On June 22, 2006, Hafenbrack Marketing, one of the region's most successful marketing companies, announced today the promotion of Chris Fry to traffic control manager. In this newly created position, he will focus on accelerating agency growth by delivering its full set of services.
With the agency since 2000, Fry will oversee all key aspects of production operations including assigning designers to jobs, managing creative deadlines, reporting status to clients and overseeing outside vendor support. Most recently, Fry served as a production artist for the agency. He has been providing design work for key accounts including Comfort Keepers, Grand Lake Hospital and Domin-8 Enterrprise Solutions.
According to Hafenbrack Marketing's CEO, Dave Hafenbrack, the decision to create this role and promote Fry was unanimous. "We have watched Chris develop an innate ability to organize and manage client expectations," he said. "Hafenbrack has steadily added strategic expertise by broadening our core skill set, which has enabled us to grow our client base. The continued growth in business has led to the need for this role. With his experience in design and production and his ability to work face-to-face with clients, Chris was a natural choice."
Previously with Total PrePress, Fry gained valuable knowledge on print production services that he will put to use in his new role.
"I am thrilled to step into the traffic control position during such an exciting period of growth at Hafenbrack," said Fry. "I look forward to applying previous experience to the challenges the role represents."
