Client Testimonials

Before we were Mentum, we were P.Griffith Creative. And before that, we created award-winning campaigns for numberous of Fortune 500 brands at some of the world’s largest ad agencies. Here’s some of the quotes from our clients over the years that made us blush the most.

Having founded Advanced Urology Associates 37 years ago, l can say our greatest and most rapid growth has taken place when we began working with Pete Griffith and Mentum who have been an integral partner in our recent success. In just two short years, we nearly tripled our revenue as well as increased the motivation and dedication of our employees. The broadening of our services and the expansion of our locations in that brief time period was made possible through his marketing efforts, dedication, and professionalism. It truly has become both a highly valued and extremely enjoyable relationship.

DR. GREGORY A. LEWIS

Founder, Advanced Urology Associates

Pete was easily one of the best creative directors I worked with as an account planner. He always wanted to know how the target consumer would respond to any idea he was working on. While he of course wanted to push the envelope and surprise consumers he also strived to make sure the essence of his work would be highly relevant and would move product. Pete showed his passion for the work and the client during a difficult pitch where the agency was working hard to keep an important account. He kept true to his ideas but also was incredibly open to input from account planning as well as account management. The result was the creative idea he came up with allowed us to keep the client–relatively unheard on in today’s advertising environment. As a client now I wish I could work with more creatives like Pete.

MARK GILLEY

VP, Consumer Insights, Red Lobster/Darden Restaurants, Inc.

Pete has handled our website from day 1, and has done a great job. He has been very responsive in dealing with changes, and in accommodating the different areas that our firm provides services in.

KONRAD SHERINIAN

Managing Partner, The Law Offices of Konrad Sherinian, LLC

Working with Peter is like the textbook example of how the collaborative, creative process on a job should go. The open dialogue we had with Peter opened us up to new ideas as we threw ones back at him. It was a true give and take. He gives clear direction with enough room to open up the right side of your brain to its widest point.
Peter clearly has a tremendous amount of experience in advertising. He knows what’s been done, what’s currently hot in the ad world and is well versed in the process. With that said, I’d like to work with him on every project and hire him to teach the new ad students how its done.

LIZ MATASSA

Executive Producer, Target

I have had the pleasure of working with Pete on a few projects. Although we were usually under the gun time wise and the jobs were never less than complex, Pete always kept his sense of humor, came up with ideas to elevate the project without complicating matters and helped us turn out better work than we thought possible. I know the experience improved my game and I hope I get the opportunity to work with Pete again soon.

GABRIELLE YURO

Pete is a wonderful, creative, talented and warm person who excels at his work in marketing. His artistic qualities are outstanding. I highly recommend him.

DEIRDRE SCHLUNEGGER

Former Chief Executive Officer, Stop Foodborne Illness

Peter is a unique creative leader. He is very strategic, extremely innovative, but also practical in his approach. I have watched him deliver amazing work for both big and small brands with equal amounts of energy and passion. He is a go-to resource for all digital/online creative. His team’s work is always fresh and innovative! I have worked on many projects and he always seems to deliver spectacular work, well beyond expectation, even under short time frames and less than perfect budgets!

MARIE NEWMAN

Pete is an idea-generating creative and business leader. He understands that great ideas build momentum and generatebusiness growth. I worked with Pete and saw firsthand how he focused on ideas that would get attention, differentiate the brand and elicit the desired response.

MICHAEL JOHNSON

Mentum Creative is simply the bee’s knees!

SARA ODLAND-BEYNA

Manager, Community Relations, Alexian Brothers Hospital Network

Peter did a great job of turning our content into a very dynamic, exciting visual process. We found him to be an exceptional listener, highly creative, very responsive, and 100% committed to our aggressive deadlines. As an independent business, the value he delivered was well beyond what larger firms have provided us in the past.

DAVID FRITZ

President, Growth Solutions

Pete is the best marketing and website guy I know. He really cares about his clients and goes the extra mile for them. If you need a website, want to change your website, or need help branding Mentum is the company. You won’t be disappointed.

SUSAN ORR

Financial Institution IT Regulatory Consultant

I met Peter in his internship at Campbell-Mithun-Esty in Minneapolis. He could have been 19. We all knew he would be a star. He had an amazing “wrist”. Much later, we both worked on Kraft Foods…Pete, through JWT. He demonstrated that our early predictions were correct. A VERY young successful creative director at a big iconic Chicago agency. Always knew it.

SHELLEY LANDGRAF

Advertising Production Specialist, Kraft Brands

I’ve been working with Peter on a variety of copywriting projects in the past few years. Peter is very insightful and extremely effective in turning abstract concepts into actionable sentences. He is a great resource for advertising projects as well as for content generation. His style is lean, concise and as witty as the client can be. I love working with Pete and hope we will collaborate again in the near future.

ELENA PANIZZA

Partner, Strategist, Mojo

Peter is a creative who is a buisness leader first. He was perhaps the key player in our turnaround and nothing motivates me to get every execution right as much as giving him and his team the proper recognition they deserve.

STEVEN PROVOST

President, Long John Silver’s

Peter is the most creative person I know. He has done a great job for our company.

DR. MIKE COHEN

Past President, Meridian Medical Associates

Working with Pete Griffith over the last few years has been fun. He understands the ever-changing nature of the urology field and helped us form many new positive relationships between all our patients, physicians, nurses and assistants here at Advanced Urology Associates. Our growth in the past few years was unprecedented in large part because of these efforts. Plus, if he can get me to talk on camera, he could probably get anyone to!

RYAN LEWIS

PA-C, Advanced Urology Associates

Pete was my creative partner at Campbell-Mithun, Minneapolis. Although I worked with him all too briefly, we remain life-long friends. Why? Because he’s intelligent, straightforward, funny and multi-talented. Pete has a strong work ethic and a way with people that is genuine and enviable. Spend five minutes with him, and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

LEE SCHMIDT

Creative Director, Campbell-Mithun

Pete and I worked together together developing a highly successful brand identity and communications campaign for a Central DuPage Hospital (Now Cadence Health/Northwestern Medicine) The tracking results for the campaign “Always Thinking, Always Caring” were outrageously good – more change that the research company was used to seeing in such a short period of time. Pete brings curiosity, a strategic bent, quick creativity and a ready wit to his work.

NEAL STAMMEL

Stratigic Planner, Element 79

Pete developed advertising for Long John Silver’s that produced record setting sales. He’s fast. He’s good. And clients love him! I, on the other hand, got tired of him receiving all of the accolades.

JERRY CONNER

Senior VP, Element 79 Partners

Peter was the most creative and inspiring Creative Director I have been lucky to work under. I was able to incorporate many of hi techniques and processes to my own work. He is a creative genius!!!
