Arco & Associates, an award-winning marketing communications firm based in St. Louis, announced today the promotion of Jillian Hausmann as partner.
Hausmann’s partnership comes after just two years of employment with Arco & Associates, during which the company has grown by 25%. With plans to onboard a new part-time business development specialist in early 2018, the firm anticipates another year of expansion.
“We needed a leader who could manage our quickly growing team, while continuing to provide the level of service our clients are used to,” said Andrea Arco, CEO and Founder of Arco & Associates. “Jillian is extremely savvy, with a variety of skillsets not usually found in one person. She is instrumental in ensuring clients nationwide receive a return on their marketing investment and I couldn’t be happier to welcome her as my partner.”
The partnership arrangement calls for a percentage of ownership to be distributed each year for a total of six years. At the end of that time, Hausmann will own 15% of the company.
Hausmann joined the firm in 2015 as communications specialist and quickly became indispensable. Prior to joining Arco, she worked as a Digital Marketing Strategist and Marketing Director at companies across the nation.
In her new role at Arco & Associates, Hausmann will manage company operations, while continuing to act as the right hand to Arco in developing strategy, creative, and copy. Hausmann also serves on the board of Ranken Jordan Young Professionals.
