Meet the Team

BRADLEY HUSTED

The Boss
Owner of Phoenix3 Marketing and twenty plus year design and marketing veteran, Brad Husted, started his journey into marketing in the heartland of the country, moving across the southeast, and finally landing in the Tampa Bay area to go back to school and balance his business education with his passion for art and design at the University of Tampa. After a number of years in corporate marketing, he decided to make the leap and go out on his own; he developed a marketing firm that offers resources to small and mid-sized businesses that are obtainable and practical. Over the years, Brad and his team have crafted strategic and tactical marketing for brands across multiple industries in B2B and B2C companies throughout the United States. Since 2008, the company has evolved and changed a great deal, but the mission has remained the same: “Building brands that move people, support a positive customer experience, and contribute to growth.”

We sat down with our fearless leader to gain some insight into what his life looks like when he is not working diligently at his computer or with clients:

If you could go back to any time in history, where would you go?

The 1950’s or 60’s because this era epitomizes where we inherited a lot of our current day ideals and obviously where the marketing and advertising field blew up. I’ve always viewed this era as being when the concept of the ‘American Dream’ was born and where we set the financial, social, and moral baseline of what it means to be a ‘successful American’. Spending over half my life in marketing, selfishly I’d want to go back to this time and see how much is reality and how much is a dreamlife we were sold on reruns of Nick at Nite shows.

What did you want to be when you were small?

I always wanted to be an entrepreneur. As early as I can remember I was creating imaginary businesses, whether it was building them out of Legos or later creating them in my backyard. I believe being an only child made me imaginative.

What’s your favorite movie?

At the risk of sounding cheesy, Under the Tuscan Sun. It has a lot of relatable moments and I love the lesson of how focused she is on this vision of what she thinks her life is supposed to look like, not realizing that it was actually happening all along.

And a quote that I reference probably more than I should: “You know when you meet one of those empty-shell people and you think, ‘What the hell happened to you?’ Well, there came a time in each one of those lives where they were standing at a crossroads. Some place where they had to decide to turn left or right. This is no time to be a chicken shit, Francis.”

If you could visit anywhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go?

I would go to Italy; it’s next up on my international travel list. As an art major I studied a lot of art history, so I’ve always wanted to see the art, sculptures, and architecture I’ve seen in books or film.

What are you currently watching on Netflix?

The new series “YOU”, and you should too, especially if you have kids addicted to social media.

SHANNON L. CZWALGA

The Magician
Shannon was formerly the Assistant to the CEO of a local prominent dry-cleaning business during which she did all the hiring for 40 locations and the production plant, was responsible for 3 stores directly, oversaw community involvement for the company and employees, and worked very closely with their marketing company. Once her career came to an end there, discussions started with Phoenix3 concerning her moving from a client to a Client Manager with P3. Shannon is excited to be working with clients in a new way and loves her work at P3!

We talked with Shannon about some of her interests outside of work and received responses that are as bright, amusing, and vibrant as the lady herself!

What did you want to be when you were small?

I was convinced I was going to be an artist and had tons of art supplies, but eventually I had to admit that drawing, painting, sketching was something I was NOT good at. I am crafty and creative but will not be doodling the next Mona Lisa anytime soon.

Where’s your favorite place in the world?


My favorite place in the world is not a place at all; it’s anywhere my family is. I grew up very close and attached to a large family and now my family consists of 2 cats, 2 dogs, and my husband. I am happy anywhere we are, as long as we’re together!

If you were a crayon, what color would you be and why?

The color orange. I love this color, it is bright, bold, loud, energetic, and vibrant. I like to believe I am just like that color.

What is your favorite family tradition?

Every year on New Year’s Eve, we put coins on the window ledges to welcome good fortune in for the New Year, then we burn Burberry candles down completely as a welcome of new and good things and dine on pierogis that have dimes in a few of them (finding a dime gives you good luck going into the New Year).

What’s your favorite movie?

A Bronx Tale because the message is something I agree with 100%. The whole movie revolves around the idea that the “saddest thing in the world is wasted talent” and I have never understood when people settle or take a comfy seat.

NIKI KANABY

Super Admin
Niki’s career started in the Social Work field; she got a Master’s degree and worked in that field for 14 years. Deciding she wanted something more, something challenging and positive. A place where she could feel she was accomplishing something real. She was presented with the opportunity to work for Phoenix3 a few years ago as a contractor, proofing and editing client projects; she found she was quite good at it and really enjoyed it! She jumped at the chance to come in to the office as a Marketing Assistant/Super Admin! and do even more to help advance the company, while learning a great amount of new skills. Niki feels lucky every day that she works with such a creative group of people!

We asked Niki to share a bit about her non-work life and answer some fun questions:

If you came back in your next life as an animal, what animal would you be?

A dolphin, so I could swim around a quiet, beautiful, mysterious place largely untouched by humans. Or a cat, so I could sleep and play all day!

What makes you laugh the most?


People falling or running into things. It’s ridiculous.

What did you want to be when you were small?

I wanted to be many things. Some that I remember are a writer, dancer, archeologist, and marine biologist.

Where’s your favorite place in the world?

Wherever my husband is, he’s absolutely my favorite person. He makes me laugh harder than anyone!

What is your favorite family tradition?


Making appetizers on Christmas Eve and watching The Grinch on Christmas night.

A time when we don’t have the Internet.

If it’s only to entertain myself or just a quick laugh, any random, funny meme on Facebook will do. But my friends really know how to make me laugh!
