About Us

Envoy, Inc. is a full-service advertising agency that has been around for more than 25 years. We're pretty sure our longevity and success is due to one simple reason: we consistently solve our clients' problems in a timely fashion while giving them the personal attention they deserve. That's it. No fluff. No bluster. Just results.

Chris Doyle


Kathy Broniecki

Chief Strategy Officer/Owner

Penny Hatchell

Senior Vice President/Owner

Chris has the fortune to work with a super-talented creative team and takes every chance to steal their glory for his own gain [LIE]. In fact, he's become a legend in his own time mind [TRUE]. But, in between client meetings, brainstorm sessions and company cookouts, he still loves to write TV and radio scripts, websites, print ads or whatever else comes along. Turn-ons: the South, a good superhero flick and ice cream. Turn-offs: car repairs, cable bills and traffic.

Kathy loves to shop. That is why she plans to work beyond retirement age. Thank goodness she has a sharp mind that is still able to do brilliant strat plans. And she eats a ton of Hiland cottage cheese. "It's good protein," she says.

What can we say about Penny… she's complicated, extremely organized and likes things just so, but she has a little wild side. She keeps us in line but dreams of being on the road with John Mellencamp.

Kelly Bentley

Account Executive

Stuart Bohlim

Art Director

Barb Chvala

Administrative Assistant

You can find Kelly playing an inordinate amount of Katy Perry on the nearest jukebox and interpretive dancing in public. She's usually the brunt of everyone's jokes, but gets her revenge in Nerf gun battles with the web team. Her bio wouldn't be complete without mention of her female cat, Douglas Fresh. Meow. (Also see: Resident Cat Lady)

Stuart was born. When he was 7, he drew large dinosaurs on his bedroom walls using crayons. He figured out around the age of 13 that people would notice or pay him for this skill. That's still what he's doing... The End.

Media Assistant, Media Buyer, Media Director, Account Executive, Sr. Vice President, Partner/Owner, Administrative Assistant... She's spent 24 years of job-hopping at Envoy!

Susie Kaup

Vice President, Client Services

Karla Lubeck

Account Coordinator

Brandon Moser

Web Developer

Despite her job-share/part-time status, she's not lazy, just really damn efficient. Trying to be clever while being comical is not one of her strong suits, neither is writing in the third person. So this is where it ends.

For the few hours a week Karla is not managing projects for the best clients around, she can be found enjoying the great outdoors. Except in the winter... because you know, winter is the worst of all the seasons.

Brandon is our resident web developer. He spends most of his day feverishly writing code... or so we're told, he's somewhat reclusive. His favorite activities include taking a sweet hit off his inhaler and sharpening a handful of fresh pencils. He's also known for his trademark fear of spiders and girls who talk to him.

Brooke Ortner

Media Director

Tom Sain

Vice President, Creative Services

Jasonea Shockey

Vice President, Client Services

Clients appreciate Brooke's deep knowledge of the media landscape. Fellow staffers appreciate her sharing the goodies that come to her attention every Holiday season. When not in the midst of an intense media negotiation, Brooke enjoys spending time with her family and spotting doppelgangers.

Wanting to be a cartoonist, Tom developed his first weekly comic strip at age 11, with a viewing audience of 7 (all relatives, incidentally). Since then, he's attempted to increase the audience for his doodling. With traditional arts training, Tom tries to cram artistic aesthetics into commercial designs without anyone noticing. So far, he's getting away with it.

Jasonea is Butter's owner. Butter is the adorable mini Goldendoodle who basically lives at Envoy Wed – Fri when she works her awesome job share schedule. She is the person who used to be recognized with a hello when she entered the office, but is now greeted with either “BUTTER!!!” or “No Butter today?” (said sadly) She feels valued.

Liz Stienblock


Lee Turkovich

Jr. Account Executive

Patrick White

Senior Writer/Producer

Liz serves as the voice, and often the face, of Envoy. Greeting everyone with a smile and sunny disposition. But in her off-hours she is known in Roller Derby circles as "Elizabeth the Eliminator." That's why everyone at Envoy tries to stay on her good side.

Lee desperately wants to join the office dog owners club, but has yet to make this elite group. When she's not working on web updates and blogs, she's usually raiding the candy jar, burning popcorn and stealing Kelly's Nerf darts.

After studying film at the University of Iowa, Patrick put his skills to use playing guitar and keys for a touring garage band. Sadly, the advertising bug bit, and he was lured from his life of calm stability into the seedy and unpredictable world of creative marketing, where he has remained ever since.

Dan Wroblewski

Senior Web Developer

Christine Zegelis

Traffic Manager


The Turtle

Disregard that perpetual look on his face that would lead you to believe he just stepped in something squishy with his socks on. It's not you, it's him. You see, he has three teenage daughters at home. Dan really does care about the work he does and loves the team he works with. No, really.

No excuse is acceptable to Christine when it comes to work not being completed, but cash really will help. She is so busy organizing everybody else's work schedule, she cannot keep track of her own to-do list. She is just waiting for the day when she can get paid to read, rescue dogs and cats and collect nerd paraphernalia.

Though he doesn't always keep his head above water — like it matters to him — Winky's gurgle is worse than his bite.
