Liz Barrett joins Stio as marketing manager and John Herskind joins Stio’s graphic design team. The company will move from its current Wilson, Wyoming, location to a new space in Jackson, Wyoming in the first quarter of 2016 to accommodate its growing staff and business.
“As we close out a strong 2015 and look to 2016 and beyond, we anticipate continued strong growth in our e-commerce, catalog and retail businesses,” says Stio founder and CEO Steve Sullivan. “We’ve continued to fuel this growth with the recent addition of highly skilled team members in operations and brand marketing. In addition to these recent personnel moves, our new headquarters will accommodate the expansion of our business. We are stoked to transition into the new space in early 2016.”
