Mike Lepis, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Vignette: The Agency for Employees, focused on producing creative and meaningful internal brand communications to engage employees, will speak at our 2014 Bronze Beacon Awards event. Mike has been leading the creative development of brand communications for over 15 years. Holding a variety of roles at Nike and Sony, he developed and managed programs in retail, internal, mobile, and consumer marketing. Drawing on his experiences at these global brands, Mike expressed his entrepreneurial efforts and creative vision in 2000 as a Co-Founder at Lost Highway Pictures and then Alpha Multimedia Solutions in 2004. Vignette was founded in 2011.
“Understanding people is the key to engagement. No idea or creative concept can connect with an audience if you don’t understand what they need and how they’ll best receive it.”
The Beacon Awards recognize excellence in business communication in Oregon and southwest Washington. They are awarded to professionals who have proven that their communication programs effectively furthered the goals of their organization by boosting revenue, saving money, rallying employees or otherwise contributing to a successful outcome.
