A Bittersweet Moment

When I joined Thornley Fallis Communications in 2008, I quickly found myself paired-up with an account coordinator as we began to build-out our social media practice. Over the following months we worked closely together on pretty much every project I touched, and despite both being extremely stubborn we found we worked well together. I also watched (with a little pride) as she learned and grew, and in September last year I had the pleasure of promoting her to “consultant.”

Unfortunately for us, all good things come to an end. Yesterday was Kerri Birtch‘s last day at Thornley Fallis. She leaves behind her a hole that will be challenging to fill as she’s been a central part of our team over the last 18 months. I’m sad to see Kerri go, but proud of her for what she’s become and I wish her the best possible success in her new role (which I’ll let her announce in her own time).

On a related note, I’m pleased to announce (although she beat me to ittwice!) that Jessica Muhlbier will be joining our social media team as an account coordinator next week. While Kerri has left big shoes to fill, Jess has some great experience under her belt and her own distinct set of strengths. We think she’ll be a fantastic addition to the TFC/76design, and look forward to welcoming her to our team on Monday.

  • What an elegant, wonderful endorsement of your colleague. It’s so “you.”

  • Thanks for the kind words Dave. It’s been a pleasure and thanks again for everything. Hopefully Jessica gives you the same kind of ammunition for your ‘OverHeard’ Tweets. 🙂
