Flexible Plan Investments Marketing Team is growing!

Bloomfield Hills, MI - October 7, 2015 - Flexible Plan Investments, Ltd., a leading provider of active investment management solutions, is pleased to announce that Karyn Stano and Chris Bobcean have joined the firm in an effort to expand the marketing team. They will both be fulfilling newly created positions, Ms. Stano as Chief Marketing Officer and Mr. Bobcean as Director of Digital Marketing.

Combined, Karyn and Chris bring over 40 years of marketing, advertising and digital expertise to FPI. “We have a strong marketing team and bringing Karyn and Chris on board will help us further tell the story of active investment management to financial advisors and their clients.” – Jerry Wagner, CEO of Flexible Plan Investments.

Ms. Stano will be responsible for identifying and prioritizing marketing opportunities, promoting the FPI brand strategy, and working closely with the sales team on the growth of the business. Mr. Bobcean will focus on the growth of the firm’s digital marketing efforts, including social media strategies and integrated marketing campaigns.

Ms. Stano has had a very successful career in both sales and marketing. She comes to Flexible Plan Investments with a unique background and ability to understand both the sales and marketing process. Ms. Stano spent most of her sales career as a marketing consultant, creating programs for large and small corporations, like Beaumont Hospital, Volvo of North America, and Detroit Public Television. Prior to FPI, the last few years of her career were spent with the mortgage giant Quicken Loans as a marketing strategist, where she was fortunate to work on many large-scale marketing campaigns.

Mr. Bobcean will provide the FPI marketing team with access and insight into a broad array of digital marketing channels further increasing the firm’s ability to communicate with financial advisors and their clients. Over his career, he has worked with many subject matter experts in the digital marketing field and has supported large brands including The Lincoln Motor Company, General Motors, ACDelco, The Detroit Red Wings, BankRate, and ESPN. Mr. Bobcean has experience with both the client and agency side of marketing and has preached from day one of his career (which started in the early 1990s) the importance of providing a quality user experience through all available digital channels.

The firm is currently hiring for additional positions within the marketing team, including project manager, digital marketing specialist, front-end web developer, and graphics designer.
