We've, expanded our strategic team with the addition of an award-winning local entrepreneur, Kristen Kogl, as Account Coordinator.
Kristen graduated in December 2016 with distinction and honors from Washburn University’s School of Business, with dual degrees in Marketing and Entrepreneurship & Innovation.
“Kristen has a strong desire for learning, creating and helping others which makes her a great fit for the entrepreneurial and strategic thinking we do at MB Piland,” said Martha Bartlett Piland, president + CEO.
During her time as a student, she began developing a startup business of her own. Kristen competed in Washburn University’s 2015 Business Pitch Competition and placed first in the final round. She was awarded investment capital to continue building her prototype and eventually launch her company, EZ Floss.
Kristen will assist agency staff with client projects, administrative and business support, promotional support, social media and marketing research.
“I am thrilled to be working for such a prestigious agency, right here in Topeka. It is an exciting position that will allow me to learn and grow with inspirational business women,” said Kristen.
