New Team Members Added to Female-Owned Communications Firm

Amp Team Fall 2019

Akron, OH (Sept. 3, 2019) — Today, Amp Strategy announced its new growth with the addition of Meghan Meeker, joining the team after her work as the social media manager at the University of Akron, and Lindsey Phillips, a specialist in operations with a background in corporate banking and nonprofit communications, added her skills to the team earlier this summer.

Based in Akron, Amp Strategy is a female-owned communications and marketing firm working with diverse clients—ranging from local businesses and regional nonprofits to large manufacturers and national foundations. Through marketing strategy, creative content, media relations, and communication services, the team helps to amplify the authentic voices of organizations and places.

“Three years ago, my partner Morgan and I had an idea for a communications and marketing firm that valued real authenticity, purposeful and positive engagement, and innovative relationships for clients,” states Kat Pestian, partner and co-founder of Amp Strategy. “We quickly learned that Akron loves entrepreneurs, and we found a community of risk-takers and innovators who champion new beginnings and continued growth.”    

Now, with five full-time staff members, a large pool of freelancers, and a new office in downtown Akron’s Everett Building, Amp is thrilled to welcome Meghan and Lindsey to its team. Plus, the team has plans for two more hires by the end of the calendar year.

Morgan Lasher, partner and co-founder of Amp Strategy, shares that the core of Amp Strategy’s work is engagement.  

“We help our clients build connections with the communities they serve, and our new growth path, thanks to Meghan and Lindsey, will be a strategic one, aimed at delivering strategies and plans for engagement in even more exciting and effective ways for our clients,” shares Morgan.

At Amp, Meghan’s responsibilities will include her role as a client relationship manager for community engagement clients and supporting social strategy work. Lindsey’s responsibilities range from operating support and accounting to content creation and data analysis for clients.
