Portsmouth, NH (August 12, 2007) – The newest addition to the team at Bresette + Company is Kaitlyn Grant, who recently assumed the role of Senior Associate. After a brief stint as an intern at the company, Bresette quickly recognized Kaitlyn’s potential and recruited her, adding to their team of top-notch talent.
In her new role at Bresette, Kaitlyn works closely with President Josh Bresette to enhance Bresette’s strategic planning, public relations and business consulting services. A 2007 graduate of the University of New Hampshire’s Whittemore School of Business and Economics with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an option in Marketing, Kaitlyn’s extensive college studies at UNH have helped her transition easily to her role at Bresette and to the world of marketing and consulting.
It was at the University of New Hampshire where Kaitlyn got her first real taste of the marketing world in her senior capstone marketing class. She and 24 colleagues were challenged with developing a full marketing and advertising campaign for Bausch & Lomb to generate interest in eye surgery among college students. The class became its own agency with different departments working together to promote LASIK surgery at Clear Advantage Vision Correction Center in Portsmouth to their peers. Kaitlyn was deemed head of the Marketing Research Department, a member of the advertising department, and a presenter. UNH competed with 5 other colleges across the country and was one of two schools selected to present their campaign to Bausch & Lomb executives in Rochester, NY. Kaitlyn and her class won first place in the competition for their campaign and were awarded $3,000 dollars for the marketing department at UNH, and a call from Dennis O’Brien, VP and General Manager of Bausch & Lomb.
“I’m so excited to be part of the team at Bresette + Company because it is a place where I can take what I learned in college and actually apply it to real-world experiences. At Bresette, I have the unique opportunity to work on a variety of projects and clients as I determine where I’d like to focus my talent. I am fortunate to work with an extremely talented group of people, who encourage me to continue to grow and further my knowledge of marketing and consulting.” Says Kaitlyn who joined the company in June.
