Every now and then, our VP, Ross Homer, brings up a quirky fact about himself or an interesting story from his past. So, the team thought it would be fun to base a blog post on this. In that spirit, we bring you the top ten list of curious facts about Ross (in no particular order):

I can – and do – tell people all the time that Aria is a truly amazing, special and rewarding place to work. But, for those who are skeptical or think I am biased, get this: two of our star employees, VP Ross Homer and senior account executive Kristen Berry, both left Aria several years ago to pursue other opportunities and missed us so much that they came back (and have promised to never leave again)!

Our team continues to expand, and now it is time to introduce our three newest Aria recruits. I learned a lot about them, from their favorite ice cream flavor, to what their favorite place in the world is! Now it is my pleasure to introduce Erica Navar (Account Executive), Julia Dakhlia (Account Coordinator) and Caroline Dragonetti (Intern).

Top Tips for Designing a PR Agency Office Space

 

It seems like just yesterday that I was spending my days sorting through paint swatches and rug samples and testing out the latest ergonomically-designed desk chair (in addition to writing press releases, of course). But in fact, this month marks the third anniversary of our big move to a new office space located in an old mill in Newton’s Nonantum neighborhood. And, even more significantly, it marks three years since we officially became “the New Aria.”

For this blog post, I got to know our newest account coordinator, Danielle Adams, and account executive, Kara McCrudden, and found out some of their big life goals, dreams, and favorite things (including their mutual love of defunct bands from the early-2000’s, and Harry Potter).

If you follow us on social media, you know that at Aria, we love to celebrate any and all major milestones. Well, we recently celebrated an old one… oops, I mean “a big one,” as our President, Scott Collins, just hit the big 5-0! In honor of Scott’s birthday, we asked him to share some little known facts about himself:

I am very excited to introduce our “Pitch” followers to one of Aria’s newest employees, Lindsey Honig. Lindsey was hired as an Account Executive, and she will be responsible for things like managing speakers’ bureaus and awards programs, running social media initiatives, and executing media relations strategies. Now that Lindsey has survived her first couple of weeks at Aria (and, says she wants to stay!), I thought it would be a good time to sit down with her and get to know her a little bit better. Since she has already sat through enough Aria interviews, I figured a one-minute ‘speed dating’-type interview, a la Watch What Happens Live, would be fun. Here we go!

We are excited to welcome Olga Frech, our new Account Executive, to the Aria family.  Not only is Olga our newest addition, but she has also traveled the farthest to be here.  Born and raised in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, Olga came to the U.S. to continue her education and begin her career. We thought we’d use our new blog as an excuse to find out a little more about Olga, why she came, and how she likes the U.S.

I started working at Aria Marketing just over a month ago, and one of the first things that impressed me about the company is that there are so many people who have become “Aria lifers” (Scott, Jessica, Ross, Nancy, Chanel and Katie). So, I set out to find out what keeps people at this PR agency. Is it the #BreakfastWednesdays (a habit hard to break, once you get used to it), the diversity that each one of Aria’s clients brings to the table, the continuously evolving and exciting field of healthcare, the energetic and passionate  team, or Aria’s monthly #HappyHour event? To get to the bottom of the “Aria lifer” trend, I decided to go right to the source(s). Here’s what they had to say:
