Eileen brings more than ten years of experience in direct response marketing to Lautman. In her role as Production Assistant, she supports senior production staff and serves as a resource for the entire production team. She assists with the implementation of fundraising campaigns for nonprofit organizations by managing the steps necessary to execute cost-effective, high quality, on-time direct response fundraising efforts. This includes creating production schedules, writing requests for quotes (RFQs), preparing production grids, awarding jobs and issuing POs, trafficking artwork/proofs, reconciling invoices and creating/maintaining cost sheets.
Eileen began her career in direct response as an Account Coordinator working with the Arthritis Foundation team at Merkle. Wanting to learn more about the industry, she moved over to the Production and learned the daily ins and outs of direct mail production. Within a few months she was promoted to Production Billing Manager where she managed the production billing for three offices and worked closely with accounting. From there, she moved on to other agencies and worked on clients such as Paralyzed Veterans of America, Pioneers, MS and ACS.
Eileen’s passion for nonprofits has driven her to participate in the Arthritis Walk and Relay for Life and serve as a Wish Granter with Make A Wish. She is also an avid sports fan.
