Does your agency have a cool origin story?

Our founder was driving one day and thinking that he was continually meeting visionaries with great ideas but no understanding of how to make them a reality. He had a eureka moment and realized that with his experience he was the perfect person to help “execute” these concepts – he coined the word “executionists” to describe his new business.
