Nice to Meet You: Colton Mulligan

Sep. 2015

Role at FoxFuel: Partner and Chief Executive Officer

Colton’s one of those guys who talks a lot and gets distracted by shiny things. He’s also attempted to speak on the importance of booze in the workplace on several occasions but has yet to find a group that welcomes the topic.


What's your favorite... 




Aristotle, mainly because he geeked out over astronomy, which I find relatable.



Bluetooth device?

My Bose SLIII Portable Speaker.



Happy place in Nashville?

The basement Movie Room/Man Den at my house. Or Waffle House on Sidco.



Recent ad campaign?

I'm still a sucker for the Arby's non-apologetic "We have the meats" campaign.



Pirate catchphrase?

"But I don't wanna be a pirate." —Jerry Seinfeld



Household appliance?

I don't cook enough to have a favorite.



All About Colton

What's the most frustrating comment, question, or feedback you get from clients?
"Shouldn't you see a doctor about that?"


What is the first thing you did after college graduation?
I went backpacking through Europe with a hyper-intelligent professor/friend, who immediately made me feel like I learned nothing in college.


If you were permanently exiled from the advertising world, what would you do instead?
I lack the connections or significant experience, but I would love to work in film as a producer.


What's a current trend in advertising that makes you hurt inside?
The preference for off-the-shelf Content Management Systems.


How did you take it when you found out Santa isn't real?
Apparently, it was traumatic enough that I blocked that moment from memory.


What best gets your creative juices flowing?
Black tea until my hands just barely start to shake and a roomful of folks for creative/strategic/brainstorming session. That or a touch of hypomania.


How do you find inspiration?
Wes Anderson Movies, Rube Goldberg Machines, Google Product Commercials, Kid President, and WIRED Articles.


Would you rather be attacked by 50 duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck?
One horse-sized duck.  If I championed the bout, that makes for a way better story.
