Spectruss, a full-service creative agency based in Chattanooga, is growing their sales department with two additional account manager hires, Brandon Curtis and Preslie Gifford.

Mr. Curtis brings eight years of experience focused on growing businesses through relationship building and marketing solutions. He is from Chattanooga and studied Recording Arts at Middle Tennessee State University outside of Nashville. 

After years of working in the studio and on tour with several bands, he decided he wanted to settle down and make a big career change. When it comes to marketing a business, Mr. Curtis said he believes that there is no “one size fits all” solution. 

When he is not working in the office, Mr. Curtis enjoys watching old episodes of Shark Tank, hiking with his two dogs (both rescues), getting his hands dirty with various woodworking crafts or playing soccer with his son. 

Ms. Gifford is a soon to be graduate of Auburn University with a degree in public relations and marketing. While in college, she interned with the former legend Coach Pat Dye where she worked as a social media intern for the Coach Pat Dye Radio Show which aired on Auburn radio. 

Her love for marketing started when her dad invented a hunting product called Hitch-N-Skeet. Trying to get Hitch-N-Skeet in stores, she reached out to major companies like Cabelas and Bass Pro Shops. 

In her free time, she is starting a hair and makeup business with her college roommate called Capre Beauty. So, most all of her weekends are spent beautifying women or traveling to new cities. She also loves meeting new people and trying new restaurants.
