What can I say about Frank? To utilize an over used phrase, Frank is truly a digital marketing renaissance man. Is there anything he can’t do? If you need a stellar digital marketing strategy, he’s the guy you should go to. He also brings a creative streak to his work that most strategists lack. He is the ideal team player and every team misses him after he leaves. – Director, Analytics, PwC
