I’m sure we can make wonderful things together for several years to come.”Rabbath joins an award-winning production team led by Kristin Bass-Petersen, VP of Digital Services, and Deirdre Morales, VP of Content Development.

Today, their portfolio of work includes clients nationwide from California to New York to Florida. “From the day I started this advertising agency, my mantra has always been, ‘Stop selling. Start storytelling,” said Samantha Strickland. “Fred Rabbath has shown a unique ability to weave brand messages into his work while making you laugh, cry, jump, and most of all, think. That’s what storytelling is all about.”###About The Pod Advertising The Pod Advertising is an award-winning, full-service marketing firm focused on credit unions and other good guys.
