Grasshopper Marketing is a unique marketing agency made up of talented professionals who use modern communications to eliminate the need for 20th century, brick-and-mortar marketing production lines. Some might say we’re a virtual agency. Fact is, we’re quite real, and quite good. We’re just not all in one place.

We operate from home offices, and we execute our projects with perpetual use of the most modern communication methods—email, text, instant messaging, phone conferencing, Google Hangout and so forth. Because of our flexible model, without permanent employees and other fixed costs, we’re able to scale to client needs quickly while maintaining relatively low costs. Our clients don’t pay us to politic around water coolers in A-space offices. They pay us to produce great stuff that gets them more leads and sales. And that’s what we do.

Kari Kenner, Founder & Managing Partner

Kari has loved marketing since she was a little kid drawing logos for her soccer team. She earned a BS in Marketing and English from Stetson University. After college, she worked in marketing departments for large companies as well as small creative agencies.

Kari founded Grasshopper in 2005, and has 18 years marketing and advertising experience on both client and agency sides. From concept to execution, she helps clients develop the ideas, images and words to reach their markets. She oversees creative and content development, while defining strategy and tactical execution for all creative marketing programs.

On the side, Kari runs a growing online toy store (Busy Brothers Toys) and uses what she learns to help her clients succeed. She’s a member of several Atlanta and Amelia Island networking groups for small business and entrepreneurs.

Shannon Kenner, Managing Partner

Shannon’s brain is built around numbers and how they relate to the world. He studied at Georgia State, earning a BS in Mathematics and Decision Sciences. He spent the next 15 years helping small risk analysis and decisioning firms, along with big-bank analytics departments, figure out who were good and bad credit risks.

In 2011, Kari finally convinced Shannon to leave corporate America and relate his analytical prowess to marketing. So he joined Grasshopper and now applies data-driven marketing techniques to increase website traffic, attract customers, and sell products for Grasshopper clients.

In his spare time, he created the online History Buff Club and is turning it into a community for fans of movies, books, games and discussion of history and military history. Shannon is a member of Mensa and several Atlanta and Amelia Island networking groups.

Katherine Remmert, Consumer Brands Specialist

Katherine is passionate about reaching her B2C clients’ target consumers with meaningful marketing tactics. She works with clients to discover their ideal customers, what they want, and how to reach and engage them.

Nicole White, Director of Content Management

Nicole’s been a writer since she can remember, back when she created annual newsletters for her family as a pre-teen, dreaming of being the White House Press Secretary. Her passion for writing has never faltered.

With a bachelor’s degree in communications and public relations from San Diego State, she’s focused her career on content creation for small businesses and non-profits, coordinating environmental and social justice campaigns, organizing volunteers during the 2008 presidential election, and developing communication programs for an economic development board’s 5-year strategy.

When not writing, Nicole enjoys active involvement in the communities where her husband’s military career takes them, from business clubs to family support groups. Nicole and her family recently relocated from Amelia Island, Florida to Groton, Connecticut where she will brave the long winters by curling up with her husband Joseph, son Grayson, and her three fur-babies Mollison, Ginger and Miles.

Gonzo Gagliardi, Director of Multimedia Production

Born in Argentina and having lived in almost every other warm, beautiful place in the Western hemisphere, Gonzalo “Gonzo” Gagliardi has brought a cosmopolitan spirit to his work in multimedia since 1998. An exacting craftsman and envelope-pushing director, Gonzo has produced a significant variety of high production-value films, specializing in documentaries, commercials, outdoors, and point-of-view camera, as well as high risk shoots and stunts. His production credits include Fox Sports, Telemundo, Fuel TV, Lifestyle TV, Comcast, BestBuy, Costco, QVC and Home Shopping Network.

When Gonzo’s not producing, there’s more than a decent chance he’s somewhere out of doors, and most probably surfing the sometimes not-so-gentle waves of Amelia Island.
