We love our team here at The A Group and are always excited when we get to add amazing new people to the bunch! Our team is growing fast, and some of the first two you’ll likely meet will be the newest additions to our client service and strategic teams – Kristin Carver and Chase Cleckner.

Kristin Carver joins The A Group team as an account manager, helping to coordinate the implementation of in-depth marketing plans and working directly with clients to help them achieve their goals. Kristin most recently worked as an associate publicist at Choice Media & Communications, providing support for projects such as the launch of New York Times bestsellers Hands Free Mama, Wrestling For My Life and For The Right Reasons; the launch of Quollective, an iPhone app for capturing and styling quotes, and ongoing work for country music legend Naomi Judd.

A graduate of the University of Tennessee, Kristin is a member of a number of local organizations including Social Media Club Nashville, Nashville PRSA and the Eating Disorder Coalition of Tennessee. She is excited to join The A Group team, saying: “It’s a privilege to be surrounded by folks who are carving out and defining the MarTech space, not only in Nashville, but around the world. I’m honored and excited to work alongside this team and work with clients who are making a difference and impact across the globe.”

Chase Cleckner also started with The A Group this month, coming on board as a junior strategist. Chase is also a graduate of the University of Tennessee, where while maintaining a full course load, he started two businesses and earned a University of Tennessee Chancellor’s Citation Award for Extraordinary Professional Promise in Communication and Information. 

Chase specializes in marketing automation and integrated campaigns, continually developing and implementing marketing strategies, including social media, SEO, and email marketing, and fully integrating efforts with content strategy. Naturally, he also spends a great deal of time analyzing results and planning improvements for the future to work towards goals. As a junior strategist, Cleckner will help develop integrated marketing campaigns for The A Group’s diverse client base.

“I am extremely excited about the opportunity to open up the marketing automation world to all of our clients,” said Cleckner. “But in addition, I am really excited about the team here at The A Group. We have a very solid group of people who are not only great at what they do, but are passionate as well.”

We’re excited to have Kristin and Chase here and can’t wait to see the way their unique expertise benefits our clients. Please join us in welcoming them to the team!
