There is no secret that the world of marketing is rapidly evolving. Sometimes, overnight. And we feel being in control of all the moving parts is a strength on a resume. So, when a resume came across our desk that read: to-do lists + organization + attention to detail + marketing = Ellyn, it was clear we found our person.
As a Project Manager, Ellyn is deeply involved in the design, execution and accountability to getting the highest quality work out the door, on time. Her primary role is working with account teams to manage their assigned tasks, monitor workload and bandwidth, and address hurdles that would prevent projects from being completed on time. Because of her category experience, she will work alongside most account teams and media disciplines.
Ellyn came to Morgan & Co. after a four-year tour with the Louisiana Restaurant Association, where she coordinated and oversaw the popular Restaurant Week New Orleans, fundraising events, and other responsibilities that included the coordination of advertising and event initiatives. Prior to that, Ellyn cut her teeth in the ad agency world on the Account Executive and Advertising teams at a several agencies in Southeast Louisiana. In those roles, she was responsible for maintaining weekly client status reports, coordination of team bandwidth and workload to ensure projects and outreach initiatives adhered to rigid timelines. She managed the planning of many events for Louisiana Office of Tourism’s National Tourism Week, and planned video shoots for financial clients.
She is born and raised in New Orleans, but finished high school in The Woodlands, TX (thanks, Hurricane Katrina). Armed with a degree in Public Relations from Louisiana State University, naturally she’s a Tigers fan. Ask what her passion is, and she’ll probably say: “I love working off of a good to do list – both at work and at home”. In her spare, time you can find her organizing, cleaning or thinking of ways to rearrange her furniture.
