Tampa, FL (PRWEB) February 24, 2016
Alex Clevenger has been named General Manager at My Classified Ads-Russell Johns, a media sales/advertising firm formed in 2014 when two nationally known Bay area firms combined to form MCA-RJ and consolidated their operations under one roof in Tampa. Clevenger was hired three years ago at MCA (http://myclassifiedads.net).
Clevenger has a BA in advertising from Michigan State University (MSU). He started with MCA right after graduation as a Media Coordinator. Prior to his most recent promotion, he was a Senior National Media Executive, responsible for managing a large portfolio of niche marketing and retail accounts.
In his new position Clevenger will manage many of MCA-RJ’s day-to-day operations. In addition to acting a liaison with national clients, he’ll work with employees to streamline processes and increase sales.
“I am very honored and humbled to be given this opportunity. MCA-Russell Johns has been at the forefront in the advertising industry for over 40 years,” the new general manager said. “I believe we’re just getting started in the industry and have big things to come. I look forward to working with our employees to help drive MCA-Russell Johns into the future.”
Clevenger’s major at MSU was in Communication Arts and Sciences; Advertising. He has experience in social media, public relations, customer service, account management, digital marketing, social networking, SEO, and time management. His specialties: newspaper and magazine advertising. He also has experience in TV and radio placements.
MCA-RJ’s CEO Blaire Fanning made the official announcement of Clevenger’s promotion.
“Alex is a talented individual with a great work ethic and positive mental attitude,” she said. “The key to our company’s progress has been staffers working together to help our clients achieve success. We expect Alex’s experience and initiative to play a major role in making that effort even more efficient and effective.”
Clevenger was already an MCA employee when the full-service ad agency took over Russell Johns Associates in March 2014. At that time MCA was in Hillsborough County; Russell Johns was based across the Bay, in Pinellas County.
MCAads.com is part of an awarding-winning, decades-old media group made up of My Classified Ads, Print & Radio, Media Mix Power and Blaire.co. Fanning felt that Russell Johns (http://russelljohns.com) was a good fit so she consolidated MCA-RJ under one roof at a state-of-the-art facility with a Tampa address: 5020 W. Linebaugh Ave., Suite 210.
“MCA Ads always believed in the value of print advertising, and we were excited about the ongoing potential of Russell Johns,” Fanning said. “We felt that it was a perfect fit for our growing business.”
Helping take that business to the next level will be a primary duty of its new general manger, Alex Clevenger.
