WHO WE ARE

Discover the Direct Difference

STC Direct Philly is a professional sales and marketing firm located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We work with multi-billion dollar clients, focusing on new account acquisition and brand recognition. By focusing our efforts on a hands-on, face-to-face approach, STC Direct Philly is able to bring our clients life-long customers with increased brand awareness and high levels of customer service!

Our organization is committed to training and developing self-motivated individuals and providing them with an opportunity to achieve success based on their own merit.

Interning at STC Direct Philly redefined entrepreneurship for me. Through office and field experience I learned what it takes to thrive, not just survive, in the sales business. Management equipped me with tools on how to work my way to the top.

Intern at STC Direct Philly

Justin is an excellent leader and partner who has the ability to proactively manage and adapt in the face of change. He consistently led his teams to surpass expectations and bring profit to the business. Moreover, his dynamic personality and dedicated work ethic made it a pleasure to work with Justin and his direct reports. He is always helpful and willing to go the extra mile to support his clients, partners, employees, and customers.

Justin also brings strong confidence with him and can make a friend (or diffuse a tense situation) faster than anyone else I know. Beyond making a great first impression, as long as I have known Justin, he has not just “talked the talk,” but “walked the walk” as well.

Justin and his management team are a prime example of a ‘superb work ethic’. They are so dedicated to the goals and growth of the company. It’s inspiring to be around such professionals. Justin’s go-get and upbeat attitude are perfect for this fast-paced and demanding industry. There is nothing that he can’t or won’t do for the success of his business.

I’m fortunate to have had STC Direct as a client for the past 3 years. I’ve seen them build relationships, grow their team, and expand their territory. I look forward to seeing their continued success and I know that with the leadership they have anyone would be fortunate to work with them.

President and Founder

Justin was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. Growing up, Justin was an avid hockey player, which lead him to obtain a hockey scholarship to the University of Central Oklahoma. While attending UCO, Justin received a Degree in Marketing and a Minor in Real Estate along with All-American status on the ice.

After college Justin decided to follow his dreams and play professional hockey in Rome, NY for the Rome Frenzy of the FHL. After underlying issues during his rookie year, Justin decided to turn to his degree, natural competitive spirit, and leadership qualities and put them to work in the business world. ​After finding a company that had what Justin was looking for; a team environment, the ability to be competitive and upward mobility, Justin joined the perfect sales and marketing team in December 2010. Justin was on board from the start, and quickly got promoted to Management and now owns and operates STC Direct here in Philly.
