NEW YORK, NY. – Stokes Creative Group, Inc., a certified woman-owned business (WBE/DBE/SBE/WBENC), is proud to announce that Ms. Qiao (pronounced “Chow”) Wu – recently named a Principal at the company – has been chosen to lead the New York office. Stokes’ newest office location is in midtown Manhattan at 112 West 34th Street, 18th floor, where Ms. Wu leads a growing staff of professionals and manages outreach efforts on many New York projects, including the LIRR Third Track project, where she has been instrumental throughout the environmental review process.

“Qiao has been an invaluable asset to our agency,” said President Joanne Stokes. “In addition to leading the public outreach efforts for the New NY Bridge, she has created several high-tech, responsive websites, managed public engagement meetings, has been responsible for countless business development opportunities and everything in between—there’s simply nothing Qiao can’t do and she makes me so unbelievably proud!”
