As the B2B growth agency, Walker Sands’ ability to accelerate the growth of our client partners has always been made possible by our people. Our incredible employees and strong leadership have helped guide us through a challenging year while still hitting big milestones along the way – from being recognized by Crain’s Chicago as a Best Place to Work and a Fast 50 company, to making the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies for the eighth year in a row.
Amid this year of sustained agency growth, I’m excited to announce the promotion of Claudia Beltrán, Rosita Vivanco and Tommy Schenck to vice president-level roles to further strengthen our Corporate and Client Services teams. These three leaders have been instrumental in the growth of Walker Sands, and their appointment to the senior leadership team will enable the agency to continue providing leading integrated marketing programs for our B2B clients.
- Claudia Beltrán, Controller – As one of the first employees of the company, Claudia has played a key role in driving Walker Sands forward for over 13 years. By taking on the challenging task of building our accounting department from the ground up, Claudia has been instrumental in maintaining a strong infrastructure on which the company has been able to grow. As Controller, she will continue to oversee all day-to-day accounting operations and will work within the senior leadership team to help shape the future direction of the agency.
- Rosita Vivanco, Vice President of Client Services – Since joining Walker Sands in 2018, Rosita quickly demonstrated she was an asset to the Client Services team by showcasing her deep expertise in aligning strategic communications with key business goals. Rosita has experience in organizational leadership and will continue to serve as a senior strategic counsel, while further empowering the agency to better serve its clients in her new role as Vice President of Client Services.
- Thomas Schenck, Vice President of Client Services – Tommy has been instrumental in managing and growing some of the agency’s largest accounts since joining the company in 2018. As a key member of the Client Services team, he has helped lead the development and implementation of departmental processes, and will continue to play an active role in large account management and agency operations as Vice President of Client Services.
Claudia, Rosita and Tommy have all excelled in their respective fields and fully embody the Walker Sands values of “Learn, Support, Do” – setting them apart as natural leaders within the company. I’m proud to be a part of what they’re building at Walker Sands and can’t wait to see how they continue to innovate and impact the agency.
