An industry veteran, Dodie has been driven by a tireless desire to understand how to create an environment that inspires great work. Dodie began her career in advertising in account service, but quickly realized that in order to be effective with clients as well as her colleagues, she needed to understand the infrastructure and process that inspires great work. To that end, she shifted her focus to project management for a few years before transitioning back to account service. She joined Eleven in 1999 as a Group Account Director and it was here that she helped the agency achieve national recognition for award-winning creative solutions for such high-profile brands as Apple, Dignity Health, Oakley, Union Bank and Virgin America. To do this, she was instrumental in developing the operational infrastructure that has enabled them to scale successfully to the agency they are today, including recognition as an AdAge 2017 Agency of the Year. From Chief of Staff working alongside the President, to key contract negotiations with some of the toughest high profile clients, Dodie has long been known as the “Secret Weapon” of Eleven.
