April 10, 2018
Bailey Lauerman is excited to announce the addition of eight new hires since the start of 2018. The increase in new talent is the result of a significant increase in new business from the financial services, healthcare and energy sectors.
The hiring of new talent strengthens multiple teams within the agency, including creative, connections strategy and account leadership. Seven of the new hires are in the Omaha office, while the eighth joins the L.A. office, which opened in 2017.
While widespread in capability and experience, there is a common thread shared by all new talent: a deep understanding of The Everything In Between – that innate knowledge of how to connect brands with customers between the coasts.
