Anson is the founder and CEO of Battery and a longtime entrepreneur. Having been named Ad Age’s Small Agency of the Year in Battery’s second year in business, Anson continues to change the way companies are built. Prior to Battery, he started his career leading brand marketing in the toy and video game industries before co-founding and selling one of the first pure play social media agencies called RocketXL. Anson is an active member of the Young Presidents’ Association (YPO) and holds a Business degree from the Marshall School at the University of Southern California.
Philip’s unwavering energy to create work that rattles the mind of the consumer drives our creative philosophy. A Canuck by blood, his career has brought him to BBDO Toronto, Grey Worldwide and Dare London, but he’s grown to love the sunshine in the City of Angels as an avid motorcycle rider. He can often be found on one of his favorite SoCal tracks racing his bikes in hairpin turns at over 140 mph.
Ray has a rich history of campaigns that build brands and sell products. Before Battery, he worked on high profile clients like Beats, Toyota and PlayStation. A Chiat and Saatchi alum, he’s won Clios, One Show, Cannes and pretty much every award out there. Ray is one of those guys who get up at 5am to drive from his downtown LA loft to surf El Porto before work every morning utilizing his self-rigged mobile shower.
An Art Director by trade, Bernie helped create some of the most notable campaigns of all time from Taco Bell’s Spanish speaking Chihuahua to a suicidal robot in General Motors’ Super Bowl spot. Bernie traded in his East Coast roots to settle in at Deutsch, Chiat and Team One before Battery. As a former professional skateboarder, Bernie spends two nights a week in the Santa Monica skate park teaching his 33,000+ Instagram followers (@sk8boardingsaves) how it’s done.
Phil bridges the left and right parts of the Battery brain to drive strategic development. Familiar with client and agency, he’s done it all, from launching billion dollar entertainment brands including Batman, to managing flagship product for companies including Warner Bros., 2K Games, and Team One. Phil loves to think he has time to practice his passion for pugilism and punish the air with his fists of self-proclaimed fury. That is, when he isn’t overrun by his twins at home.
Judy is able to expertly navigate the worlds of production, technology, and advertising. From leading and building production teams and heading effects shops to traversing the planet to produce content for iconic brands like Lexus, Dr. Pepper, Madden, Infiniti, and the massive Beats World Cup campaign, she’s done it all. True to her southern roots, you can expect a few “y’alls” to slip once she gets to know you.
Mackenzie is a Jill of all trades, there is nothing she can’t do or hasn’t already done to make it all happen. Mackenzie began her life on the farm in Indiana and made her way to LA and has since been an Islands server, a Paramount Studios tour guide, a talent agent’s assistant twice over, spent four years at Ant Farm eventually becoming their Chief of Staff. When Mackenzie isn’t at Battery obsessively checking her emails she is brunching hard and Netflixing harder!
