I am ready to be active as a board member and engage my entire agency. At Squeaky, we all recognize the importance of TORCH's work among our New York City youth and the potential for the next generation of advertising giants," said Del Monte. "Squeaky will work closely with the TORCH team to better position its outreach and offerings by updating the TORCH website and digital footprint.
