Orlando, Florida – December 14, 2016 – BIGEYE, a creative and strategic advertising partner headquartered in Orlando’s Audubon Park, welcomes Kara Baker to the team as the new Agency Marketing Manager.
Baker brings an impressive variety of skills and experiences to this new role. A Virginia native, she graduated from Longwood University in the greater Richmond area with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in graphic design. She worked for many years as a graphic designer, lending a hand on projects for such clients as Wal-Mart and Fuze. Her talents then brought her to nonprofit management, where she served as Vice President of Operations for a rapidly growing local nonprofit organization in the central Florida area providing over 50 million meals of global food aid to 38 countries. Baker’s leadership and operational expertise helped the nonprofit grow 800% in the first five years.
“Bringing Kara into this vital management role is central to the continued growth of our agency,” said BIGEYE’s CEO and Principal Justin Ramb. “We are excited to continue focusing on the development of our marketing and new business initiatives and are fortunate to have Kara’s incredible talent and unique range of experiences leading those initiatives.”
Her brilliant eye for design, enthusiastic management style, and exquisite attention to detail makes her the perfect fit to lead BIGEYE’s marketing and new business department. She has a knack for making potential clients feel at home right away and can examine the details of any problem while always keeping the bigger picture at top of mind.
When she’s not in the office, Baker, a professional golfer and former collegiate player, loves exploring new courses with her husband. She lives by the motto “work hard, play hard”, which is what drew her to BIGEYE. “I wanted to be part of a team that collaborated and truly was a team,” she says. “I’ll do whatever it takes to get the job done and do it with excellence, but I’m going to want to celebrate with my team after!”
In this role, Baker will lead the marketing department in establishing leads and building relationships with prospective clients, developing proposals, and guiding all internal marketing efforts.
