We can all use some positivity right now, and we’re thrilled to share that three of our Assistant Account Executives have been promoted to Account Executives: Joelle Kruczek, Samantha Meyer and Tracy Wolf.
Joelle has been with our team for one year supporting several consumer clients. In this new role, Joelle will continue her incredible work providing valuable media relations strategy and securing coverage for several of our clients, in addition to social media content development and community management. Prior to joining Franco, she served as an Account Assistant at a local PR firm and as a PR Associate at the Metropolitan Detroit Diaper Bank. Joelle is a graduate of the public relations program at Wayne State University.
- Fun Fact: Joelle is a mentor for aspiring PR pros through Wayne State University’s PRSSA program, where she was a chapter board member. It all comes full circle! Bonus fun fact: during the client opening of the Plymouth Buddy’s Pizza location event she secured WDIV-TV coverage and the station brought a helicopter!
Sam began at Franco as an intern, was hired in full-time as an Assistant Account Executive and is now ready to take on this new role as AE. She has been part of our team for nearly two years, and in the AE role, she will continue with project management and strategy development for several consumer and B2B clients. Before joining Franco, Sam held various PR internships. Sam is a graduate of the integrative public relations program at Central Michigan University.
- Fun Fact: Sam has assisted client Buddy’s Pizza in the opening of six locations statewide. We’re talking PR, social media, advertising, logistics and more. She knows how to execute an integrated communications program!
Tracy began at Franco nearly two years ago as an intern and then transitioned into the Assistant Account Executive position. In her new role, she will continue her impactful nonprofit and consumer work providing media relations, event support and project management. She previously served as an intern with SS Digital Media, and prior to entering the PR world she was in banking. Tracy is a graduate of the public relations program at Wayne State University.
- Fun Fact: Tracy has worked two 24-hour+ Salvation Army Bed & Bread Club Radiothons with the Franco team. That’s right, around the clock client excellence resulting in millions of dollars raised for our community members in need. She’s a rock star!
