“At an agency of our size, we each wear a lot of hats and not one of them is a crown,” says Electrum Branding Founder and CEO Ellen Schlafer. “And although we value talent, passion, and commitment much more than titles, Roger and Tom have clearly earned the respect these titles afford. Their contributions to Electrum’s success and our clients’ satisfaction are immeasurable.”
