We’re tickled to announce the promotions of Briana Gruenewald to Senior Account Executive/Graphic Design Lead and Johanna Holub to Senior Account Executive.
Super-unicorn Briana joined the agency nearly four years ago as an assistant account executive and has continually surprised and delighted us along the way with her fiery curiosity and passion for telling inspiring stories.
Her interest in all things art-related led her explore her love for graphic design, and as if it’s not enough to have a full-time job and balance life-work, she’s also midway through earning an M.A. at her happy place, Minneapolis College of Art & Design. Her eye for turning words into art and art into words is remarkable, and she’s killer at recommending all the best podcasts.
Johanna came to Bellmont Partners two years ago after stints at two Seattle PR agencies and as a community newspaper editor at the Roseville Review and is a phenomenal writer, project manager and content creator.
Johanna is a great example of how we look at our work through a journalistic lens – to always keep people at the center of every story we tell and everything we do. She utilizes her journalistic mindset in everything she does, scrutinizing strategy, digging deeply into research, asking tough questions and putting her curious nature to work for every client.
Her passion for the environment sparked Bellmont Partners’ internal Sustainability Initiative. Launched less than a year ago, Johanna has spearheaded an initiative that has already established a commercial organics recycling program in the office, which included making a switch to biodegradable kitchen supplies, a refrigerator container labeling system to cut down on food waste, a patio herb garden and ongoing education on sustainability topics for her colleagues.
Congrats, Bri and Johanna – we’re so lucky you’re a part of our team!
