As with most teams and families, there’s something we all share at RedShift. In our case, it’s coming from agencies or businesses where we thought, “There’s gotta be a better way.” At RedShift, we’ve come together to form that “better way.” Each of the differentiating factors you see about RedShift — being data-driven, customer-centric, transparent, ego-free and dedicated to results — these are qualities we didn’t find at previous homes, but that we’ve established and follow at RedShift.
Another thing we all have in common at RedShift Digital Marketing is that we’re all different. We’re a proudly odd melange of different styles, different outlooks, different voices, different approaches — and being that different makes a big difference in who we are and the unique and varied ways we can serve our clients. We’ve been told, “You’re kind of an unusual mix, but wow does it work.”
Jeff Lizik is the President and CEO of RedShift Digital Marketing. A digital and creative powerhouse, serial entrepreneur and agency owner, Jeff has been marketing and hustling since the early 1990’s. After a few stints in corporate America and starting a few multi-million dollar businesses (and a few failures), Jeff acquired Z Brand Group in 2017 and grew it into an edgy and unique creative powerhouse — what we know as RedShift Digital Marketing today. Jeff is constantly keeping up-to-date with every nuance and new concept in the digital marketing space, but when he’s not, you can find him hanging out with his wife, their many cats and dogs and buying more ball caps and sneakers to add to his collection.
Abby Mundell is our Vice President at RedShift. Her 20+ years of widespread marketing and leadership experience began with a Philadelphia ad agency and have navigated through banking, healthcare, advancement and association management. Abby’s role with RedShift is multi-faceted, ranging from operations to agency strategy, human resources to goal setting, and all the fun stuff that goes with it. Her career has taken her across the country, from the East Coast to the islands of Hawaii, and a few stops in between for good measure. When not sequestered in her office surrounded by a multitude of dogs and cats, she can usually be found binging on old episodes of “Law & Order SVU” while deciding what walls to rip down next in her house.
Megan Dombek is our Digital Marketing Manager. With a decade of agency experience in Chicago and Pittsburgh, she is an agency lifer who started in Account Management before finally giving into her love for data. She has seen and worked on it all but has a soft spot for taking a deeper look at her client’s strategy and bringing it to life in the digital space. When she is not digging through data for her clients, you can find Megan chasing after her kids, hiking through the woods with her rescue pittie or trying to perfect her chocolate chip cookie recipe (always add more salt).
Gary Kramer is our Digital Marketing Specialist. Gary is a driven and experienced Digital Marketer with a passion for people and building value for the products and services they provide.

Outside of RedShift, he can be found writing scores that can be heard on Netflix, Nat Geo, TLC, & the Discovery Channel, shooting landscape/architectural photography, and riding the Duquesne Incline with his wife and daughter.

She has experience managing both traditional and digital campaigns for clients in the Non-Profit, Banking, Home Improvement, Restaurant and Healthcare industries.

Patrick McKinney is our Account Manager. Patrick is a passionate and creative problem solver who uses an analytical mindset to tackle client objectives. A Pittsburgh native and former Congressional staffer, his experience is rooted in project management, strategic engagement, and program development. Patrick’s drive and ambition have led him across the country, as both a competitive rower and philanthropy cyclist. Outside of work, Patrick can be found staying active, attempting to make the perfect cup of coffee, or cheering on Pittsburgh sports teams.

Prior to working with RedShift, Bradley spent time honing his design and branding skills at the 84 Lumber corporate office, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, A to Z Communications and Z Brand Group.

Noelle Snebold is our Graphic Designer. She works on visually communicating ideas through digital and print to help clients elevate their brand. Before working at RedShift, Noelle spent time growing her skills at Sierra Experts, Robert Morris University Athletic Department and with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Zac Galioto (aka Intern Zac) works primarily with our digital marketing and sales teams. He studied business marketing and communications at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. Outside of work you can find Intern Zac on the golf course or at the lake enjoying the sun. While he has a lot of responsibilities here at RedShift, getting coffee is rarely one of them.
