Leneil Roderique

Senior Creative
VICE Media Group
Leneil Roderique crafts stories that help brands make an impact in the world. As a senior creative at VICE Media Group, Leneil’s work sits at the intersection of human-centered storytelling and audience insights, to ultimately create powerful narratives for brands in the form of documentary-style films, editorial articles, photo diaries, and experiential events to name a few. He believes the symbiotic relationship between the teller and the listener has the ability to cultivate human connections, shift behaviors, and transform life as we know it. That’s why he values telling overlooked, diverse stories: to provide a platform for (people of) overlooked identities to be heard, acknowledged and revered. To achieve the most truthful and thoughtful versions of these stories, he fights daily to have them crafted by people of overlooked identities. These values have manifested for Leneil in the form of advertising campaigns for brands like State Farm, Adidas, Levis, Mailchimp, U.S Census, etc.

Leneil Roderique attains a certificate in corporate finance from NYU and B.A in American Studies from Wesleyan University, where he grew to value social impact and creativity. To continue to nurture his creativity outside of work, he spends time pursuing film photography.

Ron Huey

How does a boy from Winder, Georgia make his way to Atlanta?
Ironically, by way of Los Angeles and Richmond. On the West coast, Ron’s creative work helped establish Lexus as the #1 automobile brand in America and put Ron’s career in overdrive. His work soon caught the eye of The Martin Agency in Richmond. In their hands, they held the creative reins to
the Mercedes-Benz account. Ron’s conclusion: Time to trade in the Lexus. Ron’s work for Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Wrangler Jeans, NAPA and others has been awarded by The One Show, Communication Arts, CLIO as well as twice being named a Stephen E. Kelly finalist – recognizing the Top 25 Magazine
Campaigns of each year.

In 1997, Ron witnessed the birth of his own agency, Huey/Paprocki, and two weeks later the birth of his twins. How’s that for pressure? In 2001, Creativity Magazine named Huey/Paprocki one of their “Top 20 Agencies to Watch.”
The agency piled up over 300 awards, establishing themselves as one of the Southeast’s premier creative agencies.

In 2010, Ron merged his company with CSE where he served for five years as SVP, Executive Creative Director working on accounts including Coca-Cola, AGCO, Atlanta Hawks, Aflac and AT&T before establishing his creative consultancy, Huey+Partners in 2016.

Ron currently serves on the University of Georgia Grady School of Journalism Board of Trust and The Atlanta Ad Club board. He has also served on The Creative Circus National Advisory Board as well as authoring articles for Communication Arts, Creativity and Adweek.
