Award honors women in leading creative roles from all 50 states
OMAHA, Nebraska (August 16, 2017) – Bailey Lauerman’s Senior Copywriter, Hannah Husman, was named to The Drum’s first-ever 50 Under 30 List. The Drum is a leading global media publication dedicated to showcasing the transformative effects that marketing can have on businesses.
The award honors women in leading creative roles from all 50 states. Husman was selected as the top female creative in Nebraska with the help of a judging panel, which included MullenLowe Los Angeles Executive Creative Director Margaret Keene, Colle McVoy Executive Creative Director Laura Fegley, Arnold Worldwide Chief Creative Officer Icaro Doria and Barker EVP-Creative Director Sandi Harari.
Husman was recognized for her passion and leadership, as well as her award-winning body of work for Panda Express, one of Bailey Lauerman’s largest clients. Some of her most notable work on the account includes penning the popular hashtag #TsoGood to introduce the brand’s popular General Tso’s chicken last year. Her creative work also influenced the brand’s Share Good Fortune campaign, in which the restaurant gave its fortune cookies a “bakeover,” swapping traditional fortunes with wishes of good fortune for others. Husman’s creative work has touched nearly every client in the agency, and she was recently promoted to Senior Copywriter in May.
“Hannah is an integral part of our creative team at Bailey Lauerman,” says Carter Weitz, chief creative officer. “Her ability to create big ideas, along with her consistent eye for detail have been instrumental in selling through work that connects with our clients and their customers. Her dedication to the creative process and pursuit of “what’s next” has made her a leader in the agency. We are thrilled to see her recognized alongside some very best creative talent across the country.”
Other honorees from the Midwest included creatives in marketing, advertising, tech, design, digital and media from The Integer Group, Fallon, Deloitte Digital, We Are Unlimited, Doner, VML, Cramer-Krasselt and MRM McCann. A Q&A with Husman will appear in the October issue of The Drum’s printed publication, and is currently available online. Finalists from other parts of the country will be released later this week.
