About Our Team

My mom, the salty one, advises, “Use some elbow grease, then work like hell.”

And my dad likes to say, “Trust the process.”

My brother and I would roll our eyes, and yet those two principles have come to define my business philosophy. When Snyder Remarks clients roll their eyes too, I simply smile and say, “Now, let’s go grease the wheels and trust the process.”

 

– Genie Snyder

The services we offer are a balance,

a delicate interpretation of what we can push on and impose change, and what walls are simply unmovable. Our dedicated team of industry experts navigate this tension and bring clarity and insight to our diverse spectrum of clients.
