Our Team

Art Knapp

“When people think about Business Development, they think, are we going to be the next IPO or the next acquisition by a major player in their space…They aren’t focusing on the things they need to be known for, what makes them better. I tell our team that we need to have the belief in ourselves and the determination to be better than the rest and to pass that belief on to our partners.”

David Hayes – Creative & Branding Director

David brings over a decade of experience in multiple disciplines to BTG. He discovered his love for design while working in the sign industry after graduating college with a degree in Criminology. From there he gained experience in logo, package, and web design; and ultimately was in charge of branding, marketing and communications on a corporate level. David has also led teams through the rebranding efforts of companies going through mergers, sales and acquisitions. 

As the Creative & Branding Director at BTG he plays an active roll in every account. His passion is logo and package design, but he loves to play a roll in everything from website navigation, to communications, to social media. While he enjoys being involved in everything, one of the things David does best is step back and let people do what they do. His goal is to never get in the way of progress.
