Lauren Keeton PHX Account DirectorLauren has worked at small creative agencies in New York City and Los Angeles. She started her career in NYC in experiential marketing at Jack Morton Worldwide, where she worked on Nokia and Conde Nast. Excited by the opportunities a start-up would offer she went to Translation Marketing and was the account lead on integrated advertising and marketing campaigns for Hershey’s, Microsoft, General Motors, Reebok and McDonalds. She headed to the west coast to spend a few sunny beachside years at the creative shop, 180LA where she worked on multiple advertising campaigns for Sony (got to work with Peyton Manning and Justin Timberlake), was the account lead on the global business for adidas (had to throw away her Nikes) and Bombay Sapphire (had to drink a lot of gin), a product redesign and marketing campaign for Seventh Generation (had to wear Birkenstocks in Burlington, VT on occasion), and on an advertising campaign for Mitsubishi (did NOT get to learn Japanese). After moving to Phoenix, she scoped out agency life at Terralever and worked alongside the infamous Tina Kelly and then took a position to help Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona enter the social media space and create engagement with fans and followers. She is super excited to be back on the agency side (and swears she will never leave it again!) and part of the CSS team at McMurry/TMG. She loves to travel, hit the beach, practice yoga and spend time with her two favorite boys (the hubs and the kiddo). Smart people with different approaches no restrictions or boxes to have to 'think outside of' and co-workers who have quickly become friends.
