chris kapsalis
president
We exist to bring to life big ideas that build powerful, rational and emotional connections between our clients and their audiences. For an agency to consistently deliver this level of excellence, it needs great talent and talent must be nurtured by rewarding passion and excellence, while eliminating culture killers like drama and bureaucracy. I believe clients hire us because of how we think, but they keep us because of how we act.

I work to create an environment here at Legacy where our people are empowered to take risks and trust that we’ll be there to support them.
