MEET SOME OF THE GANG

The most impressive ship is only as effective as its crew. At Circa, we hire people that ensure smooth sailing.

STEVE KIRTON PRESIDENT
A born communicator, Steve earned his insights through many years of hard work in the industry, beginning with hands-on bench work as a clinical microbiologist. During an 11-year tenure with an international medical diagnostics company based in the UK, Steve rose from Sales Representative to Director of International Sales and Marketing. He then moved to the US and held a role as Business Unit Manager for Centocor, a leading biopharmaceutical company. His corporate experience was followed by several years as an ad agency executive, not only at his own company, but also at New York-based Euro RSCG Life. Steve provides marketing knowledge and business wisdom distilled from over 25 years of healthcare experience.

STEVE KRESHOVER ACCOUNT SERVICES DIRECTOR
Steve brings extensive pharmaceutical marketing experience to his Account team management role at Circa. A true communications professional, he has held senior leadership positions in large agency networks including Publicis and Havas, as well as a highly productive career at Merck & Co. His human health experience encompasses domestic and global product assignments in cardiovascular, oncology, hospital products, and vaccines. He has led countless annual planning processes, large scale IT integrations, and internal training seminars on a variety of topics. Steve holds Six Sigma certification in strategic communications planning: a skill that positively benefits our clients, staff and external partners.

MEGAN KILE CHIEF IDEATION OFFICER
Megan Kile is a multi–award-winning creative director and strategic thinker. With plenty of gumption, her brain, and a BFA in Communication Design from Kutztown, Megan has put together a decades-spanning career at agencies such as Saatchi & Saatchi, Euro RSCG Life, 30 West/Wyeth, and others. Over that time, Megan has worked in pharmaceutical, healthcare, consumer, and industrial advertising. With her last 10 years of experience being mostly in animal health, including numerous product launches, Megan can now say that her love of animals has finally come full circle. Something of a Francophile, she brings a bit of Parisian flair to her work at Circa.

JULES BENSON, BVSc MRCVS MEDICAL DIRECTOR
Dr Benson is our medical mind. A graduate of the University of Liverpool's School of Veterinary Science, he brings 7 years of clinical veterinary practice, plus nearly 8 years of experience as Chief Veterinary Medical Officer for Petplan Pet Insurance—North America, where his strategic input, industry insight, and business intelligence team supported explosive brand and company growth. As part of his diverse responsibilities, Dr Benson was regularly consulted as an animal health industry expert by print, web, and broadcast media outlets, including ABC, FOX, NBC, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times. He's a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and serves on the Board of Trustees for the Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association (PVMA). The addition of Dr Benson provides our clients with clinic-level perspectives and scientific insight, as well as experienced medical oversight for the development of marketing materials and programs.

JOHN HOLT TECHNICAL LEAD
More than just your typical, average digital interactive multimedia expert and guitarist, John Holt’s background ranges into such varied areas as digital development, bartending, multi-platform integration, and the International Honors Society. John’s history in the ad game includes work for IntelliMedia and Euro RSCG Life. As an asset to Circa’s digital services, John feels right at home researching, configuring, and applying cutting-edge approaches to any media platform.
