True is thrilled to introduce Chris Sledzik, who has joined the True Team as Account Service Lead.
Chris has more than ten years of experience working with brands like Goodyear, John Deere, DIRECTV, Allstate and Farmers Insurance to maximize marketing efforts both in traditional and digital spaces. His unique professional background in both corporate and agency work has equipped him with an understanding of what clients expect—and how to act as the client internally for Team True.
A proud alumnus of Kent State’s PR Master’s program and undergraduate of Miami University, Chris has a passion for lifelong learning. His motto is, “You can’t manage something unless you’ve done it yourself.” Chris’s dedication to hands-on knowledge allows him to lead clients down the digital path of excellence and own their own message as the media landscape shifts and gives brands new opportunities to reach their target audiences.
Get to know more about Chris:
I try to stay active and outdoors—whether it’s playing soccer, running, hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing or cross-country skiing. I also love attending concerts (and musicals, shh! they’ll take my “man card”) as well as Cleveland sporting events, including the Browns. Last but not least, I’m a self-proclaimed “foodie,” sampling Cleveland’s incredible restaurant and brewery scene and then trying to replicate recipes with my wife using ingredients from the West Side Market.
Three Quick Facts
- I used to be a camp counselor and wilderness canoe guide in the summer and have traveled 3,000+ miles via canoe over the course of my life.
- My wife and I adopted a polydactyl, or “Hemingway,” cat named Schwebels who has 27 toes, affectionately known as kitten mittens.
- My middle name is Steele (after my great grandfather) making my initials “CSS” – a very cool digital-ism despite me knowing very little about cascading style sheets.
No three words sound better during a long stretch of canoe paddling than: “Granola bar break.” Although, the deconstructed granola bar known as “GORP” (Good Ol’ Raisins and Peanuts) are tough to beat too. And yeah, it’s pretty much just trail mix.
