Yes, we know what you’re about to ask.
How is it possible that there can be so many talented, intelligent and, let’s be honest, conventionally good-looking people concentrated in one place?
It’s a mystery.
As Granny would say, PM is growing faster than green grass through a goose, and we’re happy to share a little info on even more folks who have just joined the PM family.
Dana Ball, Account Service
An expansive brain can be a real asset in account service, and Dana likes to expand hers by watching documentaries on Netflix. Seriously. While you’re watching Orange Is The New Black, she’s busy learning things. She’s also completed a master gardener program, so don’t hesitate to ask her to include gardening advice on the next status report. She’s happy to help and smart enough to know how.
Staci McDonald, Account Service
While we can’t confirm that Staci has a restaurant chain named after her, we can confirm that she’s pretty darn good at organizing projects. Considering she balances her PM life with a home life that includes a husband, two kids and a high-energy springer spaniel, organization is a handy skill to have. When she’s not busy making sure the PM trains run on time, Staci is either eating popcorn or dreaming of a vacation at a resort with a swim-up bar.
Tori Langenfeld, Operations
Walk into PM and you’ll see Tori’s smiling face. Walk by her monitor and you’ll see spreadsheets and all sorts of numbers that will make you wonder why she’s smiling. But apparently she likes the whole accounting and media numbers thing. Go figure. Of course, she also likes to get away from numbers through her painting (though maybe it’s paint-by-numbers and she’s not telling us) and getting away to the lake whenever possible.
Megan Ratcliff, Account Service
There are two important things you need to know about Megan. First, she is one of the most energetic people we have ever had walk through our doors. Second, she is the only person on our staff who has met Justin Timberlake face to face. Granted, it was the frosted tipped, purple-tinted-sunglass-wearing, Bye-Bye-Bye-singing version of JT of the early 00’s, but still, she met him. When she’s not tearing it up at PM on the Indian account, you can probably find Megan traveling, reading or maybe, just maybe, drinking wine (this is a no-judgement zone, Megan). She’s also a bit of a foodie, which is helpful for the rest of us when we need lunch suggestions.
Stephanie Maxwell, Media Services
Stephanie comes to Performance Marketing from Iowa Public Radio, where she rubbed elbows with some of the most powerful voices in the state (can you introduce us to Charity Nebbe?). Her hobbies include photography and reading, and Stephanie is a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa. It’s a good thing too – it was getting a little too Hawkeye-ey in here, lately. She has already put her expertise into some exciting projects here at Performance Marketing, and we’re thrilled to have her as part of the team.
Troy Johnson, Public Relations
When Troy is not testing his tastebuds on the spiciest Asian food he can find, or hanging with his adorable two-year-old son (Jonah), Troy spends his free time consistently getting let down by Chicago sports teams. Before you ask “Why would anyone be a Chicago sports fan?,” Troy has a valid excuse, he’s originally from Illinois, and made his way to the better side of the Mighty Mississippi to attend Loras College. He also happens to be the older brother of our very own Ryan Johnson, and with the combined height of almost 13 feet, the Johnson brothers are looking into starting PM’s first basketball team.
A huge welcome to the newest members of the PM family.
