Ideate. Execute. Amplify. These are the tenets in which NYC-based influencer marketing and communications agency Team Epiphany is built upon. On a daily basis, the team executes innovative and effective strategies for Fortune 500 brands such as Timberland, Heineken, Hennessy, Moët & Chandon and Universal Music Group. Not only does their client roster speak for itself, but they have received acclaim from industry peers for their award winning work and remain a consistent presence on the Inc 500|5000.
Team Epiphany recently moved offices, to accommodate their ever-growing team of young talent. The office atmosphere is productive but comfortable. The team works in an open space so that everyone can easily communicate with each other. We recently got to stop by their office and sit down with a few team members to ask them what it is like to be a part of the team.
