#TeamStratacomm is excited to welcome new vice president, Angela Bianchi, to the firm. Angela is based in the Detroit office and will oversee a team dedicated to product communications on behalf of Nissan North America.
Who she is at work:
Angela is a vice president specializing in the automotive industry and product communications. Angela’s expertise is in developing strategic communications plans for her clients. Also, her past experiences within the automotive industry left Angela with many close relationships with media. In her new role, Angela plans to continue to nurture these relationships and build others.
A look back:
Angela offers more than 10 years’ experience in agency, corporate and product communications roles in the automotive industry. She previously spent several years on the product communications team at FCA US LLC, and notably planned launch activities for the all-new Chrysler Pacifica and the Fiat 124 Spider. In addition to her experience with automakers, Angela also held positions servicing original equipment and aftermarket suppliers. “I’m lucky because I’ve experienced different segments and facets of the industry,” she said. “Writing for different audiences about the same issues is challenging, but fun.”
