Using Math and Science To Get High School Kids to Pay Attention: A True Story.

Last Fall, Wyse and Cleveland State University worked together to connect with college-bound high schoolers via streaming radio and rich media. "Teenagers have to be reached in different ways today," says Rob Spademan, Assistant VP of University Marketing at CSU. Our metrics team tracked exactly who was visiting the CSU site and where they came from, which allowed us to strategically adjust messaging, ensuring more applications were being completed.

Wyse Partners with Rentrak.

Wyse Partners with Rentrak.

With this agreement, Wyse replaces sample-based measurement service with Rentrak’s local television currency, enabling agency buyers and planners to deliver more efficient, effective and successful TV campaigns for their TV advertising clients.

“Rentrak’s advanced targeting is a much better approach to TV audience measurement. Their advanced demographic ratings are a far more relevant metric for understanding the effectiveness of local television in reaching actual buyers and will give our agency a distinct competitive advantage over other agencies still using only traditional demographics produced by small samples of paid panelists,” said Wyse’s Senior Vice President and Director of Media, Susanne Brockman.

Papa John's: A timely media story

Papa John’s: A timely media story.

Papa John’s challenged Wyse to find a smarter way to spend their dough. (Pun intended.) By concentrating their buy during Day Parts when people were thinking about planning their next meal and shifting savings to secure local cost-efficient sponsorships, Papa John’s was able to generate a 55% increase in weekly TRPs and a 17% increase in positive comp weeks—without increasing their budget. Needless to say, our franchise base ate up those numbers. (Pun also intended.)

Michael Marino


As writer and creative director, Mike Marino helped to build Wyse Advertising into one of the most formidable creative agencies in the country. Naturally, he got out of creative, sort of. Today, as CEO of the agency, he makes sure that Wyse maintains its values and reputation as a creative shop. He believes that great creative starts with great consumer insight. His main responsibility is to see that all parts of Wyse—from account service to media to Wyse divisions—work together from solid, sharply defined strategy. He believes in setting goals and in measuring accomplishment against them. Most of his time is devoted directly to client strategy. His retail and consumer product advertising acumen is an invaluable resource for major projects.

Dave Jankowski

Director of Account

As leader of our Account Management group, Dave’s title is traditional but misleading. Actually, he spells manager e-n-t-r-e-p-r-e-n-e-u-r. Dave joined Wyse in 1997 and brought with him valuable experience in all facets of marketing communications, having worked as a business journalist, public relations professional, and advertising account manager. This mix of hands-on experience helps him balance the resource-allocation strategies required by integrated marketing campaigns. Dave works to help clients grow. And he develops and inspires Wyse account people to deliver projects on time, on budget, and on the highest level of effectiveness.

Maggie Weitzel

Chief Financial Officer

Maggie’s the engineer who keeps the wheels turning here at Wyse. She’s our Chief Financial Officer, our Chief Human Resources Officer, and the visionary behind these beautiful offices we live in. She’s also a tireless supporter of civic causes, serving on five boards of various nonprofit corporations throughout Northeast Ohio.

Lane Strauss

Creative Director

Lane likes to write… in fact, he has published two books, many magazine articles, and some of Wyse’s best work. Lane began at Wyse in 1995 as a copywriter and was promoted to Associate Creative Director in 2001. He was named Creative Director in 2011. Lane’s background includes a broad range of clients, and he has been recognized with many regional and national awards. That doesn’t stop him from writing prank e-mails that drive the office bluenoses crazy. Lane’s sharp sense of his audience includes a talent for knowing what will make them smile—whether they are DIYers buying paint, teens buying school supplies, or moms buying pancake mix. Lane grew up in Buffalo, which we think is funny in itself, and has a B.A. in Business/English from State University of New York.

Susanne Brockman

Media Director

Susanne has been eating, drinking, and breathing media for 15+ years, and she leads both the planning and the buying groups at Wyse. Fragmentation and online proliferation have made media the Wild West of marketing, and Susanne is a media Annie Oakley who hits the target square. She has established dozens of successful TV, Radio, Cable, Newspaper, Magazine, Outdoor, and Alternative Media campaigns based on her insightful media strategies.

Linda Bremkamp

Senior Brand Planner

Linda’s always thinking. Always planning. And almost always one step ahead of everyone else. Linda started in media at Wyse in 1984, became a pioneer in planning interactive strategies, then put her formidable knowledge of consumer behavior to work as a Brand Strategist. Linda’s launched and relaunched consumer and B2B brands that range from PURELL to Dirt Devil to Smucker’s to Rockwell Automation. We call her a planner, but really, she’s a digger, relentlessly searching for that nugget of insight that’ll help your customers connect.

Matt Arko

Director of Marketing

At Wyse, Matt oversees business development, corporate strategy, strategic partnerships, and thought leadership. He is constantly assessing agency capabilities to be sure Wyse delivers strategic, forward-thinking solutions in our rapidly changing industry. Matt joined Wyse in 2007 as an account manager and has led account teams for brands including Dirt Devil, Moen, Meineke and Sherwin-Williams. Prior to joining Wyse, Matt managed the John Deere account at JWT Action. Matt graduated from The University of Dayton with B.A. degrees in marketing and finance. In his spare time, he eats raw eggs and randomly shouts, “Yo, Adrian!”
