In making the announcement, Cliff Callis, founder of the agency, says Hartman is well respected by clients, associates and the community and is ready for her new role. “For the past few years, Megan has run the operations for our business and managed client relationships. Quite frankly, she has been integral to the success of the agency. While I’m not going away anytime soon, we now have a transition plan in place to make sure we perpetuate the business.”
Callis will assume the title of CEO and continue his role in client strategy and relations, business development and mentorship.
“I’m honored to have this opportunity and am appreciative to the Callis family for believing in me,” says Hartman. “I’m committed to building on a great foundation with a focus on growth, client service, quality work and relationships. We look forward to serving our current and future clients for many years to come.”
