EAG Advertising & Marketing, Kansas City’s first outsourced marketing department for small businesses, announced today that Jackie Kelly has joined its team as director of business development. In this role, Jackie will be responsible for sustaining double-digit growth that the agency has experienced over the past 10 years.
Kelly comes to EAG from Heartland Coca-Cola Bottling Company where she spent the past four years as a district sales manager, key accounts manager, senior project manager and her most recent position as manager of public affairs and communications. Prior to her recent experience with Coca-Cola, Kelly built a notable career in media sales with an emphasis on sports entertainment.
In her new role, Kelly will assume the mantle of EAG’s chief brand ambassador and community relationship builder. Her previous experience and success has prepared her well for this new position with EAG. Prior to Kelly, agency chief executive officer, Paul Weber and president, Michele Markham handled EAG’s business development and brand management.
“We’ve waited a long time to bring aboard someone to lead our business development efforts,” said Weber. “Jackie’s experience couldn’t be a more perfect fit of brand and client stewardship.”
“Jackie brings a combination of strong business acumen and a proven track record of relationship building that is ideal for this role,” adds Markham. “She will bring a spirited enthusiasm to our team and will connect immediately with our client base of small-to-medium size businesses and their owners.”
EAG helps its clients expand their marketing capacity by becoming their full-service outsourced marketing department, complete with C-level marketing leadership while the brand development, media placement, creative design, channel management, website design, content marketing and search engine marketing services are conducted in-house by seasoned marketing professionals.
Kelly is an Ottawa University graduate and is active in a number of philanthropic projects. She’s a former collegiate standout athlete and remains active in youth sports and coaching for a competitive club soccer team.
