  • Stephan is one of the most brilliant marketers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. In this industry very few people “get it” and working with Stephan has given me a front row seat to the ideas he generates and the careful plan of execution he puts into motion. His contributions as a Marketing Manager directly impacted our business and bottom line. He was a major component of our business and it’s growth. I highly recommend Stephan Bociurkiw for employment. He is one of the best hires I ever made and certain to be a key asset to any organization.
