We are excited to announce that Ashley Whitley will be joining Trig as our first project manager. In a company that prefers change to standard procedures and ambiguity to routine processes, Ashley has the challenge of keeping track of each divergent path we take with our clients and making sure we maintain our commitments to quality, budget, and schedule.
Ashley brings a wealth of creative project management experience to the Trig team, notably having served as Creative Project Manager for the CapStrat communications agency in Raleigh, NC where she helped formalize their project management process. Prior to CapStrat, she worked as Customer and Sales Support Manager at Schou USA, a manufacturer of outdoor furniture. She also served as Global Account Manager at Cadmus Communications, a content publishing services and packaging solutions provider.
Ashley earned her undergraduate degree in Graphics Communications in 2004 from Clemson University. As a leading training program for professionals in the printing, packaging, publishing, and imaging industries, Ashley has a strong understanding of both the print manufacturing and marketing fields. During her studies, she had internships at Vertis Communications and Schawk.
"Ashley joins the Trig team at the perfect time." says Ty Hagler, the company principal and founder. "Her expertise in project management and confidence as a leader has gracefully challenged us to commit to standard processes that help us keep track of our critical numbers. She has patiently picked up the project management responsibilities that had otherwise been addressed through ad hoc efforts. Her steady guidance and persistent attention to detail will be critical to Trig's continued commitment to excellence as we reach our next phase of growth."
