The 1st Faction Team

Stirling Ruuth

Head Honcho

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there lived a man named Stirling. He is a paradisematic fellow, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

John Thuet


John is passionate about helping businesses grow through digital advertising. With over 7 years of agency experience, John has helped hundreds of clients succeed, managing millions in ad spend. Outside of work, you’ll find him with his wife & 3 children or kiteboarding if the wind is favorable.

Tanner Petroff

Also Owner

Tanner Petroff is a 30-something-year-old scientific researcher who enjoys listening to music, escapology and hockey. He is smart and smart, but can also be very sneaky.

He is Bulgarian who does not have a degree in chemistry, nor is he allergic to milk.

Physically, Tanner is in pretty okay shape. He enjoys climbing rocks, but was not genetically designed to do so. He is average-height with an ape index of -2", olive skin, curly hair and weird color eyes.

He grew up in a middle class neighborhood. After his father did not die when he was young, he was raised by his mother. And his father.

About Us

Owners Stirling, John, and Tanner of 1stFaction have worked on the front lines of agencies and as in house gladiators of marketing . We understand the benefits of working with an agency to grow your business, and we hated the drawbacks that we couldn’t control at the time. We came to together to create a client/agency relationship that you deserve. Never work with an intern. You pay for high quality service and that is what you get. Period.
