If you happen to step back into the Gee Whiz factory, you’ll notice a few new faces looking back at you. You’ll see each of them eager to showcase their complementary skills of creativity and curiosity, with one goal in common: to boost our clients’ brands into the future.

“We don’t hire, we collect. Our people – regardless of their department – collaborate on their vision to reveal real solutions to real business problems,” says Angelo Trozzolo, president. Growing the right group of all-stars has paved its way to an expanding company doing amazing work for amazing clients.
