Marketing Maven Consulting, a brand management and design firm based in Great Bend, announced the addition of a new employee. Ashlie Thomas, a Kansas native, started with the company in May as a communications and project assistant.
“As our client base, our services, and our project list continues to grow, we realized the need for another staff person who can handle the administrative, research, and reporting functions that our clients depend on,” said Rachel Mawhirter, Marketing Maven’s owner and founder. “Ashlie is organized, efficient, and detail-oriented and we are confident she’ll be a huge asset to our team and to the companies we work with.”
Thomas grew up and graduated from Ellinwood in 2011 before graduating from Barton Community College in 2013 with an Associate in Applied Science in Business Management and Leadership.
“In my short 30 years of life, I already have over a decade worth of experience in the field of business,” Thomas said. “I am very excited to expand my knowledge and skillset with the Marketing Maven team and transition into more of a creative roll.”
Thomas will be handling the firm’s administrative tasks, metrics reporting, writing assignments and other special projects. She will also assist with photography and photo editing, social media and other marketing functions that serve the firm’s growing list of clients.
Outside of work, Thomas stays active volunteering for Central Kansas Christian Academy, coaching CKCA’s basketball teams, serving at First Southern Baptist Church, and attending her children’s sports and activities. She also enjoys going to the lake, spending time with family, and tackling lots of home improvement projects. Ashlie lives in Great Bend, Kansas with her husband Ethan and two children, Aiden and Oaklyn.
