Several Sextonites have been with us for many moons, while some are more recent additions. This friendly bunch brings a blend of wisdom and spunk that translates into customer experiences that are second to none. And while our offerings are applicable to nearly any industry, we’ve concentrated efforts on becoming experts in a few: healthcare, medical-device manufacturing, education, associations, and financial services. Not entirely by accident, Sexton’s secure data handling and variable messaging technologies are especially relevant to these groups.
Specialty: Healthcare, Medical-Device Manufacturing, Education
Tim’s marketing and communications experience dates back more than 25 years, beginning with his family’s commercial printing business. Always a visionary, he demonstrates an almost clairvoyant ability to foresee viable communications opportunities, especially relating to technological advancements. Among the first in the Twin Cities, Tim was instrumental in introducing variable and Web-enabled technologies that provide the foundation for many of Sexton’s advanced services. He is our principled principal—ethical to a fault. You’ll greatly appreciate his ability to efficiently process complex situations and present logical solutions.
Specialty: Education, Associations
Jerry developed his consulting skills through a career spanning 29 years at Sexton. Only Jerry’s integrity and the highest level of service imaginable match his experience. Clients relish his print knowledge and steadfast care. He’s a church elder who still likes to volunteer for the small things. At home, Jerry loves grocery shopping, which is perplexing. Would that be considered great service, abundant experience, or high integrity?
Specialty: Healthcare, Associations, Financial Services
With her degree in graphic communications management, Tracy decided not to join Sexton right out of college. It’s not that Sexton didn’t try! After following her career for three years, Sexton offered Tracy an opportunity “she couldn’t refuse.” This poised young woman has it all: personality, intelligence, and drive. She’s up on the latest technologies and marketing strategies with new and innovative ideas. Tracy ran the steeple chase in college, raced snowmobiles, and has even skydived—just a few examples of what we call “drive.”
Dave has more than 25 years of consulting experience, the last 13 with Sexton. Dave has a wonderful ability to bring out the best in people, projects, and campaigns. He truly enjoys working with his clients and delivers unsurpassable results. Some of you might recognize Dave from your college days as lead singer for the band Fortune—think shoulder-length hair. Dave still sits in with several local musicians.
Specialty: Healthcare, Education, Financial Services
Paul joined Sexton as a consultant straight from college. During his 11-year career, he became one of the company’s top producers—seemingly overnight and with good reason. Paul has an uncanny talent for bringing together the right people at the right time with the right abilities. He orchestrates strategy, design, marketing, and technology with incredible results. Probably the highest praise we can give Paul is that he’s really, almost tolerable during football season—for a Packers fan.
Jeff is a consulting veteran of more than 15 years, the last seven with Sexton. Jeff grew up in a family-owned print shop, where he learned the craft of printing and developed a keen business sense. He inherently sees beyond any one project, always keeping an eye fixed on his clients’ business goals and objectives. Jeff’s clients consider him an incredible resource. Jeff honed his skill for staying on target by pitching for the Liberty State Bank Mud Hens. He was a lefty with a mean curveball.
Specialty: Medical-Device Manufacturing, Education
Tom has been a communications consultant for more than 18 years, the last eight with Sexton. He’s a print enthusiast who is nationally recognized in the industry. Tom has Heterochromia iridium, a fancy way of saying his eyes are two different colors, which he proudly and shamelessly self-promotes. Tom’s full-throttle personality makes it easy to envision him as an all-American collegiate swimmer—sporting a Mohawk haircut, no less. We have pictures!
VP, Digital Production
Specialty: Medical-Device Manufacturing
Don’t be fooled by Shawn’s soft-spoken demeanor. He’s tenacious when it comes to streamlining digital workflows. Rarely without a device, app, or widget to make work more efficient, he’s one of the Twin Cities’ leading experts in the field. So if you’re in need of system audits, workflow management solutions, Web-enabled services, software configuration, or file troubleshooting, give Shawn a call. He’ll be happy to help over the phone or in person. But please don’t get too attached, we’re equally tenacious about keeping him on our team.
VP, Marketing and Business Development
Specialty: Financial Services, Construction Products
With more than 20 years of experience implementing marketing strategies, Jeff demonstrates a rare combination of left- and right-brained talents. He’s perfectly comfortable analyzing components of a data-driven campaign and, in the next minute, developing creative content. He has held vice president of marketing positions with companies that included business-to-business, consumer, retail, service, and manufacturing operations. With function always a priority, he says that his biggest thrills come from measured results of successful promotional programs. (We know they’re really second to coaching baseball in his spare time.)
Specialty: Education, Associations
Peggy has been in the graphic arts industry for more than 26 years, the last 19 with Sexton. A stickler for detail, she takes a hands-on approach. Peggy’s clients absolutely adore her commitment to their satisfaction and the success of their projects. A proud cancer survivor, Peggy brings a world of business and life experiences to anyone she works with. Her can-do attitude was exposed early in her career by training burly press operators on Multilith presses. A woman’s work is never done.
VP, Information Technology
Specialty: Healthcare, Medical-Device Manufacturing
Jeff works with clients to implement the most ambitious marketing strategies. His efforts have resulted in integrated data-driven communications solutions, synchronized multichannel campaigns, automated mobile and social media messaging, and more. From a product and services perspective, he creatively combines marketing, branding, editorial, production, and distribution processes. If you want a dose of innovation, see Jeff. Whether you’re a coworker or a client, his passion is inescapable. And as a wrestling member of the Augsburg College Athletic Hall of Fame, you shouldn’t even try.
