“There are many reasons I joined Haberman — the people, the creative opportunities, the close proximity to the Army Surplus Store,” said Kinney. “But more than anything, I was incredibly drawn to the positive energy and enthusiasm that flows through the agency. It’s a wonderful mix of smart, accountable and playful people, all of whom share a passion for doing excellent work.”

“I had heard of Haberman’s mission, and it was the first time I had heard of an agency wanting to do more than just good work,” said Shah. “While I’ve had the opportunity to work at several great agencies —I’m looking forward to using creativity to do more meaningful things. Haberman is just the place.”
