We began our journey in 2008, helping businesses grow from one milestone to the next – point A to point B – or for us, peak one to peak two. The destination was clearly defined, the path well-traveled; today it’s not that simple. Reaching the next peak means growing more than just profits, it’s leading the way with actions that really matter to your employees, partners, and customers.

We’re all about that at Peaktwo.

Web Experiences Launched

Peaktwo was founded on values that remind us why we do the things we do, and inspire us to do them everyday.

Always be learning.

Every project provides a new opportunity to learn. Find it and learn the heck out of it.

Challenge the traditional.

The best solution is out there. Never be afraid to raise your hand and challenge anything that isn't.

Exceed expectations.

Our standards are high, and that's right where we like them.

Meet the Team

We are a savvy group of storytellers and creatives who love sipping coffee, playing with our dogs (and a few cats), hiking mountains, and skiing down them.

Mike Granetz

Founder & Creative Director

A self-proclaimed “strategic-creative” hybrid, Mike began his career in advertising & design before attending The George Washington University for his MBA in the late 90s. The resulting left-brain/right-brain skill set uniquely positioned him to help clients solve complex problems with truly visionary solutions.

He founded Peaktwo in 2008 to help companies reach new levels of success. Whether that was navigating an acquisition, rolling out a new product, or managing rapid growth. Today Mike defines success levels differently, as more clients aspire to grow their business through more purpose-driven narratives.

As the CEO and Creative Director at Peaktwo, Mike brings his detail-obsessed, laser-focused intensity to every client, every project — every time. He thinks on his feet and often with his hands (and a drawing tool). He’s usually the one pacing around the whiteboard, scratching out notes, and sketching ideas.

When he isn’t working with clients, you’ll find him spending time with his family and their two dogs. Those of you who really know him may strenuously disagree and place him on the golf course or the side of a mountain. A transplant from New Jersey, he still roots for the New York Yankees, and after 17 years in Washington DC, avoids rush-hour traffic as much as possible.

Charis Dickson

VP of Operations

Want something done? Just get Charis on it. Known as the Peaktwo pacemaker, Charis (it rhymes with Paris) keeps all the plates spinning and makes sure none of them crash. How does she do it? It’s all in her roll-up-your-sleeves attitude, her ability to juggle and shift with ease, and her refreshingly no-drama outlook.

From managing the financials, to making meaningful reports out of columns of data, to poring over the nitty-gritty details within each project, Charis happily cracks the whip and sweats the small stuff—all while managing to be one of the most easy-going people we know. (Maybe it’s the accent?) Before coming to Peaktwo, Charis worked for some of the world’s largest and most reputable marketing service and IT industry consultancies.

Born in Scotland, she graduated from the UK’s Coventry University with a degree in equine studies, giving her equal parts horse sense and business sense. When she’s not wrangling our projects, she’s keeping up with her soccer-loving son and daughter, ages 17 and 15, hiking with her husband and three dogs, and leading numerous church activities.

Bridgette Kyle

Client Account Manager

With a background in brand strategy, a degree in Integrated Marketing Communication, and a relentless curiosity to keep up with the latest trends in digital marketing and user behavior, Bridgette digs into our clients’ industry landscapes, audience expectations and business objectives to turn research insights into innovative digital opportunities. 

When she’s not heads down on her MacBook, you will probably find Bridgette testing new recipes in the kitchen [read: eating], belting showtunes, and watching scary movies with her husband and sons (two rescued kitties!).

Brandon Draper

Senior Developer

After 10+ years of professional web development experience, Brandon sees the world through black and green Matrix code-tinted glasses. Beginning out in the software industry then making an eventual 180 degrees transition into the advertising industry, Brandon can navigate his way around a data driven back-end as well as a highly stylized front-end project.

When Brandon isn’t combing through Stack Overflow, you can probably find him on the soccer field, trying out a new restaurant, or still sitting in front of the computer dreaming of becoming the next eSports superstar.

Emily Deering

Account Manager

Emily is our “Swiss Army knife”, adapting and integrating effortlessly through a forest of account and project scenarios. Her versatile nature is an essential tool as she leads clients along the creative journey. She’ll get you from Basecamp to summit as easily as she climbed Mount Katahdin at the end of the Appalachian Trail!

Born and raised in Maine, Emily loves the mountains. She also enjoys strolling through the small town where she lives with her rescue dog, Sadie. When she’s not outside, you may find her on the couch learning how to knit a hat, or with family at monthly game nights.
