Since the first of the year, Stoner Bunting has added a total of eight new employees and 10 new clients. Earlier this year, President and Owner Dan Nguyen purchased a property at 322 North Arch Street, moving the organization from the location it had rented for 15 of its 25-year history.
“We just felt the time was right. The business was expanding. The property was ideal,” Nguyen explains. “And Lancaster continues to be such a dynamic environment for both business and creative ventures. It just made sense to invest here. It was the perfect opportunity.”
The growth of Stoner Bunting has led to the one-time traditional advertising business to create two unique and diversified entities: Stoner Bunting Advertising and Stoner Bunting Gift Cards, both of which are located in the North Arch Street building.
“We wanted to target our services and expertise to better serve our clients,” says Nguyen. “Each of the divisions has something unique to offer clients, but both are built on the foundation of creative and strategic thinking that has made Stoner Bunting successful.”
Stoner Bunting Advertising is a leader in home products marketing, offering traditional and interactive marketing and communications capabilities. Clients include Armstrong World Industries, Wood-Mode Custom Cabinetry and Starnet Worldwide.
Stoner Bunting Gift Cards is a leader in developing and managing gift cards sales and marketing opportunities for a variety of retail brands, including Neiman Marcus, Bon-Ton, Brooks Brothers, Sunglass Hut, Sears, Victoria’s Secret and Jiffy Lube.
As part of the diversification, Stoner Bunting has placed key professionals at the helm of its divisions: Jim Roosa and Bob Fell.
Jim Roosa is the newly promoted Vice President, Managing Director of Stoner Bunting Gift Cards. He will maintain leadership responsibilities for client service, sales&marketing, operations and growth strategies.

Roosa holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Richmond.
Over the course of 20 years, Jim has contributed immeasurably to the growth and success of Stoner Bunting,” says Nguyen. “He has established himself as a leader and we are proud to recognize his accomplishments.”
