Meet Laura Nolte

Hi, I am Laura Nolte and I joined Sircle six years ago. I am the VP Brand, Marketing and Communication and since I am the unofficial Eco Warrior in the company I am spearheading our sustainability efforts. Our industry has been through a lot the past few years, but now that we’re recovering from the pandemic, we are able to fully refocus our efforts on supporting the environment.
