Today, we are very proud (and excited!) to let you in on a little secret. To be honest, it’s one that our clients have been privy to for a while. Her name is Dawn Wentzell (@saffyre9) and she’s the new new Senior Account Manager for Outspoken Media.
Everyone please welcome Dawn. Dawn kicks ass.
Though her title says Senior Account Manager, we’re a shop of four. That means titles don’t get you out of what needs to be done. So, just like the rest of us, Dawn will be doing a little bit of everything as we continue to grow and take over the world. Dawn’s our first official hire, so we wanted someone who could quickly help us out with client work and assist with a wide variety of SEO and project management duties. Lucky for us, Dawn was both qualified and crazy enough to accept a position working with Outspoken (yey!). Unlucky for me, Dawn resides in Canada so I still don’t have someone to bring me coffee (drat!). We’re working on that for the next employee.
A bit of background on Dawn: She’s Canadian (eh!) and began building Web sites in 1997. She got her official start answering phones and doing customer service for a Web agency in Guelph. Within a few years, she worked her way up to Senior Designer and found herself with a strong and morbid interest in technical SEO, getting hands on experience working with small businesses and local search. She sometimes blogs at dawnwentzell.com and I’m thinking of asking her to blog for lisabarone.com, too. Blogging on vanity domains is the all the rage, after all.
More background on Dawn: Neither Rae, Rhea nor myself could love her any more. We think she’s the perfect complement to our working styles – she’s smart, capable and isn’t afraid to get loud when she doesn’t agree with something. She’s a great fit for us and I’m so glad she’s here and that we can finally announce it.
To Dawn, we’d like to officially welcome you on board. We’re psyched to have you and so thrilled about the value that you’ve already started bringing to our clients. On a personal note, I very much look forward to dragging your sorry ass to The Ranch for some good Country music the next time I come to visit. So get your boots ready. ;)
There you have it. Outspoken Media is now a team of four. And together, we’re even more Outspoken than ever. Huzzah! Lets give the girl a good welcome!
