Marketing and Project Manager
Jamie is HD MADE’s Marketing and Project Manager and social media fanatic. She is a graduate of General Electric’s Commercial Leadership Program, and went on to handle partnerships and product launches for the electric vehicle team within GE’s Industrial Solutions business. Jamie successfully launched 3 products in less than one year in both Europe and North America. She was also responsible for leading the business’s first product-specific social media efforts. When she’s not keeping the team on time, on deadline and tweeting, she’s running up and down the east river. Usually in search of the best mac & cheese.
Our master of design, Kevin, is a recent graduate from F.I.T. who began as an intern at HD MADE. Kevin's design aesthetic derives from his experience with web design, interactive design, illustration, and was sharpened by growing up in New York. Kevin is a graphic designer by day, and asleep by night; unless it’s the weekend, in which case he's probably making awesome music.
