Jan is the inspiration behind The Idea Factory. After amassing more than a decade of executive management and marketing experience at big agencies and Fortune 500 companies, she discovered an underserved niche in the market. There were hundreds of companies asking for a marketing agency with account executives who care and creative people who think. So Jan set out to meet their needs by applying her skills as a communicator, art director, creative director, graphic designer, and marketing executive. Since, she has worked on numerous commercial accounts and produced several award-winning radio, television and print advertising campaigns. She is actively involved with a number of community and professional organizations including serving on the board of Working in Communications (WIC) and the Las Vegas Advertising Federation. As vice president of communications for the International Association of Business Communicators, she earned an international award of merit for chapter management in communication. In 2000, Jan was named WIC Agency Principal of the Year.
