White Plains, NY, January 10, 2024

Ripple Street, the leading consumer product discovery platform, was recently named as one of the 2024 Best Places to Work in Westchester. The awards program began in 2021 and is promoted by 914INC. in partnership with Best Companies Group. The 2024 list  comprises 21 companies, of which Ripple Street was awarded the seventh position. 

"Investing in your team does wonders for the numbers, sure, but it also amps up the whole vibe. It's about mixing productivity with a sense of togetherness, turning everyday tasks into shared wins. Basically, it's making the workplace a space where success and fun go hand-in-hand,” said Mike Leo, CEO.

Ripple Street embodies a dynamic culture in the ever-evolving landscape of marketing. The company sets itself apart with the unique brand experiences it offers and takes pride in providing all-encompassing solutions that delight clients. The company prioritizes the happiness of its employees, ensuring a comprehensive benefits and vacation package, an annual vacation stipend, a stocked kitchen, and open access to leadership. However, Ripple Street’s commitment goes beyond perks; the company promotes a work culture that nurtures growth, fosters trust, and ensures every day is enjoyable for the team.

"With a tenure of 16 years at Ripple Street, I love being part of this dynamic organization. We have a vibrant team where innovation thrives, collaboration is celebrated, and no two days are ever the same, said Sr. Director of Account Management, Kim Havraniak. “Over the years, I've witnessed the evolution of our company, and the culture here fosters creativity, making each day a unique and fulfilling experience.”

"At the heart of Ripple Street is an exceptional and passionate team. Having an extensive and successful career in marketing and social media, I was eager to rejoin the workforce after having two kids. It’s been a game-changer to work for a company where I continue to grow and face new challenges on the daily; all while receiving the understanding and flexibility essential to meeting my family’s needs,” said Kacie Vassari, Manager of Ripple Street’s consumer community.
