WILMINGTON — Dan Walsh, a UNCW graduate, recently joined Proclaim Interactive as a search engine marketing specialist. Walsh will help amplify clients’ messages through search engine optimization and pay-per-click (PPC) advertising. He is Google AdWords certified, meaning he has the PPC expertise needed to help clients craft the most effective marketing strategies.

“We’re glad to have another Google AdWords certified marketer on our team,” said Spence Hackney, president of Proclaim Interactive. “Dan’s got an incredible ‘can-do’ attitude and a valuable background in digital marketing. I know he’s going to do awesome work for our clients.”

Originally from the Washington, D.C. area, Walsh moved to North Carolina five years ago to attend UNCW, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in communication. He completed two marketing internships, one with Blue Corona and the other with The Ad Agency, both located in D.C. and the surrounding areas. His internships focused on all aspects of digital marketing and graphic design.

“I love the Wilmington area,” he said. “Coming from D.C., I love the appeal of a smaller city. I’m looking forward to working with clients and helping them exceed their goals.”

In his spare time, Walsh enjoys golf, cooking, downhill longboarding and spending time with his pet sugar glider.

“When we bring on a new team member, their character is the most important thing that we consider. Our staff needs to live out the ‘story of the bell’ and put our clients’ welfare above every other concern,” said Spence Hackney, president of Proclaim Interactive. “Emily has proved repeatedly that she has this sort of character and I’m super grateful that she’s a Proclaimer!”

Originally from Peachtree City, Georgia, she has lived in Wilmington for 16 years. She earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing. She also has extensive experience in real estate development marketing.

“I enjoy both the scientific and creative aspects of marketing,” she said. “I enjoy exploring how these different facets complement each other to produce outstanding results for clients.”

In her spare time, she enjoys outdoor actives such as kayaking, running and spending time with her husband, Austin, and her daughter, Talie.
