When it comes to running one of the Mid-Atlantic region’s top marketing firms, the team at Charles Ryan Associates has learned that two heads can be better than one.

Two years ago, the agency, founded by West Virginia advertising legend Charles Ryan, implemented a number of innovative changes that included a unique management structure.

The top staff position is now shared by managing partners Caryn Durham and Susan Lavenski, who will share their perspectives on successful management in a changing business environment and their bird’s eye experiences from memorable campaigns with high profile clients at the next Elevations Professional Women’s Network luncheon on Thursday, Feb. 2 at the Summit Conference Center.

Click HERE to register. Online registration ends at 5 p.m. tomorrow.

Tickets for this special event are $30 for Alliance members/$40 future members.

Elevations is presented by the Charleston Area Alliance and Title Sponsor Dow.
