Kristen Briner
Godmother

After 15 years of co-owning and running the agency, Kristen has moved on to mother a much younger human being, her son Brooks.

Though she still consults, her main focus at the moment is child-proofing — Brooks is learning to walk already! We wish Kristen and our future intern nothing but the best. Life is a beautiful thing.

Anne-Marie Tartaglia
MM Fan Club President

Our long-time Account Director finally decided to follow her true passion, and recently opened a Dunkin’ Donuts that only sells medium regular coffees. Kidding. Motivated by her most important role as a mom, AM made a career change to ensure she’s there for her daughter, Sophia, when she gets off the kindergarten bus. While we’re psyched for her new title, we’ll forever miss her sass and her can-do attitude.

Mr. Moonhead
The Face That Started It All

My father and I started this company together, back in 1999. Originally, it was called “dogsname,” after a long-running family joke about a Girl Scout telling me Luke was a dog’s name. Maybe it is.

Anyway, my dad passed unexpectedly the year after we started the business, just months after the birth of my eldest son. We eventually changed the name, but have held onto the idea that this is a still a family business. Our staffers and clients are all part of that family.

My father was also a big believer in having fun, at work. He loved music, the Jersey Shore, technology, and his children. As seen is this classic 70’s pic, he also fancied himself an amateur barber. Bowl cuts were his specialty. Yeah for us.

Dad, we miss you, but carry your brightly lit torch every single day. xo

Melissa Beretta
Badass Intern

A Staples High School graduate and rising sophomore at Duke University, Melissa Beretta returned to the northeast in the summer of 2015 to assume the role of intern at MadisonMott. A long-time lover of creative projects, this former maker of shoebox houses and one kick-ass washing machine Halloween costume (yes), now spends her time preparing to run the world. She explores the world of business as a member of Duke’s Association for Business Oriented Women and the Duke Marketing Club and molds young minds as a campus tour guide. In her free time, she hits the gym or heads back to the court to relive her past as a competitive tennis player.

Melissa’s interests range from knowing way too much about teenage TV dramas to keeping track of the upcoming presidential election. Her most fulfilling experiences include mentoring middle school girls in Durham, NC, singing Broadway tunes at assisted living homes around Fairfield County, and making the perfect batch of (totally not from scratch) cookies. We are still plotting how to kidnap her return.
