About

Like a flywheel, our talented team also generates momentum. In this case, it's through creative print solutions that advance the mission and support the values of our clients.

Our History

Everyone has a story, and ours started in 1981 in a one-car garage with a vision of supporting the economic growth in Chattanooga. What began as a decal manufacturing company is now a full-service creative marketing agency, supporting the areas of digital marketing, print, promotional products, graphics and signs with a one-on-one approach.

Still family-owned and -operated today, our vision remains the same and our passion is relentless in our pursuit to guide the driven and courageous to greatness.

Director of Outside Sales
matthew@flywheelbrands.com

What is your favorite quote?

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt

What is your role at Flywheel?

Matthew loves a challenge and prefers to always be active, even if just toying with his Rubik's cube while brainstorming at his desk. His prior work as a Senior Leave Specialist for a large insurance company afforded him the valuable experience with corporate culture and logistics which he offers our tight-knit team.

Client Success Specialist
brooks@flywheelbrands.com

What is your favorite quote?

"Continuous effort—not strength or intelligence—is the key to unlocking our potential." - Winston Churchill

What is a guiding principle that you live by?

Being a first rate you, is better than being a second rate anyone else!

What organization or cause do you support?

The Carter Hope Recover Center, which serves recovering adults who are looking to get their life back on track. I help with annual fund-raising campaigns to keep the center programs affordable.

How do you spend your free time?

My favorite thing to do is to grab my pack and hike in the backcountry for 3-4 days at a time. When I have less spare time, I enjoy watching soccer and flying my drone around the Blue Ridge mountains.
