GWL Advertising is excited to announce that we have recently acquired two new Digital and Account Executive team members, Lauren Bradbury and Ryan Williams. Lauren has joined GWL as an Account Executive and Ryan has signed on as the new Director of Digital Media.
Lauren Bradbury was born and raised in Fort Smith, Arkansas. She attended the University of Arkansas, so it goes without saying that everyone in Lauren’s home is a huge Razorback fan. Lauren and her husband Ralph have two children, Lillian (5) and Robert (2). When Lauren and Ralph aren’t busy with work, they enjoy spending their free time with friends and family. Lauren says, “I love a good patio, glass of red wine and any beach! I also play Fantasy Golf with my dad and brothers!”
Prior to GWL, Lauren worked as a Senior Account Executive on various accounts in the banking, healthcare, cybersecurity and tourism industries. We are very excited for Lauren to bring her talents and eye for detail to the GWL accounts team.
Ryan Williams was born and raised in Hot Springs, Arkansas. He still resides in Hot Springs with his wife Markie and their 10-month-old son, Lawson. On the topic of his son, Ryan says, My wife and I are still trying to cope with how fast he’s growing!” When he’s not spending time with family, you can find Ryan working on national and local digital marketing clients. Ryan is a graduate of Arkansas Tech University, but like most employees at GWL, he’s an avid Razorback fan.
In his spare time, Ryan enjoys reading, listening to/playing music, and spending time with friends and family. “Music has always been a huge influence in my life, and I’ll never turn down an opportunity to discover new music, make music recommendations, or give them in return. I’ve played drums, guitar, and other instruments off and on my whole life,” says Ryan.
“I believe in doing what’s right, lending a hand whenever I’m able, and being a better person, husband, and father each and every day. I couldn’t be more thrilled to work out of Little Rock with GWL and have a positive impact on our community and for our clients.” We are very pleased to have Ryan bring his leadership, experience, and fresh outlook to the GWL digital team.
