Thriving as a full-service media agency, Apollo is uniquely positioned across the digital and IRL space through advertising, sports partnerships, and product development.

When we started Apollo, [Dave] understood our strengths, believed in us early on and gave us small assignments. We had a principle of over-delivering on anything we were tasked with. And he continued to invest in us and has given us great opportunities. There are a number of people who took on that same role as Dave in believing in Apollo early, but he was one of the most notable and someone we’d like to say hi to and also say thank you.Eric Perko
