Counsel Creative, a creative agency based in the Chattanooga area, announced the selection of Elizabeth Bounds as its new project manager, effective Aug. 5. Ms. Bounds will be the first in this role for the agency.
As project manager, Ms. Bounds will assess and implement project management strategies and software, act as a liaison between the creative team and clients as well as keep projects on a timeline and within budget-amongst other things.
“I’m blessed to be joining an agency that is trying to break the norm with regards to client interaction in the creative world,'' said Ms. Bounds. “The level of care this group has for their clientele shows in their day-to-day interactions and came across so clearly at our initial point of contact. Joining a team of people that listen well was important to me.”
Ms. Bounds brings with her five years of experience in the design and management field with a background in interior design, project and product management and marketing. She graduated with a Bachelors of Science from Mississippi State University in 2014. Her prior work experiences include assisting in the launch of a start-up in the tourism industry in Chattanooga and then managing that start-up for the past two years, interior design work for residential companies and brand/online presence management.
“We are fortunate to have experienced steady growth in the last year at Counsel Creative,” said co-founder and COO of the agency, Rachel Morgan. “While the growth has only fueled our passion for others, we never want to outpace our ability to serve at the highest level. The opportunities to expand our creative output have allowed us to carefully and methodically build a team that rallies around doing good. Elizabeth not only exudes a heartbeat for others, she has displayed the makings of a leader since day one and we couldn’t have found a better fit for this role.”
