Jamie Takes Over–Props to the Sports Marketing Dept. at the Gregg Agency

Saturday, October 8, 2011

Seriously? Flannery’s boss gets mentioned in the character introductions post, but my work team is ignored? Where’s the love, Kaye?

Jamie O’Connor here, taking over Kaye’s blog while she’s off at her writers group this morning—to introduce you to some people I think are important but who apparently didn’t rate introductions yesterday.

(Though, I do have to say that I’m glad she only found pictures of me and Danny together as adults. There are some of us as kids . . . well, let’s just say I wouldn’t want them to see the light of day ever again.)

Okay, anyway, back to my work team. I’ve worked at the Gregg Advertising Agency for thirteen years—ever since I graduated from college. I started out in the general advertising/marketing pool, but quickly moved into Sports Marketing, where I’ve been ever since. I’ve worked with all of the professional and semi-professional sports teams in town, as well as with sponsors of all the different high school and collegiate tournaments and championships that come to Nashville. Sometimes, it’s hard to believe we get paid to have this much fun.

But, you’re not here for my resume. Let’s meet the team:

First, there’s Armando Gregg, my boss (now that we’re without a director of Sports Marketing) and the owner of the Gregg Agency.

Then, there’s the other senior account executive, Mitch Collins. Mitch has only worked with us for about two years.

Darrell Keesey is not just a Sports Marketing account executive, he’s also a good friend—and a ladykiller, even if he is short. (Just kidding, dog.)

Wade Vaughn is our junior account executive. A California guy if ever there was one. Not sure how he ended up in Nashville for college, since there are definitively no waves to catch here, but he’s been an asset on our team for the past five years, as both an intern and an account exec.

And last, but definitely not least (especially given the fact she’s taller than me!) is our Administrative Assistant, Ainslee Urbanik. Ainslee played basketball in college before going on to play a few seasons in the WNBA. She’s been with us a couple of years now and just completed her master’s degree in Sports Management. As soon as an account exec position comes open in our department, it’s hers.

So there they are, the Sports Marketing Department at the Gregg Advertising Agency in Nashville. I can’t wait for you to meet them!

    Thanks for sharing Jamie! Can’t wait to meet all of them [and you!] in TFP!

    I’d say Armando’s the one who looks like a lady killer. 🙂 Thanks for introducing them, Jamie!

    Nice –I don’t think I’ve heard of Sports Marketing before, but it makes sense. (Time to do an online search!) 😛

    Hmm … Wade Vaughn looks very familiar to me for some reason …

      You don’t happen to watch NCIS: LA, do you? 😉

        Aha! I knew it –it’s the actor who plays Deeks. 🙂

    Nice to meet the team. A friend of mine was wanting to get into sports marketing. Another worked for one of the State cricket clubs in sports marketing for a couple of years. It would be such a cool job getting to meet the sporting heros. (of course I would want to work where I could get to meet cricketers)

    Jamie, thanks for introducing the handsome gang at the Gregg Agency. That tall girl, the Admin Asst, looks a mite familiar. Looking forward to reading TFP.

    It’s fun to see your team and learn a little about them. I’m looking forward to reading more about all of you.
