Solving today’s business challenges requires a marketing team that balances the demands of data, research, and technology with inspired strategic thinking and creative execution. That’s Olive & Company, and we’re passionate about using marketing to help our clients succeed.
When Rob Haskin and Tom Keekley founded Olive & Company in 2003, they envisioned building an agency where smart, talented individuals came together as a team to do work they were proud of for exceptional clients.
Today, each highly skilled individual on our team brings unique expertise and perspectives, but they all share a common purpose: overcoming complex marketing challenges to help our clients achieve their goals.
That drive is what makes someone an Olive.
It’s not enough to be smart and talented. Things change. Marketing evolves. To do what we do and do it well, we continuously seek out opportunities for learning and improvement.
As an agency team, and as partners to our clients, we’re better together. And when we motivate, support, and empower one another in our work, we’re unstoppable.
We strive for integrity in every action and every decision. This sometimes leads to challenging conversations, but these challenges help clarify who we are and what we believe.
Let’s face it, there’s never a shortage of roadblocks when it comes to marketing, but we embrace these things, knowing that each new challenge makes us better.
We work with a diverse set of clients—from mid-sized businesses to educational institutions to global corporations—all looking to connect with audiences in a research-based sales cycle. We’ve built our team and processes to adapt to the specific needs of individual clients and projects, but we provide the most value to organizations looking for an ongoing strategic partnership.
We have, but we don’t spend much time submitting our work for awards. While we’re passionate about the work we do, and industry awards are always nice, we measure ourselves based on our clients’ success, and we’re much more interested in their recognition.

After much brainstorming and debate, Olive & Company co-founders Rob Haskin and Tom Keekley found inspiration from an unusual—and furry—source: the Haskin family dog, Olive. After the thoughtful addition of “& Company,” the name fit. Many years later, it still serves us well.
