Kre8 Media promotes Eureka Vanterpool to senior vice president, operations

(July 24, 2015) Kre8 Media, a leading DRTV, Digital Media, and Brand Advertising agency, has promoted longtime employee Eureka Vanterpool to the new position of Senior Vice President, Operations. The announcement was made by T. Lee Cutler, Founder/CEO, Kre8 Media.

In her new position, Vanterpool, who had been Director of Client Services, will spearhead a variety of executive duties covering the areas of operations, human resources, information systems, traffic, new business coordination and agency promotion and communications. Vanterpool first joined Kre8 Media in Winter Park, Florida, in 2010 as Director of Client Services and worked for five years to build and maintain close partnerships with senior level targeted clients.

"Eureka's talent, experience and people skills have earned her this well-deserved promotion," said Cutler. "Over the years, she has truly gained the respect of her peers through her solution-focused attitude, team-oriented spirit, and her extensive experience with big accounts. I am delighted to be announcing her promotion today."

Adds Vanterpool, "Every client's strategy is unique, but my focus has always been the same. I come to the office every day with the singular goal of maximizing sales and leads for my clients -- period. I would describe my leadership style as very hands-on, in both day-to-day operations as well as the big picture."

Vanterpool began her general advertising industry career in 1997 as a Media Buyer at Dewitt Media in New York City. In 2003, she made the transition to the Direct Response industry when she began to work as a Media Buyer for Integrated Media Solutions (NYC.) She then went on to Zenith Direct, also in NYC, as a Media Buyer, where she was soon promoted to Account Services.

Vanterpool's client list with Kre8 Media has included a host of Fortune 500 Companies and Direct Response media success stories including Jenny Craig, Merck, Abbott Labs, Bosley, The Cancer Treatment Center of America, Connect America, Premier Care Bathing, KEL, and Woodbury Health Products.
