As the founder of Sametz Blackstone Associates, and our CEO, Roger takes the lead on our brand strategy engagements, helping clients articulate their value, develop a cohesive verbal and visual brand, foster and deepen relationships, and differentiate themselves on their competitive landscape—ensuring they achieve their business and organizational goals.
“Everyone we work with has a mission—one that makes a positive difference in people’s lives—and it’s always both invigorating and satisfying to be part of teams that help our clients to better realize their missions, and make more of a difference. While we have different disciplines under our roof, we’re really all focused on helping organizations start and nurture relationships… and bring people closer. And that’s never boring.”

Constantly brushing a long-haired hound, who doesn’t ever appreciate it
Enjoying the arts in Boston and NYC: music, theatre, galleries (when open!)
