August 1, 2022 (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) — Lightburn, an award-winning digital agency located in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward, is excited to welcome six new faces to its team of digital professionals.
This increased bench strength is a direct reflection of clients’ growing digital needs and allows the agency to expand its strategic, creative, and technical support offerings. In a time when many companies are experiencing rapid employee turnover, these new faces—including the agency’s first out-of-state hire—represent a period of remarkable growth for Lightburn.
“More than 20% of our current team was not here on January 1st,” said Scott Wintheiser, co-founder of Lightburn. “That's a pretty big percentage, certainly the fastest we've ever grown in six months.”
New Lightburn team members include:
- Kevin Topel, Front End Developer
- Jenna Pepitone, Project Coordinator
- Jesse Humphries, Front End Web Developer
- Kate Christiansen, Project Coordinator
- Lauren Splitt, Digital Marketing Analyst
- Andrew Lueneburg, Client Strategist
For 24 years, Lightburn has been dedicated to intentional and responsible company growth for the benefit of both its clients and its team members. Slow and steady hiring has created opportunities for employees of all levels to work on high-impact websites and campaigns, but it’s also contributed to fewer account-management complexities and higher-quality products for agency clients.
“One of the things that continues to make our agency so amazing is that we have such a supportive community. Four of the new hires were introduced to Lightburn by current employees, friends of clients, or industry peers,” said Nora Lahl, partner and director of client engagement. “Clients who love our work and individuals aware of Lightburn’s reputation are offering high praise and thinking of us when their colleagues are looking for new opportunities. It’s gratifying.”
