LaBreche expands team with addition of three employees

LaBreche, a unified marketing agency, today announced the expansion of its team with the addition of three employees. Karen Schultz joins LaBreche as business development manager. Jeff Neidt and Siri Thompson have been added to the content team.

Business development manager Karen Schultz comes to LaBreche from Energy Resources, where she worked as the senior marketing and community outreach manager. With 10 years’ experience in the marketing and communications fields, Schultz will be tasked with developing new business opportunities in the firm’s sweet spot of business-to-business marketing for healthcare and manufacturing companies. Schultz earned her Master of Arts degree in strategic communication from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
As manager of written content, Jeff Neidt has been hired to lead the implementation of content marketing strategies for clients. Neidt comes to LaBreche after working at Supervalu as the assistant manager of marketing communications, where he worked with external agencies to ensure branding goals were met. A real word savant, Neidt has taught creative writing courses at The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis, as well as adult education centers and universities throughout Minnesota and Germany. Neidt earned two Bachelor of Arts degrees in English and political science from St. Olaf College, and is currently completing his graduate degree in English from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
Content specialist Siri Thompson joins LaBreche after working as an intern in the corporate and retail events department at Best Buy, where she led event planning and management efforts for the Best Buy Charity Classic. Her passion for figuring out how people interact with their environments led her to earn her Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology/anthropology with concentrations in management and family studies from St. Olaf College. Thompson will serve several of LaBreche’s key accounts, including Stryker, Capital Safety, Tastefully Simple, Computype, and MicroCare.
