The Mindflint Way.

A proven process. A one-of-a-kind team. All about results.

Spark your strategy.

“Given who you are, how do you get from where you are to where you want to go?” Rather than a ready, fire, aim approach, we work hard to first uncover your unique story, your market realities, and your target audience in order to chart a clear path forward.

Spark your story.

Guided by this clarity, our diverse creative team crafts the right message, utilizing a broad spectrum of tools and platforms to get your most compelling story in front of the people who need to hear it.

Spark your success.

As your story grows, we help you stay on track by measuring results against plans, assessing performance in the light of this measurement, and making adjustments to effect continuous improvement.

Our leadership team.

Nate Schaub | Principal

After starting out as a writer and graphic designer in the non-profit world, Nate originally founded a company called Mindflint Media in 2004 to make top-shelf design and marketing services accessible to everyone with a great story to tell — not just big companies with big budgets. Over the last 15 years, Nate has helped organizations of all shapes and sizes, for profit and not, capture the essence of who they are, craft a compelling story, and connect with the people who need to hear it.

After a brief hiatus to pioneer a commercial real estate company in Pittsburgh in 2015, Nate re-launched Mindflint and today leads a diverse team of designers and marketing strategists located throughout the country, including offices in San Diego, Denver, and Pittsburgh.

Nate lives with his wife and two daughters in Beaufort, South Carolina.

Daniel Hoey | President

Dan started his first company, United Financial Technologies, Inc., in 1992 and sold it and a subsidiary company in 2004 after growing it into a multi-million dollar regional mortgage banking operation. He founded or co-founded three other successful companies between 1996 and 2005.

In the nonprofit sphere, he founded New Community Church in Wexford in 1998, serving as the chairman of the board of elders for the first ten years of the church’s existence. In addition, he served on a number of nonprofit boards, including the Mel Blount Youth Home and Imani Christian Academy, was involved in missions work in India and Africa, and was instrumental in creating a medical clinic in the Bangda-Ligbi region of Ghana.

In 2009, Dan became engulfed in a series of major personal challenges — for more on those challenges and Dan’s recovery from them, read his story here.  As co-founder and president of Mindflint, Dan brings all of his personal experiences that made him who he is today — successes, failures, and recovery — to spark your success.

His four children range in ages from 17 to 22, and he resides with his one remaining child at home in Sewickley, Pennsylvania.
