In the past year alone, we’ve welcomed dozens of new clients and team members and rolled out new platforms, new services and new satellite offices. We’ve led together for 25 years and we will continue to collaborate as closely as we always have.”

“I’ve often been quoted in saying that the agency business is the ultimate team sport – and I’ve played them all,” said Vogelpohl. “The leadership team we’ve assembled within the MHP/Team SI family of companies is definitely an all-star roster.”
