Pile Advances McDonnell

BOSTON Consultancy Pile and Co. said it has advanced Meghan McDonnell to vice president.

She had been a senior consultant with the company here, which she joined in 1999. McDonnell has mainly managed internal and external aspects of account reviews and helped corporations manage agency relationships.

“Meghan has been a valuable member of the consulting team and is well respected by both clients and agencies alike. She has proven herself to be an important contributor to the growth of Pile and Company and will continue to do so in her role as a vice president,” said Pile president Judy Neer.

Last year, McDonnell led high-profile reviews for KraftMaid, Pearle Vision, Sovereign Bank and Twisted Tea, among others.

She had previously worked at AT&T as an account manager responsible for small- to mid-sized telecommunication accounts. McDonnell was elevated to senior consultant at Pile two years ago and is considered a key member of the company’s next generation of leadership.
