Brandon Continues to Build Client Services Team in Charlotte

Brandon, a data-driven, digitally-centric, integrated marketing agency, recently added an account manager and two project managers to its Charlotte office team. The agency continues to expand its client roster with Charlotte-based companies such as Artisanal Brewing Ventures, stayAPT Suites and Wastequip.

Leah Hughes, account manager, brings more than four years of agency experience to Brandon. Hughes acts as a data-driven strategic consultant for her clients and leads cross-functional teams composed of creative, content, media, digital, search, social, PR and analytics experts.

Project managers Ellie Jennings and Kristen Fisher each bring unique backgrounds in broadcast television. Jennings was most recently a graphics coordinator at FOX Sports in Charlotte, while Fisher worked as a senior news producer at WCCB-TV before moving into project management at another agency.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Ellie, Kristen and Leah to our team as we kick off a busier-than-ever 2024,” said Christie DeAntonio, director of client services at Brandon. “They are each self-starters who value creativity, collaboration, innovation and winning.”

Brandon’s chief of strategy, associate public relations director and associate media planning director are also based in Charlotte.
