Estipona Group - creative agency in Reno Nevada

We’re virtual. But real.
(Because we like paradoxes.)

You know what happens when you don’t have to invest in walls, roofs, floors or any other limit-imposing aspect of a physical office?

You get to invest instead in creativity: talent and technology that together, kick some serious ad/PR/marketing/communication booty.

Welcome to our ‘virtual’ reality. Come meet the players.

 

Our mission:
Work smart. Play nice.
Do good and whatnot.

Team

Edward Estipona
President & CEO

Edward Estipona, is on a roll—and we’re not just talking pedaling 72 miles around Lake Tahoe. In addition to spinning through weekends on two wheels, Edward and his 25-year old agency have been gathering no moss as they transform marketing in the West. Here’s his story.

Paige Galeoto
VP of Creative

Just as “at home” sipping coffee outside a European café, enjoying an après-ski cocoa or relishing a carb-loaded meal after a long ride down a rugged mountain trail is our worldly creative director, Paige Galeoto. Here’s her story.

Jackie Shelton
VP of Public Relations

She’s the life of any party — mostly because she likely planned it (down to the last costume detail, themed hors d'oeuvre and comprehensive guest list of movers and shakers in the know). This is our VP of PR, Jackie Shelton. Here’s her story.

Mikalee Byerman
VP of Strategy

She literally wrote the book on Reno — channeling her wit and unique perspective on life into a compelling and engaging writing voice. And her creative insights also help inform strategy for Estipona Group clients. Meet Mikalee Byerman, VP of Strategy. Here’s her story.

VP of Programming

Nicole Dion
Account Director

Her breezy demeanor and infectious personality make Nicole Rose Dion an ideal account director. She keeps her clients organized, her team on task, and her style — and social media game — are always on point. Here’s Nicole’s story.

Media Director

Never one to let the big one get away, Jennifer Tapia takes the same approach to media buying as fishing - be persistent, patient, prepared and use the right bait. Here's a tale (but not a big fish story) about our Media Director.

Senior Art Director

She's sipped from all design disciplines and hasn't settled on her favorite flavor. Conveniently, she has a real taste for taking a client's complex marketing challenge and finding just the right design solution. She's Senior Art Director Nickie Price. Here’s her story.

Andrew Johnson
Video & Animation Producer

For Andy Johnson, the journey is the destination. He has spent decades telling stories through video and animation, creating compelling narratives in digital realms — as well as in real life. Just ask his car, Sally. Seriously, that’s her name. Here’s his story.
