Adams & Knight, Inc., an integrated marketing communications agency, announces the addition of Chief Business Development Officer Felicia Lindau. Lindau will focus on continuing the agency’s rapid growth, particularly in the financial services, healthcare and consumer services sectors.
Lindau’s appointment to the executive team comes at a time of increasing demand for the agency’s strengths in driving measurable results through a strategic blend of advertising, public relations, and digital and social marketing initiatives. Over the past five years, the East Coast-based marketing agency has increased its staff by 50 percent and recently expanded its creative offices, which have been featured in the Saturday Evening Post and Fast Company and on CNN.com.
“Felicia knows how to help emerging leaders grow their business. That experience will be extremely valuable not only to our agency, but to our clients,” said Jill Adams, CEO of Adams & Knight. At Adams & Knight, Lindau is charged with bringing on mid-market clients who are looking for a strategic marketing partner to help them take their organizations to the next level.
Prior to joining Adams & Knight, Lindau held leadership roles on the agency teams that helped launch Amazon.com, Excite.com and MSN and that fueled momentum for MasterCard and Compaq. Her career has taken her from Dallas to San Francisco and New York City, where she worked with such leading agencies as FCB, Ammirati & Puris, Inc., Anderson & Lembke, Inc. and TracyLocke. She also founded and eventually sold Sparks.com, a highly successful e-commerce company.
Throughout her career, Lindau has been quoted in Forbes, Entrepreneur, U.S. News & World Report, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal on brand-building and e-commerce. She has also appeared on The Today Show, CNN and NPR, and has been a guest lecturer at Stanford Business School.
