With more than 30 years of experience managing national, regional and local accounts, Stan brings a broad industry background to the Commit Agency team. Prior to joining Commit, he was Senior Vice President, Brand Strategy for Goodwill of Central and Northern Arizona, where he was responsible for the overall supervision for brand strategy and marketing/advertising campaigns for the non-profit organization. Stan’s background includes B2C, B2B, nonprofit, municipalities, utilities, high tech, automotive, quick-serve restaurants, financial, retail, and sports and entertainment.

“We have had the pleasure of working with Stan for years when he was at Goodwill,” said Ralls. “I always admired his approach to brand strategy as well as his cool-headed manner with clients. That combination makes him an invaluable confidant on issues that often reach far beyond marketing and communications. At a time when we are experiencing tremendous growth, it made sense strategically to bring in an experienced agency leader to amplify the strength of our team so that we can achieve the growth goals of our agency and our clients and to continue to be recognized as a best place to work.”

“For the past several years, I have worked with Commit on the client side and have always been impressed by the team’s expertise and the results it has achieved for clients like Goodwill, where the team’s strategies have had a significantly positive impact on the organization,” said Yamamoto. “When the opportunity to join Commit presented itself, it was a no-brainer. I’m proud to be part of the already-strong Commit team and leverage my skill set to propel the agency—and our clients—forward.”

Commit’s growing client lineup and creative and strategic work continues to earn the Chandler, Arizona-based agency accolades. Taking home an additional five local ADDY awards in 2021 by the American Advertising Federation’s Phoenix chapter, as well as being recently ranked as one of the best companies to work for in the state by some of the region’s top publications, the welcome addition of Stan Yamamoto to the team only further solidifies Commit’s commitment to smart growth and its future.
