Meet Our Team
Stephanie Olds-Blodgett - President
I have worked in marketing and advertising for over 25 years. I’m passionate about my work and can’t imagine doing anything else. When I started Ad Elements in 2002, my vision was to put a team in place that would be comprised of people that were as zealous about marketing as I am. And I’ve accomplished just that. Every member of the Ad Elements team really is an expert in their field. Whether a client needs strategic media planning, social media management, strong creative concepts, or web and digital development-we can do it! I work very closely with everyone on our team to make sure we are meeting clients’ objectives. We are not a large agency, but we provide big agency services and quality. We build strong relationships with our clients; we want you to feel like our team is part of your business.
It is essential to give back to the community in which we live, work and play. Currently I serve as the Chair of the Board of Directors to the American Red Cross Southern Tier Chapter. I was one of the founders of the 20 year long Keeping Kids Warm program, and I support numerous other local organizations. In addition, we provide internships every semester to college students, including from my alma mater, Binghamton University. I am a firm believer is community service!
Brendan O'Reilly - Agency Director
Brendan worked in local TV since graduating from Binghamton University in 1998 with degrees in English and History. First as a news reporter and later as a sports anchor, he learned all about the area by driving from game to game across the Southern Tier. For the past 2 and a half years he worked in media sales, helping develop and grow businesses in several different fields.
Brendan puts family first, devoting his spare time to watching and filming his 3 sons play baseball, basketball and lacrosse. His work behind, and in front of, the camera and his experience in local business development make him a great addition to the Ad Elements team.
Jim Blodgett - Client Relations Manager
Following my graduation from SUNY Morrisville in 1981, I worked for a family-owned auto parts chain, eventually becoming Vice President of Operations. In 1998, I started work at a sales and training position in the aftermarket automotive refinishing business. During this time, I learned an appreciation for the graphic design and photography side of marketing. I continued to work in the automotive industry until I joined Ad Elements in the fall of 2003.
My experience in customer relations and business development has been put to the test developing new business and contacts for Ad Elements. I've continue to practice my skills in graphic design and photography, producing our clients' the print and digital ads. In addition to photography, my other interests include serving on the Board of Directors for the Binghamton University Athletic Club in their Student development program. I've had the opportunity to work with several student athletes as a mentor and offer intern programs at Ad Elements.
Chris Coyne - Production Director
After nearly 20 years as a radio Production Director and commercial copy-writer, I was thrilled to join the Ad Elements team in 2008. It's fulfilling to help mold innovative, multi-media campaigns for a diverse and dynamic client list. My job is to make people remember you. Write. Record. Produce. Direct. Design. Edit. I do all this to highlight what you can offer everyone else. We all win!
Chris began his career in broadcasting. He started as a part-time announcer and worked his way up to the position of Production and Copy Director for a six-radio station cluster. He has received numerous awards for his radio work. Chris joined the Ad Elements team in Feb. 2008. He is responsible for all creative direction, contributing to TV, radio, web, outdoor and print projects. He also is the editor of two regional versions of Ad Elements' quarterly health publication, Healthy Life Magazine.
