IF IT DOESN’T SCARE YOU A LITTLE, IT’S NOT WORTH DOING

    WELCOME ALL DOERS & OPTIMISTS

  • Nick Johnson

    President

    Midwest values with NYC intensity.

    Prior to joining Gotham in 2010, Nick spent almost a decade as a partner building independent Venables Bell into a national, creative powerhouse. He’s also spent time at GSD&M, Zimmerman & Partners and Bernstein-Rein – in his hometown of Kansas City. Past clients include Rolling Stone, Barclays, HBO, Intel, Wal-Mart, Coca-Cola, ConocoPhillips, ConAgra, Audi, Robert Mondavi and Kraft, among others.

    When he’s not helping shape and grow an indie within a holding company, Nick enjoys checking far-flung destinations and restaurants off his long list.

  • Karin Knutson

    Managing Partner/Head of Strategy

    A builder of brands, independent agencies and houses.

    Karin’s 19 years in the business have taken her from Fallon to Venables Bell & Partners (where she first met Gotham¹s President, Nick Johnson) to Planning Director at Wieden + Kennedy to her own Strategy Consultancy. During that time she’s worked all over the world, on the biggest clients in the world including Nike, Miller High Life, Barclay’s HBO, Target, and Microsoft. Karin has been recognized with EFFIEs, Cannes Lions, Clio Awards, Kelly Awards, OBIE Awards, Addy Awards and more.

    When she’s not strategizing, Karin can be found people watching, golfing, pretending she’s a chef, drinking Guinness, reading anything with a heavy dose of sarcasm or DIY-renovating her mid-century modern home with her husband and Polydactl cat.

  • Todd Beeby

    Managing Partner/Head of Creative

    It’s not just where you go. It’s how you get there. And how sweaty.

    Todd’s been creating ideas, innovating products, and overseeing campaigns for a wide range of clients for 19 years. From tech giants like Google and Samsung, to giants in their own right, like the U.S. Army, Mercedes-Benz, Emirates airlines, Kellogg’s and Beam spirits. Along the way, he’s earned a fair share of industry awards for clients: D&AD, Clio, ADC, ANDY, AICP.

    When not at Gotham, Todd commutes by bicycle, dodging a good portion of the city’s 15,000 yellow cabs along the way. Once home, he helps his (far) better half raise their three-year-old son.

  • Suzanne Lau

    Managing Partner/Head of Account Management

    Beer, Cheese, Football &
    Fancy Shoes
    (in no particular order)

    Long cold winters in Wisconsin and older, male siblings prepared Suzanne well for a life as an Account lead. From her early days at creative start-ups in San Francisco to Gotham in NYC, Suzanne has fought hard for great work on everything from milk and wine to diapers and technology. All while wearing impractical footwear.

    In her spare time she is raising a pop-star wannabe 8 year old daughter alongside her also-in-advertising husband in Jersey City.
