Twice a year – in May and November – we conduct reviews with our team members where we make updates to their individual role definitions, review progress on their 6-month objectives and set new 6-month objectives.
The role definitions and growth objectives are unique to Franco and deeply embedded in our culture. While Franco team members may have the same title, no two role definitions or list of 6-month objectives are exactly alike. We’ve received great feedback on this process from our current team, and we often get positive feedback from job candidates when we discuss this process during interviews.
While we don’t only offer promotions tied to the mid-year reviews, most years we get to celebrate team members moving into new roles after their reviews…which is exactly what happened during our 2023 mid-year reviews!
We’re excited to share that Ashley Dupuy Mancuso has been promoted from Associate Creative Director to Creative Director, and Cayce Kosch has been promoted from Integrated Communications Supervisor to Integrated Communications Manager!
Ashley joined Franco in 2015 and since the beginning, she has led the design direction at Franco and has changed the way we showcase ourselves and our clients with her progressive design expertise. Ashley has worked on almost every client program at Franco. She has successfully grown her internal design team all while continuing to build relationships with freelance designers, videographers and photographers. We are thrilled to promote her to this role as Creative Director where she will continue to implement her creative vision for the agency!
Cayce has provided immense value to our team and client programs since rejoining Franco in February 2022 (she first worked with us about a decade ago). She’s taken on various agency roles, as well – from supporting one of our key 2022 agency strategic initiatives, to helping plan quarterly team building activities, to networking and creating new relationships at events, to co-leading Franco’s internal newsletter. Her hospitality and restaurant experience is a great asset to current clients and new business initiatives. We’re proud of her growth and are looking forward to watching her spread her wings even more in this new role!
In addition to Ashley’s and Cayce’s promotions, we’ve recently welcomed a new team member – Integrated Communications Coordinator Molly Anderson. Molly served as one of our winter interns and joins the growing group of Franconians who have started as an intern and joined us full time after their internship. Molly graduated from the Integrative Public Relations program at Central Michigan University. She supports a variety of clients in earned media, social media and project management roles.
