“Sustained growth doesn’t just happen; it takes smarts, skill and hard work,” stated David Stevenson, CEO, Two by Four. “Over the past seven years, we’ve seen phenomenal growth largely due to our executive team. And as key leaders on that team, Jessica, Amy, and Annie have impacted every one of our clients. Their official asscention to these new leadership positions will only make us a better agency for our clients, partners, staff and culture.”
Romaniuk joined Two by Four in 2018 and was most recently Vice President of Media, Social and Public Relations, where she built teams from the ground up in the traditional, digital, social, and earned media space, quadrupling revenue over the last three years. In her new role, Romaniuk is responsible for the overall leadership of the Chicago office, managing budgets, growth, and client development.

Tsikretsis continues to lead all aspects of Production and now adds P&L responsibilities for the Creative department to her purview. She reports to Romaniuk and Chief Creative Officer Adam VonOhlen.
“When I joined Two by Four, I quickly knew it was a perfect fit because of the passion and dedication everyone had for great client work, but more importantly, how everyone worked as a team and authentically had each other’s backs,” stated Romaniuk. “My goal is to continue to foster our unique team-agency environment, unveil career growth and creative opportunities for our staff, and accelerate the growth we’ve continued to see.”
“I started my career at Two by Four and have been fortunate enough to grow professionally and learn from the best over the last eight years,” stated Corbett. “This agency has provided me with a deep understanding of the industry, which along with insight into Two by Four’s history and process, will help me succeed in this new role. I’m thrilled to continue the next chapter of my career with Two by Four.”
“I’m excited to take on the new responsibility of financial oversight and growth of our Creative and Production Departments,” stated Tsikretsis. “At Two by Four, our Creative and Production departments are so intertwined, this is a very natural fit for me. We expect to see aggressive growth through exciting new creative and production services and capabilities.”
