Some of the coolest things about being a leading agency in the travel and tourism industry are the exciting shifts that have happened as a result of our ongoing growth. Take a look at our latest hire and role transitions going on at Digital Edge.
Our newest team member, Billy Kelley, joined the DigiBunch in July as a Senior Interactive Media Designer. He has over a decade of experience in design and marketing across a variety of industries, including hospitality, health care and automotive. Taking a hands-on approach, he focuses on company brands, brand strategies and campaign direction while staying up-to-date with current trends and styles.
“I knew right away that joining Digital Edge was the right choice for me. As a kid, I spent most of my life overseas as a military dependent, so traveling became a passion early on. Combining design and travel has always been a dream of mine and is now a reality.” #NewDestinations
Billy has wasted no time jumping into client creative projects, and we’re thrilled to have him inside our purple walls!
In March, we snagged a highly skilled multimedia Digital Producer to join our content team. Colette DuChanois makes our second Content Strategist at Digital Edge and has already begun to elevate our program of work with her background in communications and eye for compelling content. She’s also a soon-to-be post-graduate, as she works toward a Master of Arts in Mass Communication with a concentration in Digital Strategy at the University of Florida.
“I feel so fortunate to be a part of this close-knit team at Digital Edge. Everyone has been so welcoming and helpful, and I could not be more appreciative. I am so excited for the future here.”
With a quick and well-earned ascent, our former Senior Interactive Media Designer, Austin Sherrill, was promoted to Associate Creative Director last month. Prior to joining Digital Edge, Austin led teams at Ingenuity Marketing and Web.com, and since then, he’s been conquering new skills and complex platforms while influencing some of our agency’s most crucial internal objectives.
“It’s truly been a pleasure working with everyone over the past year and a half. I know I’ve got some big shoes to fill, and I fully intend on doing so with an open mind and an eagerness to do everything I can to set us all up for success—creative team and beyond.”Austin Sherrill
Instrumental in more ways than one, Austin also steals the spotlight on the stage, where he moonlights as a guitarist, bassist and vocalist for one of Jacksonville’s favorite local bands.
Another exciting transition happened with one of our longtime content team members, Melanie Cornwell. She recently joined our project management team as Digital Edge’s Project Coordinator. Melanie’s background as a Media Content Editor and journalist brings an invaluable dimension to our team and services. From day one of joining the DigiBunch, she’s applied her determination, dependability and knack for detail to elevate everything she’s gotten a hold of.
“While I loved being a content writer for the past three years at Digital Edge, I’m very excited to put my organization and planning talents to work in this new role. I am grateful for the opportunity to continue growing—both personally and professionally—with the amazing team. #Content2Coordinator”Melanie Cornwell
