Eli Singer

Founder and President

Eli Singer's involvement in blogging at the cusp of this new medium landed him in Marketing Magazine's Ones to Watch 2006. Today, Eli offers distinctive thought leadership in the world of social media.

His membership in the iMedia25 Class of 2011 Internet Marketing Leaders and Innovators recognizes Eli as a key influencer in interactive marketing who not only excels in his own business role but executes on innovative ideas, shares them with peers and consumers, and pushes this vital field to new levels of success and significance.

Before launching Entrinsic, Eli worked at Segal Communications, the exclusive Canadian representatives for Facebook, with the specific mandate of developing sustainable brand communities for TD Bank and Playstation inside the social network. Prior to that Eli was at Cundari, where in 2006 he pioneered Social POV — one of Canada's first social media practice areas in a fully integrated advertising agency.

In 2008 Eli was published in the Harvard Business Review, writing about how social media can create a culture of collaboration, transforming civic institutions and reinvigorating their relationships with stakeholders. He created Casecamp, Canada's social media unconference.

Eli holds an honours degree from The Richard Ivey School of Business.

Kelly O'Mara

Content Manager

Kelly's career has been full of unconventional paths. It begins with a Master's degree in History from Wilfrid Laurier University, where Kelly focused on the social impact of the two World Wars. She soon merged this into a career in corporate research on Toronto's Bay Street. Not content with cubicle life, Kelly shifted gears, worked as a florist, and eventually opened her own shop.

While working with flowers, Kelly fell in love with marketing andthe social buzz she could build around her brand. To bolster this hands-on experience, she completed a Certificate in Strategic Marketing at Ryerson University and has now been in the marketing business for three years.

When she's not creating kick ass content with the team at Entrinsic and working with some of the best clients in the country, Kelly can be found hanging out at the dog park or baking her award-winning cookies.

Meghan comes to Entrinsic after working as a lifestyle editor and journalist, writing for such publications as the National Post, the Grid and BunchFamily.ca.

Meghan studied journalism at Centennial College and also holds a BA in Classics from Dalhousie University. She plans to use her Ancient History and Literature knowledge to win a game of Jeopardy!-some day.

Anna Diemert

Anna likes to live everyday like the teachers who told her she couldn't make a living Tweeting are watching.

Anna's background is best described as "eclectic." Before her social media days, Anna wasan award-winning theatre and film technician who specialized in lighting and costuming. After deciding to leave the theatre world behind, Anna began writing for Torstar Digital and managed social media accounts for several start-ups.

Anna is exceptionally excited to bring her unique voice and passion for all things social media to the Entrinsic team.

Kyle Carpenter

Copywriter

If big ideas came up with themselves, you wouldn’t need a guy like Kyle.

A journalist-turned-copywriter, Kyle has had a busy two and a half years in the industry. Starting with the wildly popular script "Future Hipsters," Kyle now has dozens of web videos and commercials to his name, including work for Google, RBC, Days Inn and Sobeys.

Born into a music industry family, Kyle started his career as a freelance entertainment writer for DailyXY and CHARTattack. During his collegiate years at McGill University, he served as an editor at The McGill Tribune and completed editorial internships at Exclaim! Magazine and DRIVEN Magazine in Toronto.

Outside of the office, Kyle plays drums in the odd band, sees as many standup comedy shows as possible, and manages fantasy sports teams with the passion of a Bears-era Mike Ditka.

Sheng Sinn

Group Account Director

Sheng is equally thrilled stumbling upon the latest nonsensical meme as he is digging through a 1000 pages of research on retail packaged goods price elasticity. The right and left side of his brain are perpetually locked in battle, and a winner has yet to be declared

Sheng has spent over a decade in the industry, working with, creating, and leading integrated teams at top agencies including DDB, BBDO and Leo Burnett on some of the world's most influential brands like Pepsi, Tropicana, Gatorade, Mercedes-Benz, Michelin, Clorox, Labatt, Anheuser-Busch, Sony, Sears and TD.

When Sheng's not helping to build brands, he's geeking out searching for the next thing in fringe cinema, figuring out what to do with his nearly 500 DVDs in an age of streaming and creating complex metadata-based automated playlists for his ever expanding music collection.

Katie Lynn

Account Director

Katie's career has been driven by passion. That’s how she's been able to foster solid client relationships, exceed business objectives, and constantly push the boundaries of what's possible.

Danielle Bachand

Finance Manager

Danielle has always had an incredible ability to organize. As a child, Danielle's teachers would tell her parents about her attempts to take over the classroom because she was convinced she could do it better. So when it came to choosing a career path, it only made sense that Danielle would gravitate to the world of Human Resources. However, after a degree from York University, and a few years working in the field, Danielle decided HR wasn't her cup of tea.

After much soul searching (and a realization that she couldn't make a career out of her other two passions, dogs and shoes) she let her love of numbers shine through, enrolling in the CGA program. Now a part-time student and full-time bookkeeper and accountant, Danielle can be found putting her meticulous organization and planning skills to work at Entrinsic.
