CEO and Founder
A Passion for Creating Leaders Worth Following
Brandon founded PHOS at the age of 26 out of his home office with the vision to be an anomaly inside of an over-promising and consistently underwhelming industry. With a strong commitment to culture and strategic planning, he’s led the team to become the highest rated marketing agency in North Central Florida and to receive the high honor of the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce’s “Employer of the Year” in 2018.
“What I’m most passionate about is inspiring people. It fuels me to be able to empower people and businesses to think different, lead different, and be different.”
When Brandon’s not leading the team, networking with other business executives, or assisting in a strategic initiative with clients, you’ll find him out on a date with his wife, playing a game with his sons, jamming on his Taylor or Duesenberg, scuba diving in a spring, or leading a group at his church.
A Passion for Art Driven by Vision
As a Designer, Jenelle focuses on creating compelling narratives that are communicated creatively and crafted with care. She wakes up every day excited to put forth clients’ vision and story through design that is meaningful and memorable.
In her life outside the studio, Jenelle’s free time is spent mostly in the gym as an avid weightlifter and fitness enthusiast. You might also find her volunteering at the humane society, listening and watching everything Disney with her husband, in the kitchen cooking up treats and meals…or just eating ice cream out of the quart.
A Passion for Collaboration and Creativity
With 20 years of experience leading people and organizations, Derrak loves creativity and the power it has to inspire and connect people to each other and the things they love. His greatest joy is collaborating with and developing leaders to discover their passions and make a difference in the lives of others.
As a Project Manager, he oversees a talented team of developers and designers that delight our clients by creating inspiring products to help them connect with their customers and accomplish their mission.
Outside of PHOS, you can find Derrak on a date with his wife, attending scouting events with his two sons, getting lost on a hike, or somewhere in Alachua County trying to hit 30 miles on his road bike.
Inbound Marketing Manager
A Passion for People and Strategy
With a strategic mind and a love for culture and leadership, Alexis spends each day working to get the most out of every idea and person on our team. As an Inbound Marketing Manager, she oversees our incredibly talented group of marketers by empowering them to inspire, lead, and grow our clients.
Outside of PHOS, you can find Alexis spending time with her large (and loud) family, at the nearest farmer’s market, finding time for the beach, dreaming of having her own cow pasture, or taking up new DIY projects at home.
A passion for design, development, and problem-solving.
When not tinkering around on the computer at PHOS, Mike is usually tinkering around on the computer at home. He enjoys dabbling in computer graphics programs like Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as 3D rendering software like Blender. Aside from that, he is a blue belt in Krav Maga, and enjoys getting outside and enjoying the sunshine – whether that be at a theme park or a local spring.
A Passion for Exploring the Intersections of Design
With an education background in Industrial Design, Cat brings a little bit of everything to the team as PHOS’ first Creative Associate. She delivers research and user based results, whether that be in a new branding campaign or your next photo shoot.
When she’s not creating killer content at PHOS, Cat is working on new diy’s and recipes for her blog ctrl + curate or has a new plant baby on her hip and camera in hand. Each weekend is a new project with multiple trips to Home Depot.
A passion for technology and learning
Hendrik studied Criminology at UF after moving to the US from Germany. His love for technology enabled him to switch from Law Enforcement to the tech world and his slogan of “Protect & Serve” became “Code & Serve.” He enjoys discovering new technologies and can spend hours to perfect a feature, only to toss out the work and start with another technology.
“With a true passion, you can achieve anything. For me, that was leaving my law enforcement family and jumping into web development without any sort of professional background in coding. I love what I do and strive to improve daily.”
As a web developer, Hendrik hits his high when he is met with new ambitious goals, and won’t stop until it’s done. While working with other talented developers Hendrik always keeps an open ear for new ways of doing old things.
On the side Hendrik enjoys all kinds of sports, but recently has shifted his focus onto beach volleyball.
Inbound Marketing Executive
A Passion for Innovation and Technology
As both an analyst and a creative, Jena has a penchant for crafting digital experiences for brands that delight the people they serve. She brings client visions to life through strategic planning in her role as an Inbound Marketing Executive.
When Jena isn’t at the office brainstorming for a client, she can be found at a thrift store hunting for vintage clothing or hanging out at a coffee shop reading lifestyle blogs on her tablet. She also enjoys singing karaoke for recreation.
Inbound Marketing Assistant
A Passion for Creating Value
Bailey is dedicated to creating and cultivating not only exceptional content, but valuable relationships. As an Inbound Marketing Assistant, she implements hands-on practices and innovative thinking to build strong client relationships and deliver valuable content.
Outside of PHOS, you can find Bailey managing her own Etsy shop, enjoying a cup (or two) of coffee, or frequenting Walt Disney World. Her obsessions include Dolly Parton, Drake, and the color navy.
Inbound Marketing Intern
A passion for Storytelling
Behind every brand is a compelling story and mission. Jessica has a passion for bringing these unique stories to light in a creative and engaging way. As an Inbound Marketing Intern, she is excited to gain valuable hands-on experience and grow her digital marketing skills!
Outside of PHOS, you can find Jessica baking up a storm in her kitchen, or perusing the aisles at her second home– Target. Always up for an adventure, every weekend holds the opportunity to explore a new city, farmer’s market, or hiking trail!
With an ever-changing industry and positive, creative, and joyful team members, there’s never a dull day. PHOS is a team driven by our mission, with a strong guiding vision, and powerful core values.
