Target. Caribou Coffee. Lucy Activewear. Sperry. Jet.com. These are just a few of the fun brands Tesa has worked on throughout her career, both on the client- and agency-side. As Tesa likes to say, she “grew up” at Target, where she worked in the Home, Beauty and Fashion categories. Her work there included the launch of several fashion and beauty designer brands, along with the cleaning brand Method. After 10 fruitful years at Target, Tesa made the leap to agency life. She has since worked as an Account Director at Mosquito, BBDO and Mono and Director of Client Services at PMH.
Tesa loves working with underdog brands—the ones that punch above their weight class. Who want to dig in and get their hands dirty. Building teams and working together are Tesa’s bread-and-butter, and she firmly believes the best creative work is the result of collaboration. That the best ideas can come from anywhere. And above all, that work should be fun.
When she’s not working, you can find Tesa outside or trying to get outside. She’s a sports fan through-and-through, and her favorite teams usually include one of her three children—Madeline, Will and Sam—who she considers to be her greatest achievement in life.
