So you and I walk into an elevator…

Advertising. Public Relations. Branding. Creative. Marketing. I’ve done, and continue to do it all. My name is Becky O’Brien Linahon, and I’ve dedicated my life to all things communication. Starting out in creative, I graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a BFA in Advertising Art Direction in just three years and with only a few gray hairs might I add, just kidding, I think. Eager to get into the marketing world, I obtained a position as the sole creative within a small marketing department at a start-up, FirstLook and MAX Systems. A couple role changes, a rebrand (now MAXDigital), and a new office later, we have since been voted the #1 Fastest Growing Software Company by Inc 500. Throughout all this I decided it was time to expand my education and return to DePaul University to earn my MA in Advertising and Public Relations. And here I find myself, a young, motivated professional with strategic and tactical marketing competencies ready to tackle the next business challenge.
