LOUISVILLE, KY. - December 9, 2010 – LEAP, an award-winning digital agency, has made additions to its Client Services staff in the Louisville office, as a result of major growth in the agency’s new business relationships. Two full-time positions — Account Coordinator and Senior Account Manager — were added to the team.

New Hires:

Jacob Knight, Account Coordinator
Knight brings years of traditional buying and selling expertise to the team. With management experience in a fast-paced advertising environment, Knight understands how to juggle a slew of time-intensive tasks on tight deadlines. “I applied at LEAP because I wanted to learn from the best full-service
interactive agency in this region,” said Knight. “I’m fascinated by the interactive industry and know it’s where I belong. Digital marketing is ever-changing and is, quite possibly, one of the most exciting industries to be in right now.”

Melanie Eaton, Senior Account Manager
With six years of account management and a media buying/planning background, Eaton is adept at customer relations. She has sold and been sold to, making her proficient in both brainstorming and sales pitch environments. “Seeking employment at LEAP was a no-brainer for me. When I engaged in the interview process, it was immediately evident—transitioning to a predominantly digital agency would be a smart move. I wanted to remain on the cutting-edge of technology and still use my strengths as a consultative customer relations manager.”

“Jacob was hired because he is the ultimate go-getter,” said
Michael Wunsch, Vice President of Client Services. “In his interviews, he demonstrated progressive and succinct problem-solving skills — from which we can all benefit. His support of account managers will be crucial to the everyday project flow at LEAP.”

When asked about his decision to hire Eaton, Michael Wunsch said, “Melanie’s addition to the company was strategic on many levels. Her aptitude for managing large, national accounts — especially in the healthcare industry — was a big plus. Her appreciation for exploring new technologies and finding ways to execute them, no matter the industry, speaks volumes for her drive and determination.”
