We’re incredibly excited to introduce you all to our newest Account Manager, Julie Brothen! Julie joins the Christiansen Creative team with decades of project management experience for clients in both the Minneapolis/St. Paul and New York City areas. Her impressive communication and organizational skills and appreciation of creativity and collaboration make her a natural fit for our studio.
Julie spent her early years growing up in both Cottage and Duluth, Minnesota. As a young adult with a spirit of a true explorer, she ventured out to New York with a few hundred dollars and a suitcase in hand. A decade later she built an impressive work history based on relationships and hard work with her last company awarding her the title of VP of Finance and Administration.
When Julie returned to Minnesota she began working within the creative industry as a photo producer, managing her clients' projects, budgets, timelines and more. As her career grew, so did her relationships and client base, as well as the type of projects she worked on with her clients.
“Julie has been our trusted partner for nearly a decade and I knew she’d be a perfect fit for both our team and clients,” said CC President and Creative Director Tricia Christiansen. “She’s worked with us on some of our biggest projects for Marvin Windows and Doors, 3M, Cancer Center of Western Wisconsin and CentraCare Health. Her understanding of our work and dedication to doing our best will be fantastic assets for the studio.”
When Julie is not focused on her clients, she enjoys traveling to places like Brazil, England, France and India in her time off. Julie also loves spending time with her family including her talented husband, photographer John Mowers. She is also passionate about volunteering through Habitat for Humanity.
“I’m really excited to be a part of the team at Christiansen Creative,” Julie said. “Culture has always been important to me. I really appreciate how much the team respects one another and is so focused on giving back to the community. It feels like it was meant to be!”
Our team was thrilled to share the news of Julie joining the team with some core clients at our CC15 event. We’re thrilled to share the news with everyone now that she’s officially on board.
