With leadership experience in growing successful agencies in the event marketing space, GES says Stelmach’s appointment will significantly bolster its growing experiential practice.
“(Jeff) has a proven track record in starting and building successful top-tier agencies with strong company cultures,” says Steve Moster, president and CEO of GES-owned Viad Corp. “His unique set of skills in building industry-leading teams and working alongside some of the world’s most valuable brands will help propel GES’s strategic direction in experiential marketing and create greater value for our clients and their target audiences.”

He has worked with some of the biggest brands in the business during his career, including Samsung, Coca-Cola, Anheuser-Busch and Oracle.

The company is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the growing need for experiential marketing that brings client visions to life by connecting their brands with target audiences in impactful and memorable ways.”
