"I really admire what Shannon and John have built, and the combined agency's future is in great hands with Gatesman. It's a great fit and will mean additional support with expanded capabilities for the clients and for future new business." John Gatesman will continue in the role of CEO, and Shannon Baker as President, of the combined entity.
