Employee spotlight: Joe Russell.

joe russell senior project manageFor this month’s employee spotlight, we’re featuring Senior Project Manager Joe Russell. Joey’s contributions to Crowley Webb rival the number of nicknames he’s accrued around the office: Joey Jingles, Joey Sprinkles, Joey Kicks, Joey Claws, and the list goes on. A seven-year veteran of CW, he continues to tirelessly tackle every account service challenge with positivity and maybe even a sweet dance move or two. Our agency just wouldn’t be the same without this genuine, kind, hardworking guy.

We know if Joey Cocktails could be anywhere, doing anything (other than in Buffalo, New York, managing awesome campaigns for his clients), he would be seeing his favorite artist (Justin Timberlake) in his favorite city (Nashville, Tennessee). In the meantime, catch him behind the pine at AAF Buffalo’s Big Tip-Off event on August 15, where he will be sure to make CW proud. Now let’s get to know the life of the party.
