Shout out to Nicholas Staal today who is celebrating 20 years at UpShift (actually a bit longer if you count his internship.)
Nick was Full-time Hire #1 back in 2001—and he’s also #1 in a lot of other ways. Anyone who has worked with UpShift knows that we couldn’t do it without him.
When I got the urge to expand UpShift nationwide in 2018, Nick stepped up and headed up our Chicago office. Since then, we’ve built a small team in LA and we’re known as one of the nation’s leading agencies in real estate branding and marketing.
People know Nick to be hard-working, level-headed, highly creative and dedicated to delivering a product built with care.
I’m proud to call him not just my business partner but a dear friend.
Drop him a line to say, “Congratulations, Nick!” Here’s to the next 20.
