Bandwidth Marketing Hires Mike Downs as Account Executive

EVANSTON, IL, March 15, 2012 — Bandwidth Marketing is proud to announce that Mike Downs will be joining the team in an Account Executive role. Graduating from Purdue University, Downs majored in accounting with minors in finance and international business.

Downs, 22, will be responsible for project management and account services on clients including Blue Note Records, Culligan, various pharmaceutical companies, and small start-ups. Downs interned at Bandwidth for two summers, getting the flavor of this creatively driven boutique agency where his marketing know-how flourished.

“ The Bandwidth environment and broad creative solutions they come up with solidified my decision — I couldn’t be happier.”

Founded in 2005 by veterans of Wunderman/Y&R and Frankel/Publicis, Bandwidth Marketing Group is a boutique marketing firm that specializes in consumer & trade advertising, sales promotion, sponsorship, retail design, brand web-site creation, and strategic consulting on channel marketing, multi-unit retail, and new product innovation. From Fortune 500 companies to start-ups, Bandwidth has driven sales for Ticketmaster’s TicketsNow, GoreTex, O-Cedar mops and brooms, and Allstate—to name a few.

Rob Albertson, Managing Director, states “We’re very excited to welcome Mike onto the team, and I know he’ll handle accounts with ease—though his ping-pong backhand needs work.”

Incidentally, one of Bandwidth’s conference tables happens to be a ping-pong table.
