BRIAN CONAGHAN, Senior Marketing Consultant
Prior to Valpak, I was the Sales Promotions Manager for WPLJ radio in NYC. Before that, I spent 3 years as the Promotions Director for CBS Radio Pittsburgh. One of the last things I worked on in my time at WPLJ was a cross-promotion between the radio station and Valpak to promote “PLJ Family Fun Night @ Rye Playland.” The response to the program was overwhelming. From that, I was able to see the awesome reach of the product and how dedicated the consumer base were to responding to great offers / promotions. It made the jump from radio to direct mail an easy decision. In college, I worked on layouts for newspapers to make pages “more readable” for consumers by working on content design & eye-catching headlines. I’m a self-taught, weekend warrior, graphic designer. A great program ALWAYS starts with great design. I have a Bachelors Degree in Journalism & Mass Communication from St. Bonaventure University. I’m a Dogfather to 2 shih-tzus, Duncan & Reilly, they basically run our house! In my “free” time, my wife & I hit a pretty intense concert schedule (we hit 17 shows in the Summer of 2016).
