strategy & Success. Formerly Director of Client Services at REOL Services and Chief Relationship Officer at Pocstock Media — a diversity media platform he founded devoted to changing the way the world sees people of color — DeSean is a digitally savvy leader ready for his skills and passions to collide at One & All.

“Whether driving organic growth or identifying new business opportunities, DeSean’s lens is one through which brands need to view the world. No matter the client category in which DeSean has worked, he always brings his authentic self to all his endeavors. It’s a trait I hope becomes contagious.”

 

Both are strategic, actionable leaders looking to disrupt and drive business. Both Jennifer and DeSean redefine what the role of account management looks like for clients attempting to create and live for now and what’s next. As industries continue to be disrupted at a rapid pace, clients are seeking partners at their agencies to have the courage and smarts to re-imagine business models driven by technology in order to drive big business results.
