MEET THE NEW TEAM MEMBERS
A lot has changed at AMG since our last newsletter and we want to tell you all about it. We are pleased to announce that our team got bigger and stronger in the past few months. First came Jen Fuentes, a young art director with a contagious laugh and stunning aesthetic. Jen left the Alamo City to attend Columbia College Chicago. While she was there, she earned a graphic design degree, got some really cool experience under her belt, and developed her own brand of sassy. We fell in love with her energy and her eye for good design – but most important, our clients have too.
We also welcomed Orlando Villaseñor, a young entrepreneur turned web developer and a recent CodeUp graduate. Orlando focuses on providing memorable and pleasurable experiences for end users. His previous role as an operations manager for a successful startup also armed him with the organizational and problem-solving skills of an accountant. Is that a killer skill combo or what?
But our web department just keeps growing both in demand and in size. Earlier this year, we brought on Taylor Schleyer, a young web developer originally from Boerne, Texas. Taylor earned a graphic art design degree from Schreiner University in Kerrville. His interest in graphic design and technology stemmed from his passion for gaming, the arts and music. Combining two totally different art disciplines, Taylor says, allows him to unleash his creativity and come up with unexpected and unique ideas.
We also added Wayne McWilliams as our new lead web developer (he says he’s also a singer but we have yet to hear him). He grew up in Bandera, Texas, which he describes as having more cows than people, but left as soon as he had a chance to immerse himself in all kinds of creative pursuits. Wayne earned a degree in computer graphic arts from The University of the Incarnate Word in 2013. He transitioned to web design and development, and has specialized in building custom WordPress websites ever since. Wayne also helped organize the first-ever WordCamp in San Antonio earlier this year. Not only was the WordCamp a success, it also positioned Wayne as a leader in the WordPress community.
We put the icing on the cake, so to speak, by bringing back our long-time friend and former media planner, Sylvia Treviño. What started off as a temporary job at an advertising agency turned into a 17-year long career for Sylvia. She brings a wealth of experience working on accounts in different industries, including national Hispanic accounts, higher education, retail and tourism. She’s a passionate learner and a self-starter – always trying to find new and more efficient ways to help our clients. We’re truly fortunate to have her back on our team!
