We are an agency that is alive with daily interchanges of ideas that fuel the integration of strategic thought processes with creative concepts. Our team here at fortytwoeightynine is driven toward developing messages that best represent your brand and produce optimal results for you.


You could say we’re a “personal-sized” marketing agency, with big capabilities to guide each brand we represent to its optimal destination.
Our mission is to deliver individualized attention and produce superior results. We use a team-based structure when it comes to serving the needs of our clients. Account strategy, creative, interactive, media, analytics and other disciplines all work collaboratively together. Our team of people, and the way each one of us thinks, is the difference. It’s really what sets us apart from other agencies.

The core team who keeps our brand strategies and executions in alignment:
> Rick Belinson | President & Brand Strategist
> Amanda Nyen | Account Strategist & Media Director
> Carol Merry | Senior Art Director
> Sheila McKay | Digital Marketing Analyst
> Kacey Kaderly | Web Developer & SEO/SEM
> Jennifer Hankins | Accounting & Office Manager

We come together every day because we love marketing, we take representing our clients’ brands seriously, and we are always imagining what could come next. We ask a lot of questions, because we want to hear (and learn from) what you say. Our best long-term partnerships have been based more on listening than just talking. But we will ask you “Why?”, to gain the insights required to understand your mission, as well as “Why Not?”, to challenge everyone involved to think differently and creatively about your situation.
