Stephanie Polkowski, Marketing Account Manager


Stephanie Polkowski joins Phoenix Innovate from the team at Avanzado and brings 12 years of experience in client account management. She earned her bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Michigan-Dearborn. 

At Avanzado, Stephanie skillfully executed marketing campaigns for regional and national clients. Her experience in customer engagement, project planning, and business development helped propel Avanzado’s growth in the industry. Stephanie’s work focused primarily on data-driven marketing and brand strategy, making her a tremendous value to us at Phoenix Innovate.

Says Stephanie, “I believe in building relationships. My priority with colleagues and clients alike is engaging in meaningful interactions that build rapport and trust. Purposeful connections produce collaborative exchanges. And those result in a loyal and assured client base.”

Stephanie has worked with a broad base of clientele, including those in real estate, recruiting and financial services. She has extensive experience working with big box recruiters, which will prove a great asset with several of our clients in the post-pandemic hiring boom. 

“Stephanie’s knowledge of data, marketing strategy and direct mail are a perfect fit in the services we provide at Phoenix. We are excited to add her marketing experience to the solutions we provide our clients,” says Mark Gaskill, Phoenix Innovate’s EVP of marketing and research.

CEO Kirk Vercnocke agrees. “We are excited to have Stephanie join our Marketing solutions team,” says Kirk. “Her unique combination of technical and interpersonal skills helps her engage with our clients, provide valuable solutions and forge lasting relationships.” 

Stephanie enjoys a variety of outdoor activities, including golf, running and fishing. She recently got a puppy, Cash, whom she likes to take on walks and on her weekend trips up north.
