Stacey Thomas, Advertising Account Manager

Stacey Thomas grew up in North Stafford and settled in Spotsylvania, Virginia where she married her high school sweetheart and raised her family. She found her passion for advertising early on as the Advertising Manager of her high school paper. She started her career at Mast Advertising as an Account Representative for the yellow pages, followed by 14 years at Cox Communications as the Marketing Specialist. In 2011, she joined The Free Lance-Star as the Advertising Design Manager where she gained extensive knowledge of the production aspects of print and digital advertising. All while raising a family and gaining her Associates degree from Germanna Community College and Bachelors degree from University of Mary Washington.

“One of my personal passions is to witness a small business grow and be successful. I love to see the guts it takes to risk it all to bring their idea to a community. The other is my strong belief in advertising. Sadly, I have seen some businesses fail, while offering great products and services, they just did not have the right advertising campaign executed. In 1990, I sold yellow page advertisement because it worked. Today, you’ve got to be a front runner in Google. Let’s face it, if you personally want something the majority of us “Google it.” That’s why I’ve decided to join the team at Endrizzi Advertising Agency! They offer every service for a business to be successful and they are a certified Google Partner! As an Advertising Account Manager, I’m able to use my passion to help a business grow with Google Adwords, social media and online reputation management, plus advise them on the right media for their target audience. It is such an exciting time to advertise in the digital age!”
