ReviveHealth has added four new employees to its growing Nashville-based office: Lana Taussig as account supervisor; Laura Matthews as account executive; Bethany Doty as assistant account executive; and Melonie Levernier as accounting manager.
“Each brings a unique personal and professional background, along with exceptional skills and collaborative spirit,” Brandon Edwards, ReviveHealth CEO, said in a release. “I am confident they will contribute to and help propel our clients’ and our firm’s continued success.”
Taussig (second from left in below photo) brings seven years of experience in planning and executing marketing and media relations programs for organizations involved in various fields, including education, health care, technology and environment. Before joining the firm, she was an account supervisor at Seigenthaler Public Relations and, previously, public relations manager at Colorado Public Radio.
Matthews (second from right in below photo) previously worked at iostudio, a full-service ad agency. There, she developed strategy and created content for the Army National Guard’s social media platforms and website. She also managed a full website redesign and long-term integrated communications campaign.
Doty (on far left in below photo) has experience coordinating impactful campaigns via interactive and news media for clients in consumer products and home goods. Most recently, she worked as media associate at GolinHarris, which she joined after working at Henson Consulting, both in Chicago.
Prior to joining the firm, Levernier (on far right in below photo) served as finance manager at redpepper, where she managed day-to-day and long-range finance and accounting for the advertising agency. She previously was co-owner and operator of a chiropractic clinic in Colorado.
Nashville-based ReviveHealth has announced the firm’s 2012 revenue grew by approximately 9 percent year over year with the addition of several major clients and the continued rounding out of the firm’s executive leadership team.
ReviveHealth recorded about $5 million in fees, compared to $4.6 million in fees in 2011. Also, the firm added 34 new clients in 2012.
In a strategic mid-year move, the firm rebranded from Revive to ReviveHealth to better reflect its singular focus in health care communication. It also relocated its corporate headquarters from California to Nashville, just one year after opening the firm’s second office here. At the close of 2012, the firm was named a finalist for PRWeek’s Boutique Agency of the Year for the second straight year (the winner will be announced in March).
In 2013, ReviveHealth also continued the formation of its senior team, adding Chief Strategy Officer Bob Berra and Chief Operating Office Phil Stone. In addition, co-founder and Executive Vice President Joanne Thornton was promoted to chief accounts officer. In addition to Berra, Stone and Thornton, the ReviveHealth executive team includes Kriste Goad (chief marketing officer) and Brandon Edwards (chief executive officer).
“In 2012, ReviveHealth hit nearly $5 million in fees, with 15 percent of our revenue coming from the Health Technology sector and 5 percent from Healthy Living,” Edwards said in a release. “It is essential that we have the right leadership team in place to reach our growth target of $10 million in fees in the coming years. We expect to see significant growth this year and next from our new hires and investments in 2012.”
