Our Team

Team

We were founded in 1989 by Kay Wilson, who, with an eclectic background – planning director, facilitator, and environmental professional – saw the need for integrated environmental and communication services. We’ve carried on this tradition as the company has grown into a collective of highly motivated environmental planners, marketers, brand strategists, social media experts, web designers and more. This unique team goes the extra mile, breaks down barriers, and collaborates to identify the best solutions to address our clients’ needs.

I deeply appreciate Circlepoint’s recognition and help. I wouldn’t be where I am without the aid and direction from my colleagues. I know I chose right when coming to Circlepoint.
