The BIGteam keeps getting bigger! We’re excited to have our new account coordinator, Anna McGeady, join us.
Name: Anna McGeady
Hometown: Duxbury, MA
Tell us a little bit about your background:
I grew up in a little town on the South Shore, then went to school at the College of the Holy Cross, a small liberal arts college in Worcester. I tend to be drawn towards tight-knit communities; I like the depth of camaraderie they offer. That being said, I also love the variability and anonymity that comes with living in an unfamiliar place. I spent a year abroad studying English Literature at the University of Oxford, England, and it was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I’m always looking to try something new!
What attracted you to BIGfish?
Other than the size, I would say the clients they work with. BIGfish supports some fantastic innovators in all sorts of fields, from cleantech to security. Working at an agency that has a kind of altruistic spirit is really important to me.
Describe yourself in 5 words:
Never been good at these.
What’s your favorite food?
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! When I’m in the mood for a PB&J, nothing can beat it. I’m a total kid at heart
What are you most excited to experience now that you’re living in Boston?
I’d say getting to know the city more and happening upon all the unexpected places you only find after living somewhere permanently.
What do you hope to accomplish in your new role?
I think tech PR is a really exciting field both on the client side and the agency side. Clients are constantly emerging and creating some remarkable technology, and agencies are constantly leveraging technology to increase public engagement. There have been some legendary PR campaigns that weren’t even conceivable in the past because the technology simply wasn’t there. It’s exciting to consider how much uncharted ground there is in tech PR, and I’m most looking forward to working with BIGfish to be the pioneers of these emerging trends.
Anything else we should know about you?
I always have a song stuck in my head, so I will take this opportunity to apologize in advance if I ever get an annoying ‘80s tune stuck in yours It’s true what they say, “at any moment, the urge to sing ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ is just a whim away, a whim away, a whim away…”
