“What an opportunity to be part of a new vibrant downtown location with Dayton’s most celebrated agency,” Michael said. “Ohlmann Group has a tremendous team and a huge legacy of delivering business results for its clients. I look forward to building new campaigns and elevating our clients’ stories.”
