Bailey Lauerman is excited to welcome Joey Googe as Senior Copywriter, relocating from Dallas, Texas; Alfredo Lang as Account Director, relocating from Wichita, Kansas; and Omaha local Rebecca Van Gundy as PR Director.
Each bring significant local and national agency experience, award-winning credentials, and deep category expertise in finance, automotive aftermarket, and consumer package goods that will immediately contribute to BL’s high standards and well-crafted output.
Once again Bailey Lauerman has landed a top industry creative recruit. Joey Googe comes to us from Dallas, Texas, where he spent the last 11 years at The Richards Group.
