Pete Lempert: Brand Management/Principal
If you ever find yourself on an ostrich farm with Pete, run the other way. That’s what Pete’s former bank client should have done, instead of agreeing to be in a photo shoot with a seven-foot-tall male ostrich. Despite Pete’s assurances that everything would be all right, the client walked away with the top third of his right index finger bitten clean off. Things have gone much smoother for Pete and his clients since that day.
After eight years at Temerlin McClain working on NationsBank, Southwestern Bell Mobile Systems, American Airlines, and Dial, Pete joined TRG in 1994. A former pilot, he managed to stay involved in flying through work on brands including Learjet, Hawker, and Beechcraft. He now handles QuikTrip, Behringer, and Orkin. He has not been invited to any of their photo shoots.
