Danette Knickmeier

account director
process manager

Danette has spent the last 15 years in the agency business. Prior to that, she spent 3 years on the client side as a marketing manager. She always knew she wanted to work for a creative agency—she loves being around creative people and is passionate about thoughtful and smart design.

She also has an analytical/planning side that help to keep her organized and on track while managing projects for her clients.

She has worked on many projects for many different clients, large and small, including Comcast, SunTrust Bank, U.S. Bank, GE Money, Northwestern Mutual, Stevie Ray’s, U of M, Best Buy, Great River Energy, 3M, Alerus Financial, Dunn Brothers Coffee, Minnesota Public Radio, BBC America and AmTrust Consumer Services.

This is her second stint at d.trio—she worked with us from 2006 through 2012. She left for a few years to get some exposure to other agencies. She then went out on her own as a contractor for a short time. Now she’s back helping us with some new clients and internal operations.

Outside of work: Danette is crazy about bicycles and can be found riding to work most days—and riding everywhere else most weekends. She’s also an active environmentalist, a yogi, a foodie, a gardener and a pretty darn good home cook.
