As a group of highly seasoned creative professionals, we enjoy the collective knowledge and working relationships most agencies drool over. Our halls are filled with laughter, and because we're so passionate about delivering powerful solutions, sometimes-heated debates over the details that make work shine. It's our passion and collaboration that keep us from settling on the expected.

Elise TownsendElise Townsend   

Elise brings a wealth of business experience to her role as strategist, consultant and forward growth. Her brain was meant for this job, and so is her personality; she is relentless in her pursuit of background, resources and details. She plans and manages our clients' results while finding obscure opportunities and maximizing yield from every dollar spent. Plus, she's reasonable, highly professional, and so very kind. But trust us, you don't want to be the one to drop a ball or misplace a nickel. Elise comes to us by way of Prescott where she ran her own successful building company. She is originally from Indiana and studied at Indiana University, Purdue University in Indianapolis.

Alison DaubertAlison Daubert

Alison is one of those rare combination-type people: a highly creative art director and a smart businesswoman blessed with clear communication skills. Alison balances these skills for us by providing creative and art direction along with managing a few choice accounts. She is that good. Before coming to LP&G she designed publications for Fidelity Investments, World Presidents' Organization and Princess Resorts, and served as editor for a San Francisco publishing company. Alison graduated with honors from Pomona College in Claremont, Calif., with a bachelor's degree in art history. She joined the staff in 1999.

Kate ErdmannKate Erdmann

Kate is blessed with gifts rarely seen in one human: superb planning skills and deep creativity. She is not only adept at developing all manner of marketing materials, but is a production wizard. We rely on her to research obscure requirements, keep projects with complicated assets and layers of changes organized, moving, looking great, and smile the entire time. Nothing is a problem in Kate’s world; it will get done, done right and on time, no matter what.   

Kate’s bachelor degree is from the University of Dayton Communications/Marketing Department. Her industry experience covers beauty, green building, finance and healthcare, and she worked at a variety of publications before joining LP&G. Although she’s been in Tucson for 18 years now, her upper Midwest accent is alive and well.

Leslie PerlsLeslie Perls

With more than 25 years in the business under her belt, Leslie is the consummate creative professional. She has crafted hundreds of award-winning campaigns. She knows how to develop powerful brands and unearth the core truths that define them. Leslie joined LP&G as a partner in 1994; now, in her role as creative emeritus, she brings her skills to the table for select projects and clients.

As a connector, communicator and catalyst, Sara loves building relationships with clients. She also brings well-rounded talents in integrated campaign development, public relations, fundraising, events, writing and art direction to LP&G’s account services team. Sara has led marketing and sales teams for the University of Arizona Student Union, Madaras Gallery, SAHBA, and the Cobb County YMCA in Georgia, which grew five-fold under her watch. Sara holds a BA in Journalism-Public Relations/Broadcast News from UW-Madison. Go, Badgers!

& did you know… Sara sings, loves community theater, and can still spout a Cockney accent from her favorite role as Liza D.

Warren TownsendWarren Townsend

Warren's calm demeanor and perpetual smile belie a VERY active mind. In Warren we've found another multi-talented team member, one that (so far, anyway) says yes to every request or challenge. After attending school in Arlington, VA, Warren began a career in accounting and compliance in the construction industry. But opportunity to help small business through marketing captured his imagination. Combining his gift for precision and abundant curiosity, he took a job in sales for a digital marketing company in order to know the intricacies of the industry. In August, we brought Warren on to take advantage of both areas of expertise; not only does he help with business development in digital marketing, he also works as our accountant handling the day to day bookkeeping.

Mat AshcraftMat Ashcraft

Mathew is a great addition to our team-he comes with years of experience and relationship building in industries including medical devices/equipment and automotive. When you meet him, you feel as if you have known him your entire life. He enjoys the benefits of being an outdoorsman and is always busy exceeding personal goals. Indiana born, he has been enjoying the Arizona sunshine for over 25 years and looks for any excuse to explore the mountains. 


He's a bit of an enigma. But here's what we do know: he likes a schedule, he adores ivy, he is currently single, and he knows a good thing when he sees it (us).

Honesty is the best.
