Oatey’s Social Media Ambassadors champion the Oatey family of companies (including Oatey, Dearborn, Hercules, Cherne and more) in the field, creating unique multimedia content to be shared across social media and other digital platforms. Throughout the year, Ambassadors receive curated Oatey swag and are given the opportunity to try Oatey’s newest products firsthand. This year’s class of Ambassadors also includes Bobby Drescher and Trey Young, who were unable to travel to Cleveland.
The Ambassadors’ three-day visit included the ultimate Cleveland experience, such as dining at local restaurants, attending a Cleveland Browns game and sightseeing throughout the heart of the city. Additionally, Ambassadors were given a private tour of Oatey’s manufacturing plant and completed hands-on training at Oatey University alongside the company’s expert technical applications team. The Ambassadors also met with Oatey’s product development team to give direct input about products and share their unique insights from the field.
“We’re very fortunate to partner with these exceptionally talented professionals,” says Katherine Lehtinen, Senior Vice President, Brand and Digital Marketing. “It was a pleasure having them in Cleveland and being able to celebrate our partnership, as well as build our relationships even further. We’re looking forward to the continued growth of our Ambassador program in the years to come.”
