Hasan + Shumaker was born from the belief that in the marketer/agency ecosystem, it is imperative to have mutual respect for the needs and ambitions of both parties for the relationship to flourish and be fruitful. We help clients find the best fitting agencies and agencies to find the best fitting clients.
Clients don't hire agencies. People hire people. As such, our goal is to identify the people best suited to help our clients achieve their ambitions and dare we say, dreams. Our approach to each project is custom fit to the client. We do not enforce a rigid process that best suits us. Rather, we cusomize the process to fit the client. No cookie cutter solutions here.
Hasan Ramusevic has led marketers through the agency review and selection process since 1989, making him the longest-tenured consultant in the field. With that comes an acute understanding of marketer-side needs, and a nuanced approach to guiding agencies towards solutions. Both have contributed to the formation of hundreds of successful client-agency partnerships, with many lasting over 10 years.
During that same 30 years, Chris Shumaker has overseen successful client/agency partnerships while leading growth and business development at some of the world’s most recognized agencies. With that comes a keen sense for custom-tailoring agency teams and disciplines to solve client-side challenges, coupled with a deep appreciation for what agencies need from clients in order for both parties to be successful.
Together, Hasan + Shumaker have over 65 years of relevant experience from local assignments to complex, multi-national assignments across wide range of industries.
