Stratacomm Rising Stars

By February 28, 2020 Agency News

At Stratacomm, culture matters. The agency’s values center around people, and the mantra to “hire great people, do great work, have fun and business success will follow” makes that clear. As part of Stratacomm’s people-focused approach, celebrating growth is a key ritual. With one promotion and two new interns, we have much to be excited about. We are also pleased to recognize new board positions for our team. Our rising stars are a true testament to Stratacomm’s desire to create an ever-evolving agency culture where talented, creative and diverse people are motivated and empowered to deliver their very best each day.

I also find time to support Stratacomm’s social media marketing efforts.
