Zach Drennan

Senior Creative Strategist

Zach’s interest in public relations and communication grew out of a lifelong interest in multiple creative pursuits. His design skills, love of reading and passion for finding different ways to tell stories led him toward branding and communication before knowing much about either.

“I’ve always been fascinated with how written and visual communication permeate every facet of our daily lives and how the smallest intricacies can make a huge difference in how things are perceived.”

Zach Drennan grew up in Wagram, N.C. and is a 2014 graduate of Scotland High School.

Zach specializes in brand strategy and digital media production, including digital and social advertising and content creation, graphic design, web video production and web design. He is a Meta Certified Creative Strategy Professional. Zach’s work has been recognized by the Hermes Creative Awards, dotComm Awards and MarCom Awards.
