OUR PANEL PARTICIPANTS: Sherri Lawton Jameson, owner of Spark! Communications, Inc., a boutique graphic design shop in Royal Oak, has been recognized by the International Automotive Advertising Awards, the Caddy Awards and the Gallery of Superb Printing Awards. She and her business partner, Robert Jameson, have recently taken a second entrepreneurial step, starting their own online retail business, Peninsulas. Robert has 20 years in sales & marketing in the automotive industry with a focus on dealer retail operations and customer satisfaction and experience research. He left the corporate world to turn a hobby into a business – applying the fundamentals of strong product development and customer focused communications. Theresa Lesperance and Patrick Blasio of PBlasio & People, a digital media agency that specializes in interactive web design, spend their days creating cutting edge web services, social media strategies and digital advertising campaigns for large and small companies. Their business model is a unique consortium of ex-agency folks who broke away from the corporate desk and gathered under one smart roof in downtown Royal Oak.
