CHICAGO, Dec. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Solstice Mobile, an award-winning customer experience development firm, announces its continued growth and company momentum in 2015 with changes to their executive team. 

2015 has been a milestone year for Solstice. Along with their acquisition earlier this year by The St. Ives Group, an international marketing services group, the firm has seen continued double digit growth across their Chicago, New York and Buenos Aires locations. To continue to accelerate this growth, the firm has promoted Kelly Manthey to Chief Strategy Officer and has promoted Mark Wallace to Managing Director, New York.

"Our continued growth alongside record employee retention and client satisfaction, is a testament to the servant-leadership based culture we've worked so hard to build," says Founder and CEO, J Schwan.

Building on her success launching the digital strategy consulting practice within Solstice, Manthey's responsibilities as Chief Strategy Officer will grow to include corporate strategy, corporate marketing and new service line development for Solstice's Internet of Things, Virtual Reality and Robotics practices.

"Kelly's contribution to the company has been invaluable, and we're excited to have her spearhead our corporate strategy as we head into the next evolution of the firm," says Schwan. Manthey has been in the emerging technology consulting space for 15 years. She is a founding employee of Solstice Mobile and has been with the firm since 2006.

Solstice also announced the appointment of Mark Wallace to Managing Director of their New York office. In his new role, Wallace will continue to lead the successful expansion of Solstice's east coast footprint.  In his previous role as Product Principal, Wallace led multiple delivery teams for some of Solstice's largest clients and also launched the Solstice Global Impact Grant Program. Wallace has over 16 years of experience in consulting and product management, with broad experience in implementing digital solutions in the financial services and healthcare industries.

Schwan remarks, "New York is a strategic location for Solstice and for our global clients. Mark is well positioned to continue to grow our customer experience development offering in New York and along the east coast."
