Hunter Kenny

(919) 544-0086 x115
Account Manager

Background

Although she has lived in Raleigh, North Carolina her entire life, Hunter considers herself to be a cultural connoisseur. She is a citizen of the United States, Canada and New Zealand and has been traveling around the world since early childhood. Just as Thoreau suggests, Hunter aims to “live deep and suck out all the marrow of life” and is passionate about absorbing information about all people, places and things.

Valuing both communication and good showmanship, Hunter decided to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing from North Carolina State University. To satiate both her creative and cultural interests, she earned two Minor degrees; one in German and the other in Art & Design.

Throughout college she kept up with the latest social trends by working as Lead Brand Ambassador for the largest electronic music events conglomerate in the United States. In this position, she had the opportunity guide a large team of student representatives throughout the Research Triangle as they tackled strategic social media and guerrilla marketing campaigns for various events.

After graduating, Hunter directed her marketing knowledge towards building a non-profit apparel company that is dedicated to raising money for the CF Foundation. She continues to operate her apparel company to this day, as it serves as both a creative outlet, and positive contribution to society. Prior to joining the DesignHammer team, Hunter worked at an educational technology company and specialized in overseeing customer success for all international accounts.

In the office

As Account Manager, Hunter advocates for customer success by ensuring that the web-based tools developed and supported by our team meet the organizational needs of clients. Google Analytics certified, she has a variety of mediums at her disposal to measure performance against predefined targets, which will then be used to steer future engagements.

Hunter also manages client communications through DesignHammer’s many conduits, including company website, blog, social media, and email newsletter.

Eager to take on more projects and customer-facing work in the future, Hunter is best motivated by being told that “something cannot be done” and she looks forward to tackling any unique challenges faced by both DesignHammer and our clients head-on.

Out of the office

Away from her desk, Hunter enjoys exploring the world and meeting new people. With her sidekick (dog) Toki Wartooth by her side, she continues to roam around and seek out new adventures in her native city. If Hunter is not at a local music event or new restaurant in town, she is likely binge-watching the latest Netflix series and assuming the role of amateur film critic. Competitive and playful by nature, Hunter also stays entertained by playing video-games, board games and even friendly, pick-up soccer matches.
