Clients, Staffers Join Larger Images USA

ATLANTA Images USA has added three clients, three employees and expanded its office space, the shop said.

The independent Atlanta shop, which specializes in multicultural marketing, recently completed market research projects for AOL and pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca. It is conducting research for Teligence, a Canadian-based online dating service.

Because of the additional work, the shop has hired Ricki Fairley-Brown as vice president of strategy and planning, Jason Williams as vice president of client services and Robin Phillips as a tourism specialist.

Previously, Fairley-Brown owned her own company in Atlanta. She also has worked for Coca-Cola and was vice president of marketing for Chupa Chups USA. At Images, she manages the shop’s account planning department.

Williams previously owned Gelignite Communications in Atlanta. Before that, he was a vice president at the William Mills Agency and Edelman Public Relations, both in Atlanta. He is responsible for managing Images’ account service and public relations teams.

Phillips has more than 20 years experience in the travel industry and will supervise Images’ emerging travel and tourism practice.

Internally, the shop has promoted graphic designer Justin Jordan to art director, administrative assistant Michelle Browner to executive assistant to the president, and intern and account coordinator Wyatt Jefferies to public relations coordinator.

The shop leased an additional 1,365 square feet in its midtown location for a total of 7,800 square feet of office space.
