Crash Creative Celebrates New Year With New Location, New Hires

Monday, January 8, 2018

Local web development and marketing team Crash Creative rang in the new year in a new office space with a growing team.

With the addition of a content specialist and new project manager assistant, the now 15-person strong team had outgrown its former space in The Edney. Now located on the second floor of the Loveman's Building, Crash Creative is ready and excited for growth opportunity, said Founder Brian Chaney. 

Before joining the Crash team, Content Specialist Gabrielle Chevalier previously worked as a writer and assistant editor for the Chattanooga Times Free Press and its various publications, including Chatter and Get Out magazines. 

"Crash is a new and exciting challenge," Ms. Chevalier said. "Online marketing is always evolving, and keeping a finger on the pulse of those changes and knowing how word choices factor into the success of a campaign or website is my focus every day. Basically, I get to be surrounded by people who let me nerd out about words every day. I love it."

For Kristjan Grimson, becoming a member of the Crash team meant a shift to a relatively new industry from another successful Chattanooga start-up: Bellhops Moving. 

"Stepping into this new role as project manager assistant couldn't be a better fit," he said. "With so many ongoing projects and balls to juggle, I get to make sure our team isn't just meeting, but exceeding client expectations."
