I like the idea that every project involves working with different data, requirements, goals and target audiences.”
Wise joined Force 5 as administrative assistant in March. She holds a degree in business management and marketing, and has worked in marketing for over 25 years.

They are thoughtful in the process and always mindful of the client’s position.”
She went on to say, “What other agency has dogs in the office, a working Coke machine and popcorn at meetings? I don’t know of any other agency that will make a plate at lunch for the UPS man when we have a cookout. It’s just a place you want to be with people who enjoy what they do.”
