Stacy Van Wickler
Stacy Van WicklerStrategy
Our resident geek, Stacy learned early the art of interactive marketing – back then, Ogilvy called it direct mail. So when direct went dotcom, she was poised to lead us in our digital, social and mobile capabilities.

Stacy brings the big picture: an ability to take a wide look at your brand and narrow it down to its core promise — the single key differentiator and unique proposition to get your customer’s attention. She’s brought her multi-dimensional strategy to multiple new product and business launches, including: Ryder Trucks; Compaq iPAQ; DeVry University; Bank of America; Voom Satellite; the Wall St. Journal; Smirnoff Vodka; Nationwide Insurance; and Gevalia Kaffe.
