CHICAGO – June 2, 2016 – As the Chicago Cubs were beating the Los Angeles Dodgers last night, Baretz+Brunelle Managing Director Jason Milch learned he had been named the firm’s newest partner when he was congratulated on Wrigley Field’s scoreboard.

“Jason is everything we look for in a business partner – excellent business sense, a rock-solid presence, and most importantly, he’s a good person,” said Baretz+Brunelle co-founder Spencer Baretz. “Jason has stepped up time and time again, his clients adore him, and it is such an honor to have him as our partner.”

“Jason is one of the most dependable and level-headed PR advisors I have ever met. His clients, several of which have been with him for nearly a decade, have trusted him to provide them with solid, unwavering counsel and support, and so have we,” co-founder Cari Brunelle said. “We could not be more excited to have him join us as B+B’s third partner.”
