HEY, WE'RE HANDSHAKE. 🤝

A HUMAN-ORIENTED DIGITAL MARKETING AGENCY

LEADERSHIP

CHRIS | PARTNER

With more than twelve years of experience in website design and development, Chris’ focus recently shifted towards better implementing marketing and advertising strategies for Handshake’s clients. Previous experiences in corporate, small agency, and freelance environments gave him the knowledge to be able to balance his passion for problem-solving with his intuitive creativity.


When not hard at work, he spends his time working around his yard, cheering on Cleveland sports teams, and enjoying the company of his wife, three children, and their dog.

PAT ROUTA

In loving memory of Pat Routa. Agency co-founder, partner and creative visionary passed away unexpectedly in July of 2022. Pat helped drive this agency visually and strategically for over 10 years. This very website was one of the last things that he worked on before his passing.


A man of great passion for visual arts, Cleveland sports, his family and especially his dog Iggy. He will be greatly missed here at Handshake Digital and hope to be able to make him proud each and every day.

MALLORY | PROJECT MANAGER

Mallory is a New York native who has a love for keeping ducks in a row. She graduated from Marist College in 2009 with a degree in Business/Marketing. As the Account Executive at Handshake Digital, she interacts with clients on a daily basis while also managing internal workloads for the entire staff.


When she’s not working she’s enjoying time with her husband, three children, Goldendoodle, cooking, or going for long runs!

JULIA | MARKETING SPECIALIST

Julia, Handshake’s Junior Marketing Specialist, is a graduate of Elon University in North Carolina, where she earned a bachelor of arts in media analytics and a minor in information science. Yeah, you can say she likes data and the details.


Born and raised in Rocky River, Ohio, she’s another member of Handshake’s Northeast Ohio crew and is thrilled to dive right into all aspects of our work.

REBECCA | DESIGNER

Rebecca joined our team in May of 2020 as our digital designer. She helps create brand concepts, social media graphics, print material and so much more. Calling Waterbury, Connecticut home, she is one of many Handshake Digital team members that works for us from home. A 2019 graduate of Full Sail University where she graduated as Valedictorian, she’s officially the most studious person on our team!


When she’s not whipping up some kick ass designs, Rebecca is busy learning guitar, going to concerts (hopefully those start back sometime!) and loves watching movies with her two cats Boo and Luna.

JACOB | VIDEO EDITOR

Jacob is Handshake’s Pacific Northwest representative, providing his expertise in video production from the Seattle area.


His credits include television commercials for Ford, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz and two feature-length documentaries - one shot in Cuba and the other in Mexico. Jacob has also worked in the app development space, focusing on SDK-based marketing and creative work.


In his free time, Jacob loves hiking through the mountains, photography, and flying his drone.
