NINA HALE

Nina Hale

Founder

Nina’s brilliance, business acumen, and trademark passion have been the key ingredients to the agency’s sustained success. Though Nina has stepped back from day-to-day operations, she continues to serve on the agency’s board and remains a vibrant part of the agency’s life.

Prior to founding the agency, Nina received her B.A. in American Civilization from Brown University and a M.B.A. in Marketing, Communications, and Operations from the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. She is a proud alumna of Blake High School’s class of 1985.

Oh, but there’s more. A master upholsterer, Nina is currently studying fashion and clothing design and can often be found sewing and creating in her studio. She also serves on the Walker Art Center’s board of directors, travels the world, spends time with her family, birdwatches, and speaks at a variety of events, such as the United Nations Women’s Entrepreneurship Day.

Notable achievements:
2012 – Honored as an Industry Leader by the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal’s Women in Business Issue
2016 – The (Real) Power 50 by Minnesota Business Magazine
2016 & 2017 – Forbes Agency Council member
