This week on Get To Know 2930 we are highlighting our Vice President Carly Reeves! Being the VP for 2930 Carly takes care of things like managing expenses, making sure bills get paid, looking for networking opportunities for the team, organizing activities, managing a few accounts, and doing a lot of other things related to the operations side of the business. She is a very busy woman!
But she loves 2930 more than anything. The reason Carly and Chris (her husband) started 2930 was because they saw the way that clients were being treated at other advertising agencies and thought they could do better. They decided to quit their jobs there and start up their own agency. “We wanted to create a place where people felt safe to bring their big ideas,” said Carly.
Carly is from Cleveland, Ohio, but was born in Salem, Massachusetts. She attended college at Kent State University and Miami University of Ohio. She wasn’t exactly sure what she wanted to do in college, “so I found myself just taking classes because they sounded cool. So that resulted in taking a lot of different courses like Italian Cinema, Native American Studies, and Studying the Bible as a Historical Text.” She learned about marketing while working for startups as a marketing coordinator.
Carly’s favorite part about being the VP is that she gets to decide how our office looks and decide on the tone of the brand. “Writing our mission statement and four foundation principles was also a great part of building this business! I think overall, laying the groundwork for something that generates revenue and provides jobs has been the best part of being a VP.”
Some fun facts about Carly are: she was only planning on staying in Texas for three months, but now lives here! She knows how to ride both English and Western styles of horseback riding. She also loves superheros of any kind, and will see any superhero movie, even if it looks dumb. Some of her favorite activities include traveling and reading books. Her goal is to always read more pages than she did the year before. And finally she loves trivia, and claims to be the best at it!
