TWINSBURG — GO2 Partners has named M. Brandon Melgaard as managing partner of GO2, at the company’s Twinsburg office. 

Melgaard, whose term will begin Jan. 1, 2018, replaces Pete Rubin, who led the creative agency since its inception in 1999.

GO2, a division of GO2 Partners, recently refocused its direction to emphasize its specialty: employee engagement and sales force effectiveness.

"I am honored to have been chosen as GO2’s new managing partner," Melgaard said. "This company has supported my professional growth for more than a decade, providing me with unmatched career opportunities and an incredible base of knowledge. I am both excited and humbled to be given the chance to guide this agency into its next chapter."

Melgaard has been with GO2 for more than 14 years. He graduated from Bowling Green State University in 2001 and quickly began his career as a graphic designer. Melgaard then shifted his attention to growing the interactive capabilities at GO2, and was later named creative director. His multifaceted background set him on a path toward leadership, rising through the ranks to associate partner, and now on to managing partner.

Rubin said he looks forward to Melgaard’s contributions to the agency. 

"I cannot think of anyone who is more committed to this company and its long-term success," Rubin said. "Brandon has demonstrated his value as a leader many times over. I know he will successfully juggle the demands of this position, while upholding our deep-seated core beliefs."
