Brand Storytelling Agency and Visual Design Firm Open New Long Island Location to Better Serve both Local and National Clients
Smithtown, NY – April 8, 2014 – Long-time collaborators Arthur Germain, principal and chief Brandteller of brand marketing and public relations agency Communication Strategy Group, and Michael Simbrom, president of visual design firm Simbrom Creative, have opened the doors to a new, shared agency location at 1020 West Jericho Turnpike, Suite 210, in Smithtown, NY, to better serve regional Long Island businesses while acting as a base of operations for national and international clients.
Germain and Simbrom, frequently collaborated from separate East Northport offices. The decision to forge a strategic partnership and open a new office together was an easy one. “We felt there was a strong connection between our brands with Communication Strategy Group providing brand strategy, public relations and content marketing and Simbrom Creative providing visual strategy and creative development,” says Germain. “We each bring a valuable perspective to client engagements, and those perspectives have created award-winning marketing programs for our respective clients.”
The new Smithtown offices include a reception area, private executive offices, a large customer collaboration room, as well as a smaller conference room for private meetings. “It’s in a central location for Hauppauge Industrial Park and other Long Island-based clients, and is a convenient location, accessible by plane, train or car for our NYC and other national clientele,” says Simbrom.
In addition to the new offices, Communication Strategy Group is expanding its staff, adding two new employees to its growing roster of contributing writers, media relations experts, content marketers and demand generation specialists.
Lisa Hazen joins the team as a Client Account Manager responsible for establishing and implementing strategic and tactical communications plans for agency clients. She brings more than a dozen years of B2B and B2C marketing experience in industries that include software, security and lifestyle goods and services.
Valerie Zeman joins the agency as Administrative Marketing Assistant responsible for assisting with executive, agency and office operations. Zeman brings insight from her experience managing daily operations at large non-profits and professional services firms.
