“I am truly humbled and honored to earn this distinction. I have worked incredibly hard, and it’s nice to see some of the fruits of that labor within this company that I built,” Roeser said. “I am surrounded by and have been surrounded by some of the most talented professionals in the marketing and public relations field, and I am genuinely humbled to work with these folks and to have the clientele we do who entrust us to build and protect their brand. Good work begets more work, and it helps to truly love what you do.”
