Sometimes it's more effective to let the people we work with do the talking.
Lee Insko, Client Experience, Partner
LEE IS KNOWN AROUND HERE AS THE "CLIENT'S BEST FRIEND," AN HONOR HE'S EARNED THROUGH YEARS OF ACTIVELY LISTENING, SEEING NEEDS, PLUGGING HOLES, AND GENERALLY PUTTING PEOPLE AT EASE. He also possesses a knack for seeing the 30,000 foot view of a challenge without missing the details, a talent which just comes naturally for Lee.
Lee has over 22 years experience working within higher ed communications serving as VP of Sales at DC for twelve years and Director of Marketing at Samford University for ten years. This experience combined with relentless research and a desire to learn have served his clients well; Messiah College, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, Crossway Baptist Church Australia, Campbellsville University, Christ Church Fort Lauderdale, Mere Anglicanism, and Ouachita Baptist University among hundreds of others have reaped the benefit of his expertise.
We're also pretty sure that Lee has found a way to clone himself. It's not possible for one person to do as much as he does each day: faithful leader at 5°, father of three, husband (of one), committed Christ follower, avid blog reader, social networking aficionado, daily Bruce Springsteen listener, UK fan, and always there any time you need him. He's got to be delegating some of that stuff to Lee 2.0.
Mike Robinson, Creative Director, Partner
SINCE 1996, MIKE HAS BEEN DOING TOP-NOTCH CREATIVE FOR CLIENTS AROUND THE GLOBE. A Samford grad, he combines a unique understanding of the Christian higher ed marketspace with a desire to get to a client's essence in order to create communication solutions that are personal and effective. As our cultural pulse keeper, he has a keen awareness of the critical issues affecting educational and faith-based organizations.
Clients that have benefited from Mike's ability to understand and bring to the surface their distinctives include the Missouri Baptist University, LeTourneau University, Fellowship Associates, Alabama Baptist Children's Homes & Family Ministries, Golden Gate Seminary, Point University, Carson-Newman University, and literally hundreds more. Besides client work, he makes sure the 5° team stays synced up with our own mission and values.
Mike has many passions. Fly fishing, fly tying, painting (mostly fly fishing scenes), taking his kids fly fishing... you get the picture. He is a soccer fanatic and has more jerseys in his closet than most people have socks in their sock drawers. He's a passionate gardener, outdoorsman, and an avid Wendell Berry reader. Food might be the biggest rival for his attention if not his affection. Seriously, try getting anything out of him during a lunch meeting while food is on the table—good luck.
