Drive Agency is a full-service agency with deep expertise in all marketing/ communications disciplines. We have complete creative/production facilities to produce multi-media campaigns, and media planning/placement capabilities to take integrated marketing programs from conception right through to successful completion.
The team at Drive possesses a wealth of experience across Canada and in the United States. Our portfolio of real estate work ranges from master planned new home communities to adult lifestyle communities, from mature lifestyle and long term care residences to rental programs, and from luxury condominiums to major mixed-use commercial developments, industrial complexes and shopping centres.
We pride ourselves on being street smart, image conscious and result-oriented. And we work hard to over-deliver at everything we do. Because ultimately, our clients’ success drives our own success.
What is it that drives Peter to drive so fast? We’re not sure, but perhaps this need-for-speed explains Pete’s ability to deliver complex design solutions so quickly. Having worked with a wide cross-section of clients from big automakers to major beer companies to dozens of real estate development companies has given Peter deep marketing expertise that he draws from when working with Drive’s clients. Was it Peter and Mark’s shared passion for cars that led to the agency’s name? Our lips are sealed.
With 25+ years finding creative and strategic solutions for the financial, food and beverage, entertainment, sports and especially real estate categories, Mark has established a solid reputation for delivering work that, well…works. A music lover to the core, this avid guitar player spends his week days creating results-driven creative for our clients, and his weekends on stage in some of the GTA’s most illustrious haunts.
As VP Senior Account Director, Kim is well known for her quick thinking. But it's a little-known fact that this savvy strategist best demonstrated her quick, decisive nature when she jetted off for a vacation in Hawaii, and came back married! Now some 17 years later, Kim has amassed 2 kids, a dog and great deal of solid experience including 25 years of working on both client and agency side, where she has honed her strategic and executional skills in a number of industry sectors.
To this day, we're not sure how David Copperfield was able to make Deidre disappear on stage, but we're sure glad he brought her back. It's enabled us to tap into her 20+ years of award-winning copy writing experience print, broadcast and digital pieces in the real estate, retail, financial, entertainment & leisure and not-for-profit sectors. Today, Deidre spends her days crafting copy for our portfolio of real estate clients. And despite our best chocolate cookie bribes, she still won't divulge how she was made to disappear.
There are 10,000 reasons why Renee could have called in sick after winning the jackpot at Casino Niagara a little while back. Instead, she just indulged in a little retail therapy and showed up to work on Monday. This account service dynamo spends her weekdays tapping into her 11+ years of deep real estate experience on both the developer and agency side, while servicing many of Drive’s clients. Rene still spends the occasional weekend working the slots in pursuit of Lady Luck, but (lucky for us!) hasn’t hit the big one yet.
To find Fab, just look for where people are gathered, either oohing over his stunning designs, or aaahing over his homemade sourdough bread. Yes, this InDesign maestro carefully cultivates his own yeast to turn out beautifully crafted homemade breads. In his spare time, Fab puts his 25+ years of deep real estate experience to work, creating brilliant pieces for our portfolio of real estate clients. Fab keeps our clients happy with great work, and the agency happy with great food. We just hope Fab doesn’t decide to leave us to open up his own bread place anytime soon.
As Office Manager, no order is too tall for Alana. This may be due in large part to Alana's formidable talents as a stilt walker! While she spent many summers at Outdoor Music Festivals, performances and parades in Sudbury entertaining people from way above, today Alana spends her days at ground level, managing our office billings, answering phones, making sure the office runs smoothly-- oh, and pursuing her MA in Textile Designs part time in Switzerland. Is there anything this multi-tasker can't do? If there is, we haven't found it yet.
