C2 Increases Commitment to Client Service

Dan Cortez joins creative staffing firm in new role as Client Relations Manager

MILWAUKEE, WI – C2, Milwaukee’s original creative staffing agency, announced an increased commitment to client service with the appointment of Dan Cortez to the new position of Client Relations Manager.  

In late fall, looking toward 2021, the team at C2 identified an opportunity to better serve clients and expand their reach by creating this role. With the pandemic in full force, this position is also a key response to the widespread adoption of work from home options for creative organizations and in-house departments. Dan is responsible for finding, developing and maintaining business clients and ensuring that companies have access to the best pool of creative talent available.

Dan comes to C2 with a wealth of experience he gained in roles at GMR Marketing, the CoStar Group and Ricoh USA, Inc. 

Dan’s personal style and relationship approach complements C2’s client service philosophy. A rock climbing enthusiast, Dan chose a secondary C2 title, Client Carabiner, to characterize his value. Rock climbing demands planning, assessment, preparedness, the right equipment and patience. He is applying that same rigor to this role, offering a reliable and consistent resource to ensure clients ascend to new heights with C2’s creative talent for projects or direct hire.

C2 owner and president Erica Conway commented, “Dan’s background in sales and ad agency account services position him well to deliver the personalized and high-touch experience that C2 has been known for over the last 16 years in the creative staffing industry. We couldn’t be more excited for Dan to join the C2 family.” 

C2 is the only family/locally-owned firm in Wisconsin to focus solely on the staffing and professional development needs of the creative industry. C2’s roster of creative talent includes designers, production artists, web developers, writers, art directors, creative directors and all positions in-between, serving large and small ad agencies, design and marketing firms as well as in-house creative departments.
