Tommy Means - Founder
Tommy Means is the founder and executive creative director of Mekanism, a creative agency with offices in San Francisco, New York, Chicago and Seattle.
One day while meeting the new interns, Tommy stumbled upon an idea to address the ad industry’s continued struggle to hire and develop diverse creatives.
What if Mekanism hired more diverse interns? What if everyone hired more diverse interns? Then those interns will go on to have careers and they would hire more folks like themselves.
Seems pretty simple.
So in 2017 Tommy launched Apollo 51, a network of agencies dedicated to launching the careers of diverse interns.
