Things have been changing within Firefly Legal, and we are thrilled share the news. We’ve added new staff to our team and promoted a few outstanding individuals.
We would like to announce that Matt Massa has been promoted to Vice President of Firefly Legal and Joe Belenske has been promoted to Financial Systems and Operations Analyst. Jennifer Dlugolecki now oversees the client services department in addition to her client relations and business development responsibilities.
Many of you are familiar with Matt, Jenn, and Joe, but we would like to share a little bit about their history with the company, how they have grown with us, and what the plans are with the new positions.
Matt Massa started with Firefly Legal in 1997 as a court filer and process server, learning his way through process serving, the court processes, and clients’ offices. As the company grew, Massa was promoted to the director of national operations in 2004 and later that year, where he oversaw the company operations and negotiated several contracts and leases. As the vice president, Massa will be working closely with and reporting directly to the president.
President Keith McMaster acknowledged Massa’s promotion by noting, “Matt has been an asset to our company since the start, and I’m confident that his experience and abilities will make Firefly even better.”
Also recognized were the accomplishments of Jennifer Dlugolecki, who was promoted to oversee the client services department in addition to her client relations and business development responsibilities. Jenn started with Firefly Legal in 2006, and with experience as a paralegal and knowledge of standard operations, she helped us get a few offices off the ground. Working out of the corporate office, Jenn has been working with clients at a national level. She continues to excel and we are glad to have her take on the additional task of client services.
Joe Belenske began employment with the company in September, 2009. He has worked in client services and also as a civil process associate. In February, 2011, Joe was promoted to Client Services Team Lead. Joe has been a top contributor to Firefly, and he has been recognized many times by clients for his knowledge and his commitment to excellence. Joe completed his Bachelor’s degree in Finance, with a minor in management information systems, at DePaul University in Chicago in December 2009.
New to our staff is Anne Schlagel, who is our Senior Accountant and Stephanie Irvine, who is our Marketing and Communications Specialist.
Anne Schlegel joined our team in January as the Senior Accountant, and she has an extensive background in Accounting. Anne has a BS in accounting from the University of Illinois, and she is currently pursuing her master’s degree at Benedictine University. Anne hopes to bring new approaches and ideas to the Finance department.
Stephanie Irvine comes to us with a strong background in writing and is thrilled to get started implementing marketing and communications strategies within the company. She graduated in 2011 from DePaul University with her master’s degree in writing and also holds a BA in English from Governor’s State University. Stephanie is excited to improve visibility in social media outlets, meet clients at conferences, and add to the overall success of Firefly Legal.
