Client Services

No one takes better care of their clients than Kindle. Our client advocates dig in deep with every account to ensure the strategy is on point, the process is smooth and everyone’s needs are being met. Whether it’s a candid conversation, a unique perspective or a proactive solution, rest assured your Kindle account manager will know just what you need.

  • 80% of our team either represented client brands or were clients before Kindlers. This gives us a unique mix of industry experience – from food service and retail to pharma and tech.
  • 60% of us held roles in other functional areas before joining the client services team, including: production, digital, strategy, marketing and training.

& Design

We bring the brightest minds together to tell the right story at the right time, every time. Our creative and design team collaborate on each project to ensure the messaging captivates the eyes, ears and hearts of the audience.

  • Some of our best ideas come from our afterhours alter-egos as filmmakers, coaches, travelers, foodies, bloggers and film-buffs.
  • 81% of our team majored or minored in graphic design.


When Kindle manages a project, expect it to be on time, on track and on target. Led by our seasoned producers, this Kindle team is a group of meticulous overachievers and proactive problem-solvers who keep everything on schedule and on budget, all while pushing the envelope to execute truly extraordinary experiences.

  • Together, we have 197 years of production experience. Our newest team member has been at it for 2 years, while our most seasoned is still going strong after 30 years!
  • From Red Vines to Peanut M&Ms, our production team never goes on-site without an emergency stash of sugar.


A powerhouse of tech-minded, experience-driven go-getters, Kindle’s digital crew excels in engaging audiences on a variety of platforms. Whether the strategy is an ongoing campaign, a custom mobile solution or an interactive experience, our digital expertise lies in making that next swipe, click or tap worthwhile and wow-worthy.

  • The connection between music and code shines through – 80% of us are multi-instrumentalists.
  • Average typing speed: 109 words per minute

Content Strategy

Content is at the core of everything we do. That’s why the thinking behind that content needs to be informed, inspired and ingenious. Thanks to our content strategy bench, we can confidently say it is.

Our speechwriters, coaches and strategists all know the ins and outs of our clients’ industries just as well – if not better – than they do. And they know how to bring those ideas to life in ways that connect deeply with their audiences – whether it be in an ongoing campaign or live from a key leader on stage.

  • We all had our first jobs as preteens. Which means one of us has been working for 50+ years, another for 25+, and the rest somewhere in between.
  • Bolstering our collective internal communications expertise, we’re also trained in: change management, improv, counseling, facilitation, media training, social media marketing, creative writing, music, meditation, journalism, PR, international business, and advertising.


Kindle’s Learning Team is the industry leader when it comes to design, development and deployment of learning tools that motivate learners, grab their attention, and inspire changes. Our collection of talent brings over 100 years of training experience in the life sciences industry, partnering to not only ensure that all objectives are met, but are designed in a way that allows for elements to be built upon and transformed as future initiatives develop.

  • We are dedicated, disciplined, and no stranger to hard work. Over half of the folks on the Learning Team are former elite athletes and not strangers to the dedication it takes to truly be a leader in any discipline.
  • With our team spanning from Athens, Greece to Seattle, WA, we are truly able to develop 24 hours a day; in a sense creating time within projects.


Kindle can’t run without it's multitasking, deep in the details, overtly organized and always helpful ops team. From job numbers to expenses and everything in between, they handle the business of show business so the rest of us Kindlers can stay focused and creative while meeting all our client needs.

  • Running a successful production company isn’t the only running those on the operations side are familiar with. 20% of the team has run a marathon, 40% of the team has run a half-marathon and a whopping 80% of the team has driven past a Marathon.
  • And when it comes to business, they mean business. 6,285 invoices were processed through their department in 2018 alone.
