Who We Are

Stamats is a specialized marketing solutions company providing consulting, market research, creative, traditional media, digital media, live event, and business media services to the higher education, meeting planning, commercial building, and healthcare markets. We believe in focusing on a few distinct markets (Markets Served) and on developing deep and extensive expertise in those consumer brands (Brands & Services). Our history is long and rich, and our values clear and dear (About Us). Yet, we remain purposefully young and embrace change in technologies, business models, products and services. We seek to hire the best so that we can be the best possible partners for our clients, audiences and advertisers.
