Our industry heavily relies on beauty and communication. The team at FIFTEEN has the structure, experience and artistry to paint the beautiful and convey the message. But what’s different about us is how different we are from one another. We come from different places. We’re influenced by varied specific interests. A collection of unique perspectives that shape the ways we work. The fact that we don’t always see eye to eye is a good thing. It means we’re pushing ourselves to objectively see beyond and draw upon our past experiences to develop thoughtful strategies that resonate with our audience.
To deliver on the promise of doing something "different," perspective needs to shift. Stare at something long enough and it loses its meaning. Stare at it even longer and it means something else. FIFTEEN arose from two partners who took a long look at the then-current agency landscape not for what it was, but for what it could become. What two partners founded was a collective of individuals that saw advertising not for what it was, but for what it could be.
FIFTEEN’s Partner and CEO Zack Schneider has devoted his life's work to simultaneously elevating his clients' brands while fostering a positive, fruitful environment for his employees. It's why FIFTEEN has always maintained a low turnover rate and stacked several local and national advertising awards. Zack's devotion to his company and city saw him receive Buffalo Business First's prestigious 40 Under 40 designation as he’s broadened the definition of what an advertising and marketing agency could be. It took decades of professional agency experience and relationships with brands such as PBS, New Era, Estee Lauder and GE.
Greg Neundorfer has led creative strategy at FIFTEEN ever since its inception, and has fostered its steadily tremendous growth. Overseeing all design, development, content and interactive projects, Greg offers a careful, critical eye while trusting his team and providing the freedom to take risks. An advertising veteran, Greg has worked at some of the nation’s most prestigious agencies during his time in Cincinnati and New York City. This has borne fruitful relationships with notable brands such as the Cincinnati Reds, Showtime, Match.com, Clinique and JPMorgan Chase.
