Sobkowiak was appointed to the Board in conjunction with being elected as the chairman of KeyImpact’s Shareholder Board Advisory Council. The council was recently established as part of the ESOP company’s commitment to empowering its employees to find ways to improve the organization and to enhance customer satisfaction. Previously, he was president and CEO of Michigan-based sales agency We Market Success Inc., which merged with KeyImpact in 2007. His background includes experience as a restaurant owner-operator, distribution sales vice president, and sales and marketing agency owner. Sobkowiak also served on the Board of Directors for the Foodservice Sales & Marketing Association and the Broker Management Council.
With the passing of previous board member Sam Bailin, KeyImpact sought to fill the position with an internet marketing expert. Brennan met the desired qualifications, including experience in interactive technologies, leveraging database assets and Web-based marketing. Thirteen years ago, Brennan co-founded Stream and has since received Inc. 500, Inc. 5,000 and Philly 100 awards based on revenue growth. He is a member of Internet Innovation Alliance, Philadelphia 100 Alumni and the Philly Ad Club.
“Our top priority is identifying the right resources and expertise to help us continue to deliver the most value to our business partners and grow our footprint,” KeyImpact president Dan Cassidy said. “Gary and Jason each bring unique perspectives and experience that ensure we are doing everything possible to meet our business goals."
