The company we keep.

From startups to Fortune 500, we’ve produced enviable work—and results—in almost every category. The variety of work keeps us curious and hungry for more. It keeps our approaches fresh and our ideas even fresher. At Perceptiv we’re not only about developing great work, but about developing work for the greater good. Part of our core mission is to partner with clients who are of like minds.

Small sampling. Big ideas.

Because we can’t show you the work we’ll do for you, we’ll do the next best thing—we’ll show you some thinking we’ve done for other clients. From classical music to consumer goods, education to entertainment, professional services to professional sports, technology to travel and so much more, our work has connected with and inspired countless consumers.

At your service.

Ring leaders. Strategic thinkers. Production gurus. Programming prodigies. Wordsmiths without equal. And Designers Extraordinaire. All at the service to one thing – our clients.

Craig Rettig
Partner. People person. Strategic thinker. Craig handles clients and creatives with equal aplomb. With over 25 years of experience on everything from automotive to high tech, Craig is all about getting results through strategic communications. He serves on the board for his alma matter and Casa, the agency’s pro bono client. The American Advertising Federation and the City of L.A. have recognized Craig for his outstanding marketing contributions. His mad juggling skills make him a perfect fit for his jack-of-all-trades roll at Perceptiv.

Dave Schwartz
Dave dives in daily on both creative execution and agency oversight as an agency partner. With a sense of humor—and sometimes irony—Dave has amassed 30 years of experience on everything from Kahluá to crying babies. He’s a natural problem solver, a skill that’s handy with clients and staff alike. Dave admits to being both amazed and amused by the creative process where ideas can appear out of thin air (it might actually be decades of developing killer creative that makes the difference).

Aaron King
Aaron is often heard asking “Why?”—of us. Of clients. Of the universe. It’s a question that ensures that he’s crafting solutions that connect with audience to achieve client goals and objectives—that’s what visual problem solving is all about. From art galleries to auto shows, Aaron has art directed, designed and produced a truly impressive portfolio of work across all mediums. If you’re looking for solutions that defy the expected, look to Aaron.

Dee Cratty
She can spot an errant video frame from 20 paces and balance a production budget down to the penny without a calculator. Dee manages all broadcast, video and radio production in addition to trafficking which helps ensure a smooth work flow here at Perceptiv. For over 25 years, Dee’s production prowess has helped sell everything from hamburgers to luxury vehicles at agencies that span the globe.

Michele McCarthy
Creative guru. Account doyen. And proud mama to an amazing young designer. Michele wears many hats and looks great in all of them. Over Michele’s illustrious career she has lead teams, owned firms and launched hundreds of marketing campaigns for clients including The Getty, Disney, WellPoint Health Networks, YMCA, United Cerebral Palsy, Los Angeles Public Library and USC. Michele has her Bachelor of Fine Arts, but we think it’s more excellent than fine.

By definition, perceptive means having the power of insight, understanding or intuition. Yup, that us.

Eric Sagucio
If there was a degree in juggling, we’d be calling Eric Dr. Sagucio. As the agency project manager he juggles numbers, projects, vendors, deadlines and sometimes even personalities in pursuit of getting projects delivered on time and on budget. His unflappable manner makes him the perfect agency “hub”—he literally touches every project as it makes its way through the agency. To Eric, no deadline is too crazy or request too impossible to take on.

Nathan Seron
Nathan lives by the numbers to ensure that every piece of communication that goes “out the door” is pixel perfect whether it’s print or electronic. As our production manager, his almost fanatic attention to detail goes beyond the simple mechanics of creating communications. He questions the turn of a phrase, the retouching of a photo or placement of a comma to make sure the meaning is as razor sharp as every element of our creative output.

For our clients Perceptiv means results. Every day. Every client.

Andre Verona
Andre is Perceptiv’s programming prodigy. He’s the guy that speaks fluent code as well as Portuguese. Nothing phases him – really. Andre’s unique ability to bridge the worlds of design and programming ensures that what we deliver digital solutions that look, feel and behave like what we’ve envisioned. Andre’s expertise has delivered the perfect combination of zeroes and ones countless times.

Christian Vasquez
Couple a millenial’s point-of-view with the sensibilities of a well-seasoned communications pro and you understand Chris. As our newest team member, Chris enthusiastically offers his talents across the board in design, production and even photography when the need arises. Christian adds a unique perspective to our seasoned team to ensure we’re reaching every audience with an authentic voice.

Gary Davis
New business. Old business. Gary is all about the business. With over 30 years of Fortune 1000 client experience Gary is both a marketing magician as well as one in the literal sense. Head turning card tricks and feats of new business that are without equal are Gary’s calling card. Gary is responsible for attracting new clients to the Perceptiv roster. Gary is a graduate of USC, and received his inspiration to join the ad/design world through his undergrad and graduate classes with Jay Chiat, founder of Chiat/Day.


We’re Perceptiv, we can tell there’s something you need help with. We’re standing by.
