Hello New Job, Same as the Old Job

Well, not exactly the same but pretty similar.

As of December 26, 2016 (which was Day 1 of Fiscal 2017 for my employer) I no longer work for The Kansas City Star but instead work for excelerate, the digital ad agency that McClatchy started in summer 2016.  However, I still sit in the same spot that I sat previously doing pretty much the same work.

We (Isaac Hindle and I) still provide support (using marketing research and other resources) to all of McClatchy’s local markets (including our newest market in Durham, N.C.) but we will now work closely with Carlos and Brian (who are both located in North Carolina) to support the research needs of excelerate.

I’m also still serving as a Smokejumper / design thinking coach for McClatchy (in fact I’m currently serving as a coach at McClatchy’s Innovation Academy in Sacramento) and I’m still helping out with communications regarding Project Warmth which works at #ComfortingKansasCity with its coat and blanket collection on the first Saturday of November and financial donations throughout the year.

I worked at The Kansas City Star for 6 years from 1998 to 2004, left for a year and a half to work for Decision Insight, and then returned on April 10, 2006.  During 2016, I received the Full Nelson Award, which can only be given to someone once during their career at The Kansas City Star.  Little did I know then that I got it just in time.

I love Kansas City (and apparently you should too) and I also love what I do as my job; now, I’m doing my job for our cool new digital advertising agency.  You can now reach me via email at Mark@exceleratedigital.com or by all of the ways you previously contacted me.
