Megan O’Connell Promoted to Account Executive
Megan O’Connell of Garden Media Group has been promoted to account executive. O’Connell is now responsible for managing her own accounts, with her first being Bulb.com.
As an assistant account executive, O’Connell was instrumental in growing engagement on social media, coordinating sample programs and securing placements for clients. ABC World News Today is among many valuable placements she has secured.
“Over the past year Megan has shown us that she is a quick learner, willing to work hard and literally get her hands dirty,” explains Katie Dubow, creative director at Garden Media. “Her prior experience in Future Farmers of America and leadership at her agricultural sorority were sound building blocks for her career path in garden PR. On top of that, she is cheerful, creative and her clients love her.”
From deep dive media campaigns in regional markets to media tours to New York City, Garden Media continues to be the top PR firm in the lawn and garden industry.
Megan will continue to work alongside other account managers on several Garden Media accounts as she expands her expertise in public relations, social media insights and the garden industry.
“Working alongside such a creative and dedicated team has given me the confidence and skills to take on my own client,” O’Connell says. “Clients like Bulb.com remind me why I wanted to plant myself in the garden industry – fun, encouraging to beginner gardeners and environmentally sound.”
O’Connell graduated from California State University, Fresno with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Communications and a certificate in Special Event Planning.
