No one could be happier than me when the news came out regaring Dan Stefanich getting a position at Clam Outdoors. I've worked with Dan for many years. He's been on my Illinois Outdoors TV Show many times and started his blogging here at ChicagoNow posting on my page. Now he can read on his own page here on ChicagoNow at Dan Stef Outdoors. The announcement of Dan's new job came out moments ago.
Steve Geertsen, President of Clam Outdoors made the announcement from their 150,000 s.f. state-of-the-art facility. “We’re equally thrilled to have the business experience Dan brings to the table in this role,” Geertsen said. “He’s owned and managed a successful creative, marketing and website development firm in the Chicago market for over 15 years. He’ll bring expertise he’s developed working with Fortune 500 companies as well as other public and private sector clients.”
“My real passion is the outdoors,” Stefanich continued. “To combine my family’s way of life—hunting and fishing—with my diverse experience in print and online media, brings together what I love to do: educate, inform and inspire people and their families to enjoy the great outdoors.”
