BE Adds New Talent

In addition to the new team members from Axiom, we also welcomed a whopping seven new team members to BrandExtract this quarter.

First, two new faces joined the Creative team. Doug Timmermeyer is filling the role of Creative Director. He is passionate about brand strategy's ability to effectively tell a company's story. And Eleanor Shanks, who combines her love of graphic design with user experience to help fine-tune designs, joined on as the new Graphic Production Designer.

In the Interactive team, Jonathan Coen joined as our new Web Strategist. A lover of both design and analytics, Jonathan hopes to bridge the gap between the two in order to create better holistic marketing experiences.

Joining the Digital Marketing team is Copywriter Ben Gonzalez. His passion for sharing people’s experiences through prior experience in journalism is developing impactful narratives for brands.

The Account Services team also welcomed two new faces. Sasha Shylo joined the team as a Brand Manager. She's using her dedication to narrative-building to express brands' qualities and values. Along with her, is Brand Strategist Rose Mulroney, whose extensive B2B experience enables her to tell compelling company stories that inspire belief in the brands' customers.

Finally, the Operations team saw the addition of a new Traffic Coordinator, Cindy Steward. Cindy is bringing value to BrandExtract by providing a stronger sense of organization—something she's equipped to do thanks to all her years of bringing order to a variety of agencies.

This boatload of new talent is already kicking BrandExtract into overdrive. Get to know them even better by reading the full news piece or by exploring their bios.

This past October, our team volunteered at Special CHEERS, a non-profit that specializes in therapeutic services and personal development for children and young adults with developmental challenges.

Out on the Special CHEERS property, one group of BE team members applied fresh paint jobs to some of the organization's wooden sheds and benches. Meanwhile, others organized tool sheds and dug up post holes for a new outdoor patio.

Since 2002, Special CHEERS has served over 800 Houston-area children with therapeutic services. We were honored to have the chance to work with them and maintain some of the structures around the property, and were proud of our team for stepping up to help.
