“Over the past five years we have grown from a start-up to a highly respected agency” said Movement Strategy Co-Founder Jason Mitchell. “Bringing on Stephen marks the next step in our evolution as we focus on becoming a global social media agency. Stephen’s knowledge, creativity and relationships are helping us accomplish that.”
