Elevation promotes four to new leadership positions

Elevation announces that four of our team have been promoted to new positions of leadership.

C.J. Hawn is creative director after serving as an associate creative director for the past eight years. “During her tenure, she has concepted, developed and produced some of the agency’s most iconic and celebrated direct to consumer campaigns,” said Elevation Principal and Executive Creative Director Frank Gilliam, adding that Hawn has led more than 200 broadcast television and video productions, successfully juggling the complexities of budgets and schedules and long hours.

Hunter Knierem and Kim Moore have been promoted to account directors. Knierem joined Elevation in 2015 and was most recently a senior account manager. Moore was formerly a senior account manager, and has been with Elevation more than a decade.

“Both Hunter and Kim have played integral roles in the agency’s growth,” said Elevation Principal and Executive Creative Director Aaron Dotson. “Under their guidance, year after year accounts for which they are responsible have steadily and consistently grown. Their leadership ensures that as our company expands, we continue to deliver work of the highest caliber to our clients.”

In addition, Carol Williams has been promoted to director of account planning. She was formerly a senior account planner, and had led strategic planning for the firm since 2006. “Without Carol’s contributions over the years, we would not be the company we are today,” said Dotson. “Carol’s work has evolved along with the agency; she never shies away from a challenge, and treats small budget plans with the same care and attention as a national campaign. Carol is charged with maintaining Elevation’s longstanding reputation for strategic excellence—a reputation that she has played a major role in developing.”
