Vancouver Columbian: ‘Ron Dotzauer comes full circle, bringing Strategies 360 business along’
Last week, Strategies 360—the leading public affairs, communications and research firm in the West—was pleased to announce the official opening of the firm’s newest office in Vancouver, WA.
The launch was celebrated by several Vancouver and Clark County officials and community leaders at a kick-off party at the Red Cross building at Fort Vancouver. At the event, Co-founder and President Eric Sorenson was pleased to mark the occasion with a donation from Strategies 360 to the Children’s Center, a Vancouver non-profit organization providing mental health services to children and families of Clark County. The office opening was also covered by the Vancouver Columbian in a feature piece about S360 Co-founder and CEO, Ron Dotzauer’s return to Southwest Washington. The Vancouver office marks the 17th in S360’s footprint across the west.
“Of all the places and all the big cities we’re in, this holds a special place in my heart. Honestly, it does,” Dotzauer told the Columbian, discussing the office’s launch. “For me it all started right here.” Read the full article here.
