Drew Holmes | Head Honcho
Born and raised in Phoenix, AZ & Grand Lake, Oklahoma until I moved to Wichita to attend Friends University. I graduated with a major in Business Administration and a minor in Marketing. Now with over 25 years experience in the advertising world, I started at the young age of 19 working for Multimedia Cablevision (now Cox Communications). I said the heck with Corporate America and went to work with Marino Garci at Garci Advertising in 2004. I purchased Garci Advertising in 2014 and then HGA, Inc was born.
Married to my best friend Amy and we have two daughters, Taylor and Sydney and two playful shaggy dogs Ari Gold (Labradoodle) and Jax (Goldendoodle). My hobbies besides work, work, work are everything Jayhawk Basketball (Rock Chalk!) and traveling the U.S coaching my daughters basketball team! If I wasn’t in advertising I’d be coaching basketball and flipping houses.Email Drew
Heather Bailey | Agency Director
I’m a small town girl from Western Kansas and received my bachelors degree from Fort Hays State University. I have over 20 years of experience in advertising/marketing and joined Garci Advertising (HGA) in 2009. Over the years I’ve learned a lot of different responsibilities and get to wear many hats. I love that I have the opportunity to continue to learn new things and that no two days are alike.
When I’m not working I hang out with my amazing husband (Josh) and our awesome dogs. We love working on projects in and around the house, spending time with family and enjoy traveling. Our favorite is being a season ticket holder for the KC Chiefs…Go Chiefs!Email Heather
Julie Leis | Account Specialist
Born and raised in Wellington, Kansas, lived in Wichita for 10 years and now back to Wellington. I must be a small town girl at heart! I enjoyed time in Stillwater earning my degree from Oklahoma State University, go Pokes! I have sold television advertising in the Wichita market for the past twenty years, and know the market and how to reach target audiences for my clients. Working in a family owned business has helped me relate to the business owners I deal with every day.
I’m married to Doug and have two daughters and one son. I enjoy spending time with my family, working at my boutique, taking our lab on walks, watching OKC Thunder games, going to country music concerts and boating at Lake of the Ozarks.Email Julie
Megan Leis | Account Specialist
Born and raised in Wichita, KS. I graduated from Wichita State University in 2012 and earned my BA with a major in Marketing and a minor in Management. I’ve been working in digital and print media and management for over 7 years and specialized in fully understanding what my client’s goals and aspirations are for their business and apply them in my marketing solutions to fully capture their audiences across different media platforms that perform for the best ROI. I was raised with entrepreneurs and that has truly shown me how to work hard, be honest and strategically think through processes.
I married my high school sweetheart, Jesse, and we welcomed our first son in 2019. Our fur babies are Phoebe and Lucy which are both very loud black and white Pomeranians. In our free time, we love riding around in our jeeps, doing spin class, dreaming of traveling and spending as much time as possible with family and friends.Email Megan
Amy Holmes | Numbers Queen
Over 10 years experience in the banking industry in compliance and management. After having baby number two and the oldest going into Kindergarten I started the most rewarding job of my life… A play/stay at home mommy. The hardest job I ever pursed in my life, but with more benefits than you can imagine.
I love to workout, travel, drink wine, lay by the pool, and have as much fun with my kids as possible. They are extremely busy with activities and I’m a full time fan, so I don’t miss very many games. If it weren’t for crunching numbers and keeping everything going around HGA, I would be a beach bum enjoying the outdoors and working on my tan.Email Amy
Jillian Wendling | Designer
I am a Wichita native, born and raised in the area. I attended Wichita State University where I received a BFA in Graphic Design with a Minor in Marketing. After graduating, I entered my new career field and spent the next few years gaining experience and designing primarily for clients in the marine and boat manufacturing industry. In August of 2016 an open position at HGA for a graphic designer caught my attention. I felt like it would be a great fit for me and the next step in my career – and it was!
When I’m not at work, I like to spend time with family and friends, stay active, travel as much as I can, and try new things and explore new places!Email Jillian
