"We count on Weber to deliver value and execute quickly. We feel like we can ask them to do anything and they will do it. They told me a long time ago that they never say "no" and they haven't."
Chuck Hoober Partner Hoober, Inc.
I love advertising. I love working with clients and making stuff happen. Running this agency has given me the chance to market in a fresh new way. Over the years I've surrounded myself with people who not only get stuff done, and get it done fast, but who love helping our clients.

Married to Jennifer
I believe in the WAM philosophy: getting stuff done is the number one priority of the day - EVERY day. I eat, breathe and sleep that mantra. That is why I love creating and executing our clients' marketing plans. Everyday it's another fresh challenge because we do whatever it takes to make it happen. No job is above us or below us.

Member of Abraham C. Treichler Lodge, and attend church at St. Paul's United Methodist Church in E-town
Married to my wife Melissa since 1995 and two very naughty cats, Ovie and Lucy
I feel liberated! Since we never tell customers "NO", I don't need to worry about fitting into a niche, or about pleasing some bureaucracy. So I'm free to work on delivering results by employing the correct marketing strategy. And the end result: our clients' interests always are a priority.
My kids take up most of my time, but when I do get some free time I enjoy traveling, the beach and gardening.
Married to Todd Haberstroh with two daughters, Daniella and Abigail.
How does a rocket propulsion engineer wind up managing an advertising agency? Databases aren't just integral to keeping a satellite in the air. They also are an amazing tool for delivering information to our clients, which increases sales. I love creating and building unique projects - and this agency is definitely unique.

Married To Susan; Two kids : A teenage son who just got his driver's license, and a daughter just into her teens.
I like to be creative. But while it's rewarding to come up with a clever, funny or emotional concept for an ad, if in the end the ad doesn't sell the product or the benefit to the target audience, then it hasn't done its job. Which means I haven't done mine.

The Godfather of Graphics
I was a born artist. So I enjoy being the head of the Art Department, and doing everything that I was born to do: designing ads, billboards, sell sheets and more, while managing the flow of an entire team of very talented people. Although tight deadlines may be routine around here, our jobs always get done.
Drawing cartoons, playing poker (with the WAM crew at lunch and also with my poker buddies), bicycle riding (To and from work) and camping in Potter County.
My wife Elizabeth and I were married in 2007 and have 2 kids – Oliver born in July 2011, and Lucy born September 2014.
Fastest Draw in the East/AE
I believe I'm here in this life to provide entertaining, amusing and dynamic visuals that people enjoy and relate to. I've done that during a very successful career as principal at Bot Roda Studio - and, during this fresh chapter as part of Weber Advertising, I plan to continue pursuing growth and success, only now in a dual role, as both an illustrator and an AE.
I enjoy reading, exercise, and playing ice hockey as a goaltender on two teams at Regency Sports Rink.
Married to Joanne with two great kids, Kate and Zack who are pursuing their own lives and dreams now and sharing the house with our cat Stiegel. As a former owner of two German Shorthair Pointer dogs we now realize that dogs have owners and cats have staff.
Official "i" Dotter & "t" Crosser
As my job title indicates, proofreading is all about details. But my job doesn't end there. I routinely navigate the congested PR highway for our clients, for whom I ferret out publications for press release placement. Plus I carefully administer the insurance and retirement benefits for our employees.

My daily work regimen is all about service through numbers. The agency counts on me to make sure everything related to finances and billing flows smoothly. But even more significantly, so do our clients. I'm committed to being accurate and timely, so that businesses can maximize their potential and achieve their goals.
Kids' sporting events; being WAM Slam's most vocal fan
Member of Harvest Bible Chapel (Youth Leader & Tech Team Member)
I enjoy a fast pace. The diversity and volume of work here is wonderful! One moment I am working a technology plan, and the next I'm pulling permits for a major client project. As a plus, I'm surrounded by a small, tight-knit group of associates who always keep things hopping!

Married to Abby, and we have two cats: Carlos & Logan
Deadlines never scare me. During my many years in the radio business, I learned that if you want to start producing results tomorrow, you have to meet your deadlines - TODAY. So when I came onboard at Weber, and saw how deadline-driven - and results oriented - everyone was, I thought "this is my kind of place."

Digital Deeds Done Daily
Daily isn't just my last name, it's also a work philosophy that I've adopted in my career – and one which fits in nicely with the “get stuff done” attitude here at Weber. My digital marketing background has trained me to provide digital strategies and deliverables that produce results on a “daily” basis. Which is vital in today's world of short attention spans and instantaneously- gratifying tweets.
Playing softball, finding amazing food and cocktail spots around Lancaster, messing around in my vegetable garden, working on DIY home updates, and hitting the open road in my white Wrangler Unlimited.
Married to my husband, Michael Kreider, since February 2016
It's important in the advertising business - in any business, really - to build strong relationships. My many years in sales and marketing, both in the States and internationally, have taught me that you can't help a client build and grow their brand if you don't know the people behind it. That's just one of the many reasons I am so happy to be a part of a Weber team that's been successfully building strong bonds and brands for decades.
Spare time can be hard to come by, but I really enjoy being outdoors, traveling, cooking, and a good book.
Social Media Guru
I am responsible for making social media profitable and increasing traffic on client websites. My other priorities are managing enormous databases for our grocery store clients, as well as setting up our sound systems, projectors and movie screens for our client's corporate meetings.
All things baseball, fantasy sports, reading, exercising, beer & the occasional cigar.
Account Point Guard
I lead the office in assists. I oversee all kinds of print ads and projects, and I work all of the in-house systems, usually on a quick turn. Working with the client, I make sure the ad that we are doing promotes the brand and that all the details are correct. And, thanks to our talented writers and designers, I pull it all off.
Pick up sports, classic rock music, video games, medieval role playing, walking with my dog, cheering for the Eagles (not the band - the sports team - well both actually)
Co-commissioner of my fantasy football league!
No wife or kids, but I am the youngest of 5 - so I have 4 great sisters and lots of nieces and nephews.
I came from the printing industry, where we were always on tight deadlines. While the scope of what I do has expanded, my training from my previous job has served me well. What I enjoy most is building relationships with my clients and working with my coworkers to help to grow our clients' business.
Cycling, running, and sitting on the beach
I am a deal maker, aka a media buyer. I have bought Super Bowl ads, and, because I never say "no", also a bus, sound systems and 5000 cupcake trees (yes, the little stands that hold cupcakes). I am also proud of the proprietary media buying system I helped to develop.
Traveling, Reading, Working Out, Playing & Watching Sports (Ice Hockey & Baseball in particular)
Free Candy Ice Hockey, DCRE Tournament Hockey, WAM Slam Softball, St Paul's Church Softball
You could say I earned my "wings" while I was an intern at Weber. Working in the trenches, so to speak, running errands and doing odd jobs, I discovered that I thrive in a fast-paced work environment – and the agency rewarded my gung-ho attitude and willingness to do whatever it takes to help clients by promoting me to my current full-time position in co-op advertising.
Hanging out with friends and family, reading, hiking, wine tasting, and traveling.
I look at life with a designer's eye. Whether it's a beautiful landscape or a well-designed print ad, I appreciate great design. Because it's so easy and fulfilling to bring all that I absorb into my daily work, I feel quite at home making ad design and brands appealing to consumers.
Bike riding with my dad, gardening - I love just being outdoors!
My husband is Matt. And Erin (Brand Builder) Wickersham is my cousin!
Design is my life. I notice how everything around me is designed - from proper kerning to accurate shadows - and will point out those finer details to anyone who will listen. I have a special place in my heart for great typography and I feel right at home when designing a project that will not only "wow" a client, but ultimately get results.
Swimming, reading, shopping, watching football and Netflix

World Wide Web-Slinger
I build websites, in weeks, not months. I design and code custom solutions geared towards getting the right information to customers. No two businesses are the same, so why use templates. I can streamline the online marketing process to communicate a consistent message through the web, email and in-store devices.
Tennis, Softball, Hiking, Mountain Biking, Trying To Take Card Shark Title From Brandon
Wife: Kaitlyn, Daughter: Eliana
We have done some pretty crazy things. Like building a nationwide network of in store promotional television displays and creating a program that makes signs and posters out of databases. It's all part of extending our pledge to Get Stuff Done in our IT department, and further proof that we are never afraid of unique or different jobs.
Co-Organizer for Central Pennsylvania Linux Users Group
It's very important to me that, in life, I get to do what I love to do. At Weber I'm kept busy coding and arranging eye-capturing designs that reach the World Wide Web - and beyond. Though that may sound challenging, it's also fun, because I get to stretch myself creatively, even working on the occasional email campaign or custom WordPress site. So, yes - I love what I do!
Playing Music, Cooking, Hiking, Gaming, and Movie Watching.
Slicer, Dicer & Everything Else
I do whatever is needed. Work with grocery store circulars, work in the large format printing department, and even client painting projects. Name it, and I've probably had a hand in it at some point in time. Want further proof? I even helped with the renovation project on our building!

The Duke of Design
I've always been passionate about creating designs in multiple media – billboards, magazines, logos, you name it. Which means I never get bored, not even when I'm designing multiple versions of the same ad (my specialty here at Weber). Whether it's creating a publication from scratch or updating a sign, I live by this personal creed: I never settle for mediocre, and neither should our clients.
I enjoy binge watching television shows (but then I feel bad for sitting on the couch all day, so I exercise). I also enjoy the beach, my wife and dog, and eating.
As the in-house video ninja, quick TV commercial edits aren't just possible, they're more affordable. Further, our video is often used to make websites better, as well as in-store displays. And as an added plus, we also do photography and video shoots. Need to enhance or manipulate a photo? Relax, I have 20 years of experience in Photoshop.

Brand Building Hot Shot
I enjoy the creative process. So much so, that I look forward to helping clients define their brand benefits through appealing visual design and creative promotional ideas. Much of the work I do helps clients sell more to their current customers, as well as attract new customers.
Painting, traveling, bowling, and watching movies
You could say design genes are in my family. Kelly Baker is my cousin … and our great grandfather designed the famous ESSO gas station logo!
Queen of Numbers
My office is not like a regular accounting office. We keep things interesting. For example, by including the bills we receive with the bills clients receive, our clients can be confident that they are getting what they are paying for. Plus, we also help with co-op allocations, just ask!

Manager of Miscellaneous
I strongly believe that smiles can be contagious. Throughout my life, I have thrived on making the people around me happy, while at the same time relentlessly pursuing opportunities for personal growth. My work at WAM allows me to do both of those things every day! Whether I’m working with numbers, systems, programming or, my favorite, fundraising - tag along with me on a typical work day, and I guarantee you’ll be smiling!
Hiking, camping, traveling, swimming, going to the beach, dancing, volunteering and eating great food.
Sultan of Signage
If LFP was a baseball team, I'd be the General Manager. I seek out new accounts to add to WAM's lineup while managing current ones, but I also help coordinate the daily operations of the printing department - doing everything from setting up large format jobs to fixing any equipment when it breaks down. And I also assist with sign installations.
Fishing, gardening, painting, coaching my son's Donegal Baseball team, and attending Donegal Soccer games
Wife Karen, and two sons, Keaghan and Kaedin
When a client needs a sign or banner, I say "let's rock and roll!" Once the signage is printed, I stitch it, or mount it - or both - and then go "on tour" with Witt for the professional set-up and installation. The end result: the graphic arts equivalent of a rock anthem.
music in general, and Insane Clown Posse in particular; live concerts
On-Site General Contractor
Just call me the CEO of infrastructure. WAM is housed in a unique historical building, and so there has been a lot of remodeling, painting, lighting, plumbing, window and siding work that needed to be done (which I did) – and those things all require daily maintenance (which I do). Plus I also get involved with building and installing things outside the office – signs, billboards and (my specialty) unexpected projects..
Volunteering for my church's Youth Group; taking Adult Mission trips to disaster areas to assist with rebuilding.
married to Linda since 1983; four kids, six grandkids
It's definitely the digital age - and I am definitely the man when it comes to digital production. Everything that gets produced here at Weber - from booklets to signs, banners to trade show booths - is touched by me before it goes out. And if I touch it, you can trust that it's not only first-rate, but it'll bring results for the client.
Happy to Help You
Know what's really special about being a specialist at WAM? I love getting "down in the mud" (or rather, the ink!) and that's what I get to do every day! Printing signs, brochures and banners … running large format printers and digital printers … and cutting and mounting signs. But you know what's even better than getting my hands dirty? A job done on time and done well!
Spending time with my family, making art and music, and just plain enjoying life day-to-day!
