PWM Brings on Business Development and Marketing Director Brian Strandes

Denver, CO, August 10, 2020: PWM Planning is proud to announce and welcome business development expert Brian Strandes as the company’s new Director of Marketing. Strandes brings an exceptional amount of skill and gravitas to the position – and his client relations and people skills are poised to be a huge asset to the firm.

“There is just no equation in my mind in which the client doesn’t come first,” Strandes said. “And the team at PWM knows that as well as I do. That was one of the things that attracted me to this opportunity. So many businesses claim to care, but it is really the foundation of everything PWM does. Expertise and heart are a pretty rare and impactful combination.”

Denver managing partner, Tripp Gebhard, said “Brian was actually a PWM client first. From the minute I met him, I knew he was someone I had to have on our team. He is an incredible communicator, a strategic thinker and someone who will elevate our business and our client experience to the next level.”

Strandes joins PWM after owning and operating the successful Denver-based staffing firm, 10 til 2. Under his leadership, the company substantially expanded its suite of services and also launched 9 to 5 Search, the recruitment leg of the HR business. Strandes is highly involved in the community and has served Greenwood Village on the Board of Adjustments & Appeals, and currently as Chairman of the Planning & Zoning Commission.

Gebhard added, “This strange year has taught us many lessons, not the least being the importance of surrounding ourselves with great people. We are thrilled to have Brian on our team.”
