Dennis Hardy

President / CEO

When we landed the Chumash Casino account, Dennis had no idea he would soon be serving as client CMO as well as agency Management Supervisor, but that’s what happened for the first four years of our 13-year relationship. The result was a unique knowledge of how things work from both perspectives. Dennis has spoken on innovation and creativity multiple times at G2E, and published several articles in Casino Marketing Enterprise magazine.

Chief Creative Officer

Throughout his career KT has worked on everything from beer to athletic shoes, across all disciplines and has always believed that the best work is the kind that can have a direct impact on business. And while he has been recognized by every major award show including Cannes, The One Show, Communication Arts and The Webbys, KT knows the true measure of great work is results. He also has an exceptionally long middle finger, but does his best not to show it to too many people.

Lily Katz-Smolenske

SR VP / Media Director

Lily’s over 20 years of leadership positions in New York and Los Angeles prepared her to take on the unique challenges of casino marketing media. Creative solutions were needed to deliver the large numbers of guests necessary to fuel the resorts' various operations. But the property was relatively remote and the regional Southern California competition was experienced and well funded. Just another day at the office for Lily and the EHY Media Team.

Keith Butler

VP / Digital Strategist

Keith was a digital early-adopter, beginning with leadership positions at AOL, and later on helping introduce Fortune 100 companies like Office Depot to the art of e-commerce and digital marketing. Creating the robust, multi-functional, responsively designed website for Chumash Casino Resort was an interesting test for Keith and his team. At the time of its launch, the site was considered the most advanced gaming resort site in California.
