When it comes to results,
relationships matter

We build a lot of things. Strategies. Brands. Campaigns. Futures. But our ultimate goal is to build something bigger, deeper and more long-term than any transaction or click-through. We work extra hard to build meaningful, lasting relationships - the kind where everyone wins. Let’s make things better together.

Leadership

Mike O'Grady

CEO, Partner

As the son of a career Army officer, I grew up moving many times. I’ve been to every state except Alaska and attended three different high schools. For the last 25 years, I’ve lived in the northern Virginia area. The place I now call home.

The one activity that has been a constant for me besides family, school, and sports was an interest in being an entrepreneur. As a kid, you saw me either with a basketball, soccer ball, baseball, lawn mower, rake, or snow shovel. I was that kid knocking on doors asking if a neighbor needed help with their chores. This curiosity and desire to figure out the business puzzle are the foundation of my business life today, at StellaPop.

I am the Founding Partner & CEO of StellaPop. Focused on creative business solutions and results oriented growth for the last 20+ years. StellaPop has a collaborative, innovative, community approach and culture. We drive growth, develop processes, and connect brand message. Our team comes to work every day because we want to solve and manage the biggest challenges for our clients because we're - better together.

Angie O'Grady

COO, Partner

For those that know me, I am a morning person through and through. As soon as my feet hit the floor in the morning, I am focused on how I can assist CEOs so we can improve their people, operations, brand, and bottom line. There’s nothing more fulfilling than freeing up those CEOs, who are dipping down in the day-to-day, so they have time to focus on the overall growth strategy that will drive the success of their company long term.

I am accomplished in leading and growing multi-location, nationwide companies through to profitable business ventures. My long tenure and leadership within high growth companies makes me an indispensable asset to organizations in need of leadership in the areas of operational excellence, streamlined efficiencies and processes, improved employee programs, and increased margins and profitability.

As COO, I’ve grown companies by more than 50% via organic and M&A growth. I excel in implementing sales strategies, improved processes, team member engagement, and marketing positioning to ensure profitability on all services and products. I have led and participated on efficient and high-impact executive teams, in addition to developing successful C-level client relationships at client companies. I spent almost 15 years as the President and Chief Operations Officer for Carr Workplaces and prior had 14 years of experience at a HQ Global Workplaces, now known as Regus.

In January 2015, I made the decision to join my husband, Mike as partner at StellaPop in business by providing the management consulting branch. When I’m not moving and grooving in business, you can find me lacing up my sneakers and hitting the running path or spending time with Mike at our son’s sporting events.

Brian Wilson

Creative Director

I’m type-lovin’, tuba-playin’ protagonist of fundamental design principles. From the beginning of my career, where print media still ruled the content war to digital user experience trends that change weekly, I’ve been in the thick of it all and have helped elevate organizations’ identities through the power of good design for the past 14 years.

After graduating from James Madison University (Go Dukes!) with a BFA in graphic design I dove head first into my career as assistant art director of AARP The Magazine. In my spare time, I felt a calling and obligation to assist small to medium-sized companies evaluate and redesign their brands on the cusp of this digital age and I launched my personal design consultancy before moving across the country to Prescott, Arizona to manage a family-owned plastic bottle manufacturing plant.

After the birth of my first daughter, I decided it was time to return to my roots. Back on the east coast I served in many managerial positions in the design industry. I was Deputy Art Director for Hanley Wood Media and later shifted to creative agency life at Hirshorn Zuckerman Design Group before joining the powerhouse StellaPop team in 2015. Today, I get the best of both worlds designing for companies that are in their infancy to mega-million dollar businesses who are looking to give their established brand a refresh. Having this spectrum of work enables me to look at each client and each branding project through different lenses, further immersing myself in my craft with each client.

Christy Cooper

VP OF TECHNOLOGY, WORKPLACE SERVICES

I’m all about building. Building systems. Building relationships with my clients. Building spaces. Building bridges to close the gap between business objectives and the technologies and processes to achieve them.

As a native of Northern Virginia, I have spent the last 20+ years in the commercial real estate industry fulfilling the needs of small to mid-sized businesses through my unique set of skills. In the late 1980’s, I began my real estate career owning and operating a real estate brokerage. Tempted by business associates in the telecommunications industry, I took my negotiation skills and represented telecommunications companies in securing access rights in commercial office buildings nationally. In 2004, I joined Carr Workplaces where my technology and real estate background converged as VP of Information Technology. I was instrumental in building the company to 35 executive business suites across the country that included the oversight of the construction process and the implementation of the various IT technology platforms.

I’m a techie at heart and love to help clients streamline their technology by developing model IT and communication services and support. I have taken my experience in telecommunications and commercial real estate to develop a robust product to support small businesses from lease signing to conducting business through a combination of technical, operational, construction, and project management experience.

In addition to my techie side, I have been known to rock a hard hat well on-site at our Workplace Services client sites.

Kim Sinkovic

VP OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

I’m a D.C. native who is all about connecting with others. It’s safe to say that I know the ins and outs (and secret passage ways) in every type of commercial building you can think of from Class A to industrial. Over 20 years ago I fell into property management working in the operations department at Tysons Corner Center. I quickly learned that though I like to shop, mall management was not for me. I then found a long term home at JLL in 2000 in the property management department, where I grew from administration level to senior leadership.

While at JLL, I saw an opportunity to manage the Kettler Capital Iceplex — where the Washington Capitals practice — we traditionally weren’t in the space of arena management, but I went after it, presented to the owner of the team and won the account. This opportunity fostered my business development expertise and mindset. I saw a void in the market place in arena management, seized the opportunity, and it is now an operating business unit at JLL as Venue Engineering.

In my role at StellaPop, I’ve been able to leverage my experience implementing and managing client relationships as well as my expertise in initiating competitive bidding and procurement procedures to assist in growing StellaPop’s business on both sides of the house.

When not out networking like a ninja or meeting you for coffee, I’m hanging out with my two daughters, rooting on D.C. sports teams, or cozied up with a good book.

Gayle Greene

SOCIAL MEDIA & MARKETING MANAGER

When businesses say, “We have an Instagram account, who are we going to get to run it?” I’m the answer. The online world has been a big part of my professional life ever since I worked at AOL, back when people didn’t know the monster that the internet was. I’ve been genuinely involved in social for many years, working with well-known companies and brands.

Making sure that your business remains in the conversation is a big piece of my job. I’m the person who speaks for your company and your digital reputation is important to me. Part of my gig is to write clear, concise content that demands attention, creates loyalty, increases ROI, and compels action. And let’s not forget driving revenue - if isn’t bringing money (and customers) to your business, I don’t do it. I am a data and statistics geek, so I am all about the numbers.

As a New England native, I tell it like it is. I’m curious and constantly ask how and why things work. In my spare time I play mandolin and guitar. You might also recognize me from the bleachers at Caps games rocking the red.

Rachel Thomas

DESIGN COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER

Dubbed an “ideas girl” when I was little, I have always loved coming up with new ideas and interesting concepts. As I grew older I developed a passion for strategy and design, and now find myself at the intersection of those two. I recently graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in Communications and Public Relations. I also spent a summer studying graphic design at Parsons The New School in NYC.

Outside of work, I enjoy traveling around the world and experiencing new things. If I haven’t been there or done it, it’s on my list. If I’m not somewhere exploring, you can probably find me looking at videos of dogs, eating spaghetti, or decorating for a holiday or event.

Alex Mansfield

WEB DEVELOPER

I've enjoyed building things ever since I was a kid. When I wasn't busy playing ball, I was building things. In the summer, that meant forts and tunnels and in the winter, Lego cars and houses. I've always been a perfectionist about the things I build. I would tear a Lego creation apart and start over just to make sure the lines between blocks were perfect. I've carried that love of building and care for details into my career building things for the web. I've been building solutions for digital problems since the dial-up days. When not building things online, I like to stay active playing sports and traveling the world.
