TWIST Promotes 3 to Leadership

After experiencing some of the largest growth in company history, TWIST is investing in the future of agency leadership. We are proud to announce the appointment of three members to our leadership team. Andrea Buskirk, Monina Wagner, and Stefanie D’Angelo embody what it means to be Fearless Thinkers, daring to make our clients and the agency world even bolder.

“Today, we’re known for more than just our work. We stand out because our leaders’ visions for ourselves and our clients make waves, reshaping the future of the industry,” says Charlene.

These appointments parallel a drastic increase in our client network. TWIST is optimizing our team’s capabilities to help even more Cleveland brands and causes impress the world. In this period of growth, Andrea, Monina, and Stefanie will continue to help us live our promise to our clients of creating an experience that’s easy, affordable, and fun.
