Google+ Introducing Our New Ad Director! - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

I know, I know: April showers bring May flowers and all that good stuff, but this spring has brought plenty of other changes to the SW office. Lara is busy growing a human, for one, we’re moving to a brand new office and soon we’ll be expanding our team! (So much for a few measly showers and flowers, huh?)

The past few months have been especially busy and exciting for me, too. Tomorrow, I’ll be leaving Southern Weddings for the land of law school and student debt. (Trust me: it’s scarier than it sounds.) After nearly two years with Lara, Emily and the SW crew, it’s hard to imagine my day-to-day without them or this beautiful blog, but we’ll save the sappy post for tomorrow, okay?

Though my time at Southern Weddings sadly is coming to a close, I couldn’t be more excited to announce our new Ad Director. We scoured the blogosphere and reviewed scores of resumes looking for the perfect gal to take over the advertising reigns, but in the end realized she’d been right under our noses the entire time. Yes, folks, I’m happy to say the new Southern Weddings Ad Director is a familiar (and friendly!) face to most of you.

Please join me in giving a good old-fashioned “howdy” to Whitney Davis, Southern Weddings Ad Director extraordinaire! Whitney has been an integral part of the SW team for the past two years, and many of you have followed her transition from college intern to editorial assistant and, now, to our new director of advertising. There are few people who know the SW brand, community and sponsors as well as Whitney, and I couldn’t dream up a better person for the job. The fact that her initials are W.E.D. is just further proof that Whitney was born for this industry!

Her best attribute, though? Girlfriend can work a Smilebooth like it’s her job – which, as a member of this fun-loving team, it kind of is.

Written with love by Katharine
