March flew by, but it didn’t stop us from staying busy. The weather is heating up and so are Franconians’ schedules. Here is what the month of March looked like for our team:

Account Supervisor Andrea Kenski, Assistant Account Executive Maddie Barnes and Digital Account Executive James Wilson took some time to explore one of Detroit’s most iconic gems – the Fisher Building. The trio enjoyed the delicious eats, beautiful architecture and all the fun shops the historic building has to offer. Detroit certainly inspires these Franconians!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! PR Coordinator Tracy Sanfilippo celebrated her favorite city by attending a 313 Day event at the Detroit Historical Museum.

Senior Account Executive Megan Bonelli spoke to an Intro to PR class at Eastern Michigan University and gave insights on agency life and Franco’s internship program. (Thanks to Professor Ward for her hospitality!)

What’s cooking? Account Supervisor Andrea Kenski, Senior Account Executive Megan Bonelli and PR Coordinator Tracy Sanfilippo coordinated two mouth-watering cooking segments to showcase Hour Detroit’s Savor Showdown on WJBK and WDIV’s Live in the D.

We hosted University of Michigan-Dearborn students from the American Marketing Association chapter to discuss PR and marketing. We even gave them a tour of our awesome office space.

Account Manager Ann Marie and Account Supervisor Dan Horn went to the MichAuto Annual Meeting at the Detroit Athletic Club to hear about the automotive industry’s impact on next-generation mobility and the organization’s 2019 strategic plan.

Senior Designer Ashley Dupuy attended her alma mater, College for Creative Studies Advertising and Communication Design career day. Go peacocks!

Account Supervisor Dan Horn reunited with his former team from GrandPR, Grand Valley State University’s student-run PR firm, to celebrate the firm’s 10th anniversary, recognize the 2019 Superior Awards winners and connect with the firm’s current and former members during the “Timeless Ten” event.

Senior Account Executive Megan Bonelli attended PRSA Detroit’s Corporate Sustainability and Social Responsibility event this month and learned a ton from the panel on how to prioritize and measure CSR.

It wouldn’t be March without Oberon Day – cheers!

Spring is certainly shaping up with lots of fun events – what are you and your organization up to this spring?
