Roger is the big dog at ND&P. A former pharmacist with a master's degree in business, he managed a respected Virginia hospital for several years before leaving to start his own agency. Clients like the Virginia State Police Help Eliminate Auto Theft and Insurance Fraud programs appreciate the precise, measured and analytical thinking he brings to the sometimes chaotic ad world.

Sharing his expertise, Roger's been teaching graduate courses in marketing at Virginia Commonwealth University since 2007. He's also served as board chair of Easter Seals Virginia and Meals on Wheels, and as executive director of Virginians for the Arts. He is a former chair and current member of the marketing committee for Feed More, the organization born from the merger of Meals on Wheels and the Central Virginia Food Bank.

What does Roger trust?
"Potatoes. I've never met one I didn't like - fried, baked, mashed, scalloped, you name it. And I've got the fabulous figure to prove it!"

Agency cofounder Chuck lives for media. Chuck will tell you he dreams about all phases of media research, planning, placement and post-buy analysis. You can probably blame his fanatic attention to detail on an early career as a clinical project coordinator for a pharmaceutical company, where he conducted a wide range of scientific studies.

Versed in data analysis and market research, Chuck will find a way to reach your target audience. When a hospital needed to reach out to individuals with epilepsy, he recommended a series of metro board ads - because the target audience can't drive. He's worked with a variety of clients, from MedStar Health System and the Virginia State Police to Carolinas HealthCare System.

What does Chuck trust?
"The ability of our clients to make sound decisions that support the stability and growth of their organizations. For example, they have all hired ND&P."

If you could imagine the agency as a sizable and somewhat complex organism that thrives on fresh ideas and demanding challenges, John Bedor is that individual with his quite capable hands on the uptake valve through which the agency’s lifeblood flows: It’s the valve marked "business development."

With an MBA, client-side experience as a marketing director and more than 15 years of business development experience, John is uniquely suited for the task. The range of his sector work spans international consulting, financial services and advertising, where he has honed strengths in proposal and pitch strategy and channel/partnership development.

Beyond those key assets, his "love for the hunt" and a keen sense for business, people and how decisions get made are vital in keeping ND&P "in the hunt" - and winning - with regularity.

It's not at all coincidental that Jason possesses a circus background to match a portfolio dotted with work for "big tent" clients . . . That's Atlanta's prestigious (and sawdust-free) Creative Circus from whence he graduated - and big-tent clients like Time Warner Cable, Wal-Mart, McDonald's and a stellar stable of health systems.

During stints with several well-known agencies, Jason has applied his strategic marketing and writing talents toward award-winning campaigns for national brands, including Goodyear, Bayer and Best Western. His work has won multiple Addys and recognition from the Kansas City Omni Show and Creative Review Magazine.

Jason supervises Richmond office creative, including: VCU Medical Center, St. Francis, Rex Healthcare, Virginians for the Arts, FeedMore. It's all as cohesive and dazzling as - a three-ring circus.
