Kristen Carter, Account Manager
I was meant to be a marketer. I often find myself so in tune with the industry that I can foresee what’s coming next – whether it’s predicting trends or anticipating and addressing a hiccup on a project before it occurs. I think critically and strategically in every situation and am committed to finding the newest and best solutions to any challenge.
My educational background in communications, marketing and business administration has proven to be the perfect complement to my innate organizational and interpersonal communication skills. I excel in a competitive team environment, and I thrive on developing strong working relationships with my clients. I believe collaboration and communication between client and agency teams are essential to achieving client satisfaction. On the technical side, my expert knowledge of social media marketing tools and web development programs has become a major asset in my career. The combination of my technical expertise and communications background ensures that even the most complex obstacles are addressed, resolved and communicated efficiently.
As Project Manager at Paradigm, I take a holistic approach to ensuring client satisfaction. I manage our clients’ expectations throughout the entire web development process and balance their needs with realistic, functional solutions. I also coordinate all communication between the client and our internal team to ensure each project stays on track and within deadline. At the beginning of each project, I develop custom, brand-specific website design concepts; and as the project progresses, I am responsible for implementing and testing website functionality from both a user and brand perspective. I even train our clients on how to navigate the WordPress platform once their new site has launched.
