Red Fan Communications Welcomes Stephanie Trusler as Director of Finance and Operations

Red Fan Communications is pleased to announce that Stephanie Trusler has joined the Red Fan team as director of finance and operations. Trusler will report to Kathleen Lucente, president and founder of Red Fan Communications.

“We are thrilled Stephanie was attracted to Red Fan. She brings a dynamic and proven finance, operations, sales and marketing background to our agency,” said Lucente. “With a senior PR team already in place, the addition of Stephanie’s experience enables us to shape the financial policy and direction of the agency. Stephanie’s leadership will help Red Fan meet its growth plan, while maintaining the unique senior-level engagement and accessibility our clients expect and enjoy.”

Trusler will oversee all financial and business operations. On the finance side, she will be responsible for financial reporting, general accounting, cash management, budgeting, financial planning and contract management. She will also be in charge of administering client accounts, fulfilling human resource roles and responsibilities and maintaining operational efficiency throughout the company.

Trusler is well versed in business strategy and understands what companies need to succeed. With more than 15 years in the insurance industry, she is proficient in sales, marketing and financial operations. At The Howe Insurance Group, Trusler’s role and responsibilities evolved from sales agent to company director to company sales manager. During her tenure, Trusler helped the insurance company grow from $3 million to $7 million in revenue. In addition to her insurance background, Trusler serves on the board of directors for the African Leadership Bridge, an innovative nonprofit that provides scholarships to promising, young African leaders.

“This position is a unique opportunity for me to combine my finance, operations and strategic planning background and apply it in a way that will help Red Fan grow wisely,” said Trusler. “While I will be overseeing finance and operations, I am also very excited about being part of the new business growth that Red Fan continues to attract from across the country.”
