Brogan & Partners has named four new associates—Katie Rehrauer, Sarah Komar, Mary Edbrooke and Hal Atkins. Deb Wood was also promoted to associate creative director. Ellyn Davidson, managing partner for the full-service marketing agency, made the announcement.
“Our associates are treasured agency leaders, with skill sets that reflect and enhance our culture,” Davidson said. “Each one of these team members epitomizes the Brogan experience—creative, smart and fiercely driven to deliver client results. They’re the talent everyone wants on their team.”
Rehrauer, account director, joined Brogan three years ago from Advantage Waypoint in Farmington Hills. At Brogan, she leads accounts for healthcare, government and nonprofit clients. Clever, tenacious and exceedingly likable, Rehrauer has helped clients raise money, motivate healthy behaviors and enroll in programs by the hundreds of thousands.
Komar, art director, works on various accounts including healthcare, governmental, specialty retail and nonprofit. Her creative design work spans across mediums from video to collateral and digital to social media. Ever curious and dauntless, Komar’s often recognized for exhausting the agency’s coveted values “hunger for success” and “drive to get things done.” This translates into a steady stream of new ways to articulate brand stories.
As the production director for Brogan’s publishing accounts, Edbrooke oversees the entire production team at Brogan’s North Carolina office. She knows the business inside and out, as she has worked in the field in various capacities since 1995. She’s an expert in developing digital publishing workflows and has put her skills to use for agency clients like the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.
Atkins oversees the publication of more than 50 scientific articles monthly for a federal governmental client and plays an important role as the agency’s web director on publishing accounts. Atkins joined Brogan three years ago after working at Apple. His residency at the tech giant is apparent in his fearless attempts at everyday genius to improve efficiency and user experience for Brogan clients. He has also led the agency’s adoption of new technologies and implemented positive changes in the IT infrastructure.
Wood was promoted to associate creative director for the agency. She joined Brogan four years ago after working for small, prestigious Ann Arbor design firms. But for most of her career she ran her own. She’s worn the hats of account executive, strategist, illustrator, photographer, production manager and programmer. Her conceptual thinking and passion for great design has helped Brogan earn many awards, most recently Best of Show in the D Show.
