Over the last two months, &Barr has experienced some serious growth across all departments. Finding the right people with the right skills is like a puzzle. &Barr’s existing team has worked hard to find the missing pieces for each of these positions and we couldn’t be more excited.
Laura Clark – Account Coordinator
Laura was recently hired as a new Account Coordinator. She moved to Orlando last year from South Carolina, and holds a B.S. in Marketing with a Psychology minor at Clemson University. She previously had some experience as a Media Coordinator in advertising and worked in inside sales, allowing her to become proficient with attention to detail, customer relationships, problem solving and meeting fast deadlines. Her dream is to see the world; she’s already traveled to France, Ireland, Australia and Thailand.
Melinda Gonzalez – Traffic Coordinator
Meet Melinda, who started as an intern for the digital media buying and planning team at &Barr. Melinda decided that &Barr was the right fit for her as she always felt like there was a positive and happy environment. In her free time, she likes remixing old clothes, trying new dishes (especially desserts), making playlists, swimming, watching ’80s and ’90s movies, taking pictures and traveling with friends.
Deanna Langer – Account Executive
After spending 22 years in Cleveland, Ohio and the last two in Sarasota, Deanna joins the [Tampa] &Barr family as an account executive. With agency experience as an account coordinator, she has a diverse background in public relations, social media and advertising. Loving anything outdoors and active, Deanna spends her free time running, paddleboarding, going to the beach and traveling as much as she can. Being a true “people person,” Deanna loves creating meaningful connections with clients and being a partner when it comes to fresh ideas and problem solving.
Devon Smith – Junior Digital Marketing Analyst
Devon recently joined &Barr and chose the agency to learn more about digital analytics and marketing techniques across a wider range of channels (paid social, paid search, SEO, display, web). He has greatly advanced his skill set and has experienced tremendous professional growth. So far, his favorite thing about &Barr has been his coworkers and the camaraderie amongst various departments. Every department (creative, account services, etc.) works closely with one another and everyone values each other’s input. Outside of work, Devon likes riding his bike around Orlando, playing his guitar or checking out the local restaurants.
