(Mok- see): a slang term for daring, bold, fearless.
Moxy isn’t your typical staffing or creative firm. In fact, we are neither one nor the other, we are both. Our Creative Agency designs, brands, builds and showcases talent and companies in an innovative way. Our Talent Agency recruits and places passive talent with start-ups, Fortune 500 companies and anything in between. We take a fearless approach to staffing and a bold approach to creativity. We just do things differently! You dig?
Moxy has an attention-grabbing brand…our walls are painted orange and purple, we have a 70’s inspired mascot, and pretty much all our slogans use an excess of suggestion and innuendos…So, it’s no surprise that Moxy garnered the attention of Brandy and Kelly back in 2012. Having met each other for the first time on their first day, Brandy and Kelly developed a crush on the brand and solidified a sisterhood (a bond which the bank has informed us will last a minimum of 10 years)!
Both purchased ownership in 2013 and quickly realized the challenges in front of them. With an initial leadership team of four, Moxy had No Vision, No Unity and No Money. They struggled, as many small businesses do. When the conversation turned how to fix the issues, scary terms were thrown around, think: close doors…sell…buy-out. With several options on the table, Brandy and Kelly decided to stop “making do” and start Making Change Be. After all, that is Moxy’s creed.
Determined to fulfill the potential of Moxy, the two #girlbosses fought for funding and gathered the necessary support to take Moxy to the next level….and they did it all in 4-inch heels. After buying out the company from the prior partners, Moxy became a woman-owned business and the naysayers took notice. As the new owners of Moxy, Brandy and Kelly are moving forward with their vision for the company: showcase local talent in an innovative and creative way, build creative assets for companies that add value to their business, and represent the Birmingham community with pride.

Few things are more toxic to your brand than becoming an eyesore. Think about your morning commute to work—at some point during the drive, you probably stopped next to another car at a red light. Try to remember what make and model that car was, or even just the color. There’s a very good chance […]Read More
Five Ways to Give a Little, and Get a Lot Times have changed. Once there was a time when you personally knew your banker, or pharmacist, or especially your kids principal. Now in 2016, exchanges are rarely personal and most often digital. It’s very likely you don’t know the name of the person who bags […]Read More
I see about a bajillion emails, resumes and correspondences a day. I cannot stress enough to you (the job seeker OR the employer) the importance of integrity and consistency in the content of those types of correspondences. Granted, we’re all human and make mistakes. I, for example, once (or twice, or three times) called a […]Read More
