Lucid Advertising: What's the Secret? The secret of Lucid is no real secret: It’s the people. Mike Morse went out and hired really great people – creative, professionals who love what they do, know what they’re doing, and are a joy to work with. And when we all work together, “great” becomes “exceptional.” If it sounds simple, it’s not. Staffing an agency with friendly experts who play well with others is next to impossible, which is why agencies like Lucid are rare. But we’re here and we’re eager to work with you. Mike Morse President Mike Morse, President and Founder, has over 26 years in the advertising business bringing brands to life and making a difference for clients where it counts – their bottom line. Mike sets the tone for the entire agency with his passion for creative direction, business development, client relationships and ensuring maximum return on investment for every client, every day. Matt Hayes Director of Client Services We think that more business is won or lost from bad customer service, than bad creative. That’s where Matt’s 24 years of experience of superior customer service helps Lucid shine. He has seen just about everything while working for award-winning agencies in Miami and Atlanta, including running Client Services for a two-time Ad Age Small Agency of the Year. In the middle of that, he spent ten years at The Weather Channel in sales and strategic marketing. No, he doesn’t know what tomorrow’s weather will be. Yes, he knows Jim Cantore. Andrea Cofield Director of Operations Relationships are what we do here at Lucid. Lucky us! We have Andrea Cofield to help us form new ones and tighten those existing ones. Andrea has worked in non-profit fundraising and event planning for more than 10 years and excels in meeting deadlines while building relationships, both internally and externally. She looks forward to establishing solid relationships with clients and working to propel each client toward achieving their goals.
