leadership TEAM





Adam Stoker
President/CEO

Adam was born in Oklahoma and has lived in several states across the country including Utah, Alabama, North Carolina, Georgia and Alaska. (Luckily, he doesn't say "y'all" anymore.) Adam has been working in advertising since 2007. He graduated from Brigham Young University's prestigious advertising program. After excelling in school, Adam left the small agency where he was employed to take a chance on an internship at a larger agency in Farmington, Utah. There he was able to work on several important accounts including Ken Garff Automotive Group, Lagoon, Tai Pan Trading, Stephen's Hot Cocoa and many more.

Because of his opportunistic personality, Adam jumped at the offer to move to St. George and join Relic (then Sorenson) in 2011. He currently manages Baja Broadband, Brian Head Resort, Cedar City/Brian Head Tourism Bureau, Jack Fisher Homes, USA Communications, and Utah Shakespeare Festival. If you need help with your marketing plan or advertising campaign, Adam is the man to call.

Jordan Barker
Chief Digital Officer

Jordan has been in the digital advertising industry for close to ten years where he has built the digital revenue engines for some of Utah's most promising companies. His work has driven results for brands like Walgreens, Pfizer, Bayer, The University of Phoenix, Pluralsight, and Microsoft to name a few. He is an accomplished marketing expert, and recognized leader in customer acquisition and demand generation.

As Chief Digital Officer, Jordan is responsible for all aspects of digital marketing at Relic Agency including customer acquisition and demand generation, lifecycle marketing, testing and optimization, as well as reporting and analytics.

When Jordan isn't dissecting data, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two children. He enjoys playing tennis and basketball, although he admittedly isn't very good at either.

Colby Remund
Chief Creative Officer

If family, sports and good food were all rolled into one human mass and it drove a dented black Honda Accord, that mass would wear Colby's flip flops. He and his wife Crystal are the happy and tired parents of three strapping young boys and a beautiful daughter who would love nothing more than to reside in Disneyland.

Among these extra-curricular endeavors, Colby is the very definition of a sound, creative mind. He has been professionally employed in the industry since 2007, joining Relic Agency (then Sorenson Advertising) in June 2011, and is a graduate of Brigham Young University's prestigious advertising program and creative track where he was an award-winning art director.

He has been successful in developing creative strategy for numerous campaigns for a variety of clients including TDS, Dixie State University, Garfield County Tourism, Tuacahn Amphitheatre, Utah Valley Parade of Homes and Ruby's Inn.

Jessica Merrill
Media Director

Jessica joined Relic (then Sorenson Advertising) in February 2012 after graduating cum laude from Dixie State University with her BS in Communication. She comes from a long line of media professional - her family has been in the radio business for more than 70 years.

She currently leads the media department and manages all media planning and buying for Relic Agency's clients including, but not limited to, TDS Telecom, Garfield County Tourism Office, Uintah County Tourism Office, Tuacahn Center for the Arts, Utah Valley Homes Builders Association and Cedar City Tourism.

Working closely with account executives, Jessica ensures all media strategies are properly executed and media traffic is current for each client. She is also trained and proficient in Arbitron, a radio research database.

Jessica is passionate about working in the community and getting involved with all forms of media. She and her enthusiastic 12-year-old daughter enjoy skiing, baseball games, going to Universal Studios and watching movies. Jessica loves traveling the world, reading as much as possible, attending concerts and sometimes even playing the occasional round of golf. She believes books and shoes solve most problems!

Chelsea Oldroyd
Public Relations Manager

Chelsea grew up in Fairfax, Virginia on the outskirts of Washington, D.C. She moved to Utah to attend BYU where she graduated from the award-winning public relations program in December of 2014. While at school, she met her husband and was married in the spring of 2015.

While studying at BYU, Chelsea did a number of marketing and public relations internships gaining experience in writing, media relations, social media and event planning. But her all-time favorite internship was the cooking class she took while studying abroad in Italy for one semester.

Chelsea joined the Relic (then Sorenson Advertising) team in October of 2015. She loves writing, traveling and Italian food.
