Digital marketing agency Carat Fusion announced yesterday that it has added five new staff members in its New York office to handle media planning, buying and strategy duties on several accounts. The expanded media department comes amid continued demand for the agency’s interactive advertising services and solid growth in its New York client base.
The agency has hired Lauren Ljubicich as an Associate Media Director. Previously, Ljubicich honed her skills in media by working for four years in the media planning department of Carat USA, most recently as an Account Supervisor on the Pfizer brand. Before that, she worked at The Media Edge on Philip Morris, LG Electronics and Campbell’s.
In addition, Carat Fusion has hired Lindsay Blake as a Media Supervisor; Garrett Albanese as a Media Planner; Cynthia Pai as a Media Planner and Brittany Griggs as an Assistant Media Planner.
The new staff will primarily work on media planning and buying services on behalf of agency clients Pfizer and Alberto Culver.
“We’ve built the best media group in the business because we’ve hired the most talented folks around,” said Renny Gleeson, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Carat Fusion’s New York office, in a statement. “It’s a testament to our team and the quality of their work that we can continue to attract such high-caliber people.”
The New York office of Carat Fusion works on creative, media, search and data intelligence services on behalf of clients including 1800Flowers.com, Alberto Culver, Papa Johns, Pfizer, RE/MAX, Revlon and Schick. The office is located at Three Park Avenue in New York City.
