This month has been a special one at E-Power Marketing! Celebrating our 18th anniversary has given the team the chance to reflect on our time here, and we wanted to share our appreciation with Larry for all that he has done, and what he has grown this agency into since starting it in 1998!
Andrea Schultz, Vice President, Online Marketing – Started February 2002
I have enjoyed being a part of the growing E-Power team for over 14 years now. Larry has created a family-friendly office with a focus on keeping a healthy work-life balance. This corporate culture has allowed myself and the team the opportunity to work hard, but also keep what’s really important front and center.
I can never say enough about the focus on professional growth Larry has provided, not only in terms of industry expertise but also management and leadership. Thank you, Larry!
Justin Tadych, Assistant Vice President, Online Marketing – Started January 2004
A long, long time ago I started at E-Power Marketing fresh out of college. I knew it all and could do no wrong. Well at least until I met Larry. He quickly made me realize that I had a long way to go professionally. But he didn’t give up on me. Larry invested in me not only as an employee of E-Power Marketing but as a person. Larry invested in my professional growth with hands on training, workshops, leadership courses, MBA classes and countless stories of past scenarios. Larry invested in me as a person by not only providing a culture that embraced a great work-life balance, but by actually caring about our lives outside the office. I feel truly blessed to have a boss that not only cares about us professionally, but personally as well. Cheers to you Larry, thank you for the opportunity to work at such a great place, for being a boss with a sense of humor and for probably having the most eclectic music collection of anyone I know.
Adrian Bredeson, Director, SEO & Social Media – Started July 2008
I joined the E-Power team fresh out of college with a PR and Psychology background. Larry took a chance on me and my skills and has allowed me to mold them into a career I am passionate about in Online Marketing. I have loved watching the agency grow and evolve, and I’ve felt honored to be a part of those changes. Larry has always encouraged us to do more of what we love, and often creates a space and position for employees based on their talents and passions. Doing what’s best for our clients and the agency has never come at the expense of the team, and that’s a testament to Larry’s mission for this agency and his employees. I can’t wait to see what the next 18 years brings for E-Power Marketing!
Ellie Gunville, Manager, Online Advertising – Started July 2011
When I first started at E-Power Marketing, I had no idea what I was in for! It wasn’t long after my first day that I fell in love with this company, this industry and the team of people I got to work with every day. E-Power has given me so much more than just a career. Throughout my years here, I’ve gained a passion for this industry, confidence in myself as a professional, a lot of laughs and memories, and most importantly, an amazing team of co-workers that have turned into really great friends! Today, I want to thank Larry Stopa for putting his faith in me as a fresh college graduate five years ago. For fearlessly starting this company 18 years ago. For his dedication to this industry and to our team. I am lucky to work for and with someone who has poured his heart, soul and time into making this company what it is today!
Hannah Jean, Manager, Online Advertising – Started February 2015
Working at E-Power has been so great. This team is fantastic, supportive, and so much fun to be around. Our open office makes it really easy to work together and chat about our weekend plans, a funny video we’ve seen, or anything! Not every day is full of laughing and lattes, but I have an extremely supportive team that has each other’s back. It is really great to know that Larry especially has our back. He would go to bat for anybody, and it makes solving problems that much easier when you have that support system. It’s so exciting seeing how this agency has grown in the last 18 years, and I’m even more excited to see how it will continue to change and evolve!
Scott Bradley, Director, Business Development – Started October 2015
From day one at E-Power I saw that team collaboration was extremely important. Part of what makes E-Power a successful agency is teamwork that goes on every single day. If one team member needs help, another steps up to make sure they succeed.
It has also been made apparent that every team members opinion is valuable to the organization. Larry has given me and the entire team the opportunity to have a significant impact in many facets of our operation and it has helped us progress as an agency and continue to be impactful in the digital space after 18 years.
Hannah Aime, Online Marketing Specialist – Started January 2016
Being a recent graduate, E-Power has been a great place to kick start my career in Online Marketing. The opportunities that I have been given since starting in January, have help me hit the ground running in the marketing world. Larry has been a great mentor and someone I admire as a young professional. There is always something new to learn in this industry as it is changing every day. Larry’s willingness to share his knowledge, give constructive feedback, and passion for his company are just part of what makes working at E-Power so enjoyable.
Emma Wurl, Online Marketing Intern – Started April 2016
I enjoy working for E-Power Marketing because of the team atmosphere. Everyone on the team has been so welcoming and they encourage me to ask questions so I really understand and learn from all my assignments. Larry has been great since I started and in the short time that I have been working here I’ve seen how much he cares for his team and puts so much emphasis on the team being successful and working together.

So far, in my short time with E-Power, I have grown tremendously. Larry has created an agency that is rooted in integrity and strong online marketing practices. I love working at E-Power Marketing because it embodies the direction I want my career to go in and is coupled with team members who are supportive and well-versed in their areas of expertise. The only place we’re going from here is up! Cheers to many more years to come!
It’s official, we are proud of our agency, and so thankful to our fearless leader! We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the team, agency and our clients in the years to come!
