MSI Communications hires two, promotes another
ANCHORAGE, Alaska, November 14, 2016 – Anchorage advertising agency MSI Communications is pleased to announce that Dani Myren and Kerry Youngren have joined the firm, and Account Coordinator Michelle Jenkins has been promoted to account executive.
“These women bring strengths, experience and unique skillsets to MSI that significantly broaden our capabilities,” said MSI founder and President Laurie Fagnani. “Already, their enthusiasm is evident in everything they do. I’m really thrilled they’re on board.”
Myren joins MSI as account manager after 17 years as public affairs specialist with the Anchorage Police Department and APD Employees Association. “I took a lot of pride in working for one of the finest police departments in the nation,” she said.
With her deep experience in handling challenging public relations, Myren will quickly become an important asset to MSI, performing advertising and crisis communications for agency clients in the oil and gas industries and Native corporations.
Youngren takes over MSI’s digital marketing from Andrea Leydon, who traveled to Brazil to work at the Olympics. Youngren is a digital-media specialist who spent several years in Seattle working on branding for national companies.
“Digital marketing is all about knowing how to reach very specific target audiences using a variety of platforms such as search engine optimization, programmatic ad buying and social media,” she said. “As the only full-service agency with programmatic capabilities and is a Google Partner, MSI has invested heavily in new technologies and certifications”.
Jenkins began her career as MSI’s front desk receptionist, but was quickly given more responsibility and moved up the ladder. Her most recent promotion puts her into a position of decision-making for client communications and project management.
“We get to work with businesses and government agencies that are critically important to Alaska,” she said. “Our clients are providing jobs and services that make Alaska such a wonderful place to live. I really feel lucky to have the chance to do this job.”
