Bailey Lauerman, the Omaha-based independent agency that trademarked the phrase “Everything In Between” to refer to the 92% of Americans living outside the country’s 10 largest cities, has expanded with a series of new hires to its Omaha and Los Angeles offices.
The hires come on the heels of new account wins in the financial services, healthcare and energy categories.
“This is an exciting time for us,” Bailey Lauerman CEO Greg Andersen said in a statement. “As we bring insights from the ‘everything in between’ to our clients, our team is strategically made up of those who have a firm understanding of the audiences we are trying to reach.”
Gwen Ivey (pictured) joins the Los Angeles office Bailey Lauerman launched less than a year ago as group account director for Cuties and UnitedHealthcare. Ivey joins Bailey Lauerman from Deutsch L.A., where she most recently served as account director for Uber. Prior to joining Deutsch L.A. as account supervisor for Target at the beginning of 2014, she spent nearly a year and a half as account supervisor for the national Lexus account at Team One. That followed a prior stint with Deutsch, in various account executive roles, beginning in 2008.
