Adam Bluebaugh

Account Coordinator

It isn’t easy working across both our Venues and Sponsorship and Client Services teams, but when Adam (aka “The Navigator”) sets course, no wave can knock him off track. When he’s not guiding our clients’ programs safely to port, you can catch him tending to our RedPeg Grows garden or enjoying a nice cup of tea (hot, iced…or spilled).

Corporate Development Manager

As RedPeg’s unofficial “Chief of Stuff,” Adam has his finger on the RedPeg pulse and mysteriously seems to know all that happens internally. Not only does he manage all of RedPeg’s business development efforts, he’s also a whiz at 90s pop culture trivia.

Alexis is our resident tequila connoisseur, pescatarian, and matchmaker all in one. Her fitness kick is here to stay, as the reigning champion of RedPeg’s health challenge. Alexis’s greatest strength, though, is working diligently with all the brand ambassadors on behalf of our clients. Is there anything this it-girl can’t do?

Allison Brill

Sr. Account Manager

A DC-resident, by way of Dallas and Chicago, Alli’s appreciation for art and innovation helps bring her clients’ ideas to life. When she’s not managing high-profile brands, she’s trying out a new restaurant in the city, styling a bride on her wedding day, or daydreaming about where to take her next vacation.

Social Media & Digital Specialist

This DC-native knows her prose. Find her with her head down, pen to paper (or fingers to key), crafting the perfect tweet, polishing digital copy, or filling a journal with a daily entry. When she isn’t acting as “the Socialite”, the Hokies’ next game and travel are on her mind.

Small but mighty, patient but insistent, Ann’s got the “right-hand (wo)man” role down pat. She may not roam the RedPeg halls quite often, but you can’t deny her presence alongside our CEO. Need to track down Brad? You’ve gotta get through Ann first.

Anna Sanders

Venues & Sponsorship Manager

From vintage shops to venues, Anna, also known as “the Thrifter”, knows a thing or two about stretching and saving a dollar. When she’s not negotiating stellar deals for our clients, she’s keeping up with the latest fashion trends, traveling around the world, or hiking with her dog, Maiya.

Averi Bellerose

Averi Bellerose

Office Coordinator

From planning office events to manning the front desk, Averi is the first (and perhaps friendliest) face of RedPeg, and an integral part of our agency culture. When she’s not acting as our “Gatekeeper,” she’s probably reading up on Hollywood gossip or crossing another state off her travel bucket list.

Heather Tweedie

Staff Photo

Heather Tweedie

Controller

From handling account reconciliations to employee payroll, Heather is our “Money Maven” who keeps the financial wheels turning. And frankly, we’d be lost without her. When she’s not chasing us to do our expenses, she’s probably chasing her kids to do their homework, or coaching single moms with their personal finances.

In a world of Calibri, one man will dare to be Neue Haas Grotesk. When his last project was killed by Comic Sans, Mac Johnson swore he’d never design again.
