Planet Propaganda has hired industry veteran Shannon Stauff as Director of Business Development, based in St. Paul, Minnesota. Stauff has 20 years of agency experience, most recently serving in business development roles in the Twin Cities for Latitude, Preston Kelly, and the Integer Group.
Stauff has facilitated successful client / agency relationships in many industries including retail, home improvement, food and beverage, and QSR for clients like Best Buy, Subway, Lowe’s, LG, and Dr. Pepper / Snapple.
“My role at Planet is to listen more than I talk. I truly believe that healthy partnerships start from meeting people and organizations where they are, and working through the right path to success as a collective team,” said Stauff. “Planet’s collaborative and solutions-oriented business development mindset, and history of long-lasting client partnerships, felt like a natural fit for my approach.”
“The Director of Business Development is often a client partner’s first interaction with Planet, so finding the right person for this role was very important to me,” said Dana Lytle, Founder / CEO / ECD. “Shannon brings an insightful perspective on all aspects of the industry, and has an empathetic and win / win approach to discovering and attracting organizations that we can help build strong brand legacies for.”
