Threewitts oversees the firm’s human resources function, a role she has
held since joining in 2014, when she was appointed by G&S President and
CEO Luke Lambert to support the agency’s expansion. Since then, she
continues to build a fully integrated department focusing not only on
recruitment, retention, training, and benefits, but also on shaping an
agency culture of diversity and inclusion. Threewitts has 20 years of
experience in executive counsel, performance management, and employee
relations and is a member of the Society of Human Resources Management.

“Kate’s leadership fosters a culture of growth and community at G&S,
which strengthens our relationships with clients and employees,” said
Lambert. “Her commitment to maintaining our core values and to
continuously improving our skills, workplace and culture elevates us as
a firm.”

A 10-year veteran of the agency, Laster has earned a reputation for
using his strategic communications expertise to drive results for
clients across traditional, digital and social channels. He specializes
in external and internal communications strategies, particularly for the
advanced manufacturing and building solutions industries. His leadership
also has proved instrumental in raising agency visibility, including
securing a 2018 North American SABRE Award for an innovative social
listening campaign by G&S for its client in the real estate and
construction category.

“Josh consistently delivers innovative strategies and impeccable
execution to generate results for our clients,” said Brian Hall, G&S
managing director. “Clients and colleagues alike recognize Josh as one
of the most forward-thinking, collaborative business communicators in
our profession. He applies creative problem-solving and a strong work
ethic to deliver the best possible client service.”
