Arc Aspicio

IT services and consulting firm Arc Aspicio moved its offices from Virginia to Washington D.C. last year to be closer to their main clients: government agencies. But, their new digs wouldn’t allow Magnum, CEO Lynn Ann Casey’s dog and long-time company mascot, or any other employee pets in the building. So, the company adopted Maggie, a three-foot long stuffed search dog representing Arc Aspicio’s philanthropic work for the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation, as a new office mascot. “Some companies have a water cooler to gather around,” Casey says. “We have Maggie.” Casey hopes in time her company will grow and be able to afford a new office where both Maggie and Magnum can stay.
