With Q1 coming to a close, 2018 is already shaping up to be bigger and better than ever before. Our team continues to hustle and work hard to achieve big results for our clients, and we're thrilled to reward their deserving achievements. In fact, four members of the Hawthorne team have been promoted this year and we're looking forward to seeing them continue all of the amazing work they've put in thus far. Please join us in congratulating these star staffers below!
Shannon has been an integral part of the Hawthorne team for nearly three years, leading work for many of our nonprofit and healthcare clients — such as Chicago Children's Choir, Acelity, SimpleGrowth and Chicago Dental Society — and new business pursuits. She was recently promoted from Account Director to Senior Director and continues to focus on business growth and finding new opportunities for our firm.
Allyson joined Hawthorne in January 2017 and has already proven herself to be essential in improving project management and supporting client growth. Allyson leads the efforts on some of our local community and healthcare clients such as the Women's Business Development Center, Acelity, Business France and Wash U. She was recently promoted from Senior Account Manager to Account Director.
Britt began her journey at Hawthorne just one year ago and spearheads media relations for many clients including Evinrude Outboard Motors, American Bar Endowment and more. In her new role with being promoted from Account Manager to Senior Account Manager, Britt has taken on new responsibilities while continuing to deliver the measurable results and clear solutions for which Hawthorne is known.
Amir has also been a part of the Hawthorne team for nearly three years and was promoted from Assistant Account Manager to Account Manager. In Amir's new role, he's taken on added responsibilities to facilitate and manage work for numerous clients - including Mondelez, One Web and Red Bull - where he continues to leverage his expertise in analytical research and effective media outreach.
