Shannon Durkin

I love being part of a team that builds things to impact lives. Everyone brings their own touch to each project, and everyday is new and exciting as a result.

With a blended background in media analysis, market trend research, and strategy creation, Shannon brings a host of marketing skills and experience to her role as a Project Manager. Shannon currently manages campaigns for government agencies and nonprofits, and she has also implemented campaigns for major corporate brands (including several that had a presence at the 2013 Super Bowl and NCAA Final Four) in her years before CHIEF. She serves as the client’s main point of contact throughout the entire project lifecycle, ensuring that CHIEF's final products are delivered on time, on budget, and with impeccable quality. Shannon can often be seen in the office wearing her pink Beats By Dre headphones that help her complete superhuman amounts of work.

Shannon received her MA in Advertising from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, and her BS in Economics and Business Administration from the University of Mary Washington.
