Elisa Rode – President

Elisa is a Fort Worth native and in keeping with that, studied at Texas Christian University where she earned her degree and purple wardrobe. She has been with Kearley & Company for over 25 years and in that time has enjoyed a Game of Thrones-esque ascent from copywriter to agency president. Her work has won several ADDY, CUNA Golden Mirror and Lone Star Awards. When she’s not leading Kearley to another creatively fulfilling year, Elisa can be found enjoying salsa from one of the South Side’s many fine dining establishments, spending time with her poet/professor husband, or hanging out with head office dog, Hank.
