MEET ANNA

HALFPENNY

FOUNDER / CMO

For over 17 years, Anna has worked at some of the top agencies in Canada helping big brands achieve their business goals including BMW, Canadian Tire, TJX, Molson Coors, McDonald’s & Scotiabank. 

I've led integrated marketing plans with best-in-class results and hold multiple Effie and Cassie awards recognized for campaign effectiveness, best launch and long-term success. 

I'm a hybrid of strategy and business development. My experience includes business planning, marketing strategy, operations, portfolio management, product development, production and team development.  

While working in the Advertising & Brand building world, I had an entrepreneurial streak. On the side, I built two successful small businesses from the ground up. It was this that gave me incredible insight into what owners really need and where to invest their hard-earned dollars to help drive business forward.
