"I enjoy working with the Strauss Media team a great deal. We do monthly SMT/RMT’s with them as well as periodic RMT’s and I find the team to be enthusiastic and upbeat (both of which are key during a long SMT!), while also being professional, hardworking and tenacious. I work with them closely on a daily basis and I am happy to say that it is always a pleasure."
