Lunching with Giants

It is every aspiring ad person’s dream to walk along side the giants of the industry, to get to know the people shaping the world around us. Lunching With Giants (LwG) gives Ad2 members a unique opportunity at a one-on-one lunch with a Denver advertising giant. Not to hound the giant for a job, but to pick their brain on the industry and to shine a light on what it takes to work in advertising. In our first installment of LwG, Jenn Hohn, Associate CD at Vladimir Jones graciously lent her time to sit down with a young creative who hopped a bus from Boulder to downtown Denver for the opportunity.

LwG II features Melissa Humbert, Director of Account Management at 90Octane. Melissa has over 17 years experience working in creative, full-service, media and interactive agencies. Her expertise lies in account management, new business development and executive management. She has worked with international, national, regional and local accounts across automotive, industrial, technology, non-profit, travel and tourism, retail, real estate, health care and financial verticals. Melissa received her B.A. in Communication and Advertising from Purdue University in Indiana.

RootDown has generously provided a gift card for lunch. If you are a hungry young account person or student looking to ignite your career, contact us at

If you are a local ad giant looking to help out some kids walking in your footsteps we would love to talk to you as well.
