HB recently sat down with Melanie Cohn to discuss social media strategy, the Boston business community and her role at Dunkin’ Donuts.
Last month my colleague Chuck Tanowitz and I had the opportunity to visit our friends at Tunheim in Minneapolis. We toured their beautiful office, enjoyed appetizers and cocktails, learned more about each agency and discussed industry trends.
