Justin Schwanke

President & Founder

Justin received his bachelor’s degree from the University of St. Thomas, and continued his education at the University of Oregon, where he received his MBA in 1999.

Prior to SYNMP, Justin worked his way from an entry-level Promotions Manager to VP – Regional Managing Director at GM R*Works (now Jack Morton Worldwide). In his 10+ years at R*Works, he found his greatest asset was his ability to bridge and develop interagency relationships for the greater value of his clients and their campaigns. While considered a big-picture, strategic thinker, Justin drives a “get it done and get it done, right!” philosophy inside SYNMP.

Beyond work, Justin and his wife, Meg, are heavily involved in the day-to-day of their 2 children, Mirabel (12) and Bennett (10) – including coaching basketball and baseball and taking care of their dog, Ruby, which the kids promised they would take care of!! He has also served on his city’s Town Development Board, as well as his children’s School Board.
