The man, quite frankly, is a genius in communication. I witnessed leadership, not only at a team level, but at an industry level. He changed my wiring for the better, and has the ability to make change for client, brand, business or an individual. A rare fellow in this game and one of the nicest people you will encounter.
Stan combines the strategic disciplines of a highly experienced direct marketer with a strong understanding of technology - a rare and incredibly valuable combination. He has become a thought leader in the area of brand building and results driven strategy, simply by applying his unique creative abilities to this space.
Stan brings senior creative talent coupled with a great handle on the contemporary environment. Not only is he a talented creative director, he is also a fantastic team member, leader, mentor and has a strong strategic bent. He's a joy to work with and inspired me daily.
