Key Members of Our Team

KGI_Design_Team_Nora_500a

Senior Art Director/Designer

Nora Ryder
Nora graduated from FIT with Kim, and went on to work for ad agencies in NYC. Now they have reunited at KGI. She brings her extensive experience and great enthusiasm to all the projects she takes on. We call her “Lucky Spice” because she has the amazing ability of finding things... even a coworker’s expensive prescription sunglasses which were lost in the ocean on one of our Annual KGI Retreats.
KGI_Design_Team_Michelle

Graphic Designer

Michelle Fink
Michelle originally worked in the music business before going back to school at FIT for graphic design. We consider her our “tech wizard” and she constantly goes above and beyond to keep us organized. You can find her blasting the Jonas Brothers in the office and always counting down the days until her next concert.
KGI_Design_Team_Ruth

Social Media Manager

Ruth Sobey
Ruth is the queen of social media and PR! She stays on top of the current news and trends. With her wonderful instincts, she gets the word out to promote our agency and clients. You can find her citing obscure movie quotes all day long and taking dance breaks at least twice a day.

Office Manager

Elizabeth Castiglione
Elizabeth spent most of her career in NYC before joining KGI. With her vast experience and resourcefulness, she keeps our agency running smoothly. Elizabeth is also a fabulous vacation planner. Our grateful team reaped the rewards of that talent when she coordinated the “Greatest Of All Time” Annual KGI Retreat in Montauk. We’re so looking forward to the next one she plans… Costa Rica please!
