Carmichael Lynch, one of the nation's leading creative advertising agencies, today announced Stacy Janicki as its director of account management, senior partner, effective July 30. She will also be a member of the agency's senior-management team. Previously, Janicki was the director of account management at Colle+McVoy, where she served as a key leader across a portfolio of brands and was critical in the agency’s growth initiatives.
Janicki is charged with providing inspired leadership to the account management department, integrating client strategies across multiple disciplines and setting the standard for long-standing, successful client relationships. She also will be a core member of the new business team, reporting to Carmichael Lynch CEO Mike Lescarbeau.
“Stacy is a high-achiever who inspires everyone around her to perform at their very best,” Lescarbeau said. “Her passion for success and outstanding leadership traits will help us attract and retain the very best clients and the brightest talent in advertising. Stacy is a smart, strategic thinker and a real champion for great creative work.”
Janicki began her career in advertising more than 16 years ago at Campbell Mithun Esty, where she served as an account executive. She then became a management supervisor at Martin-Williams before returning to Campbell Mithun. During her time at these agencies, she represented A-list brands including General Mills, Anheuser-Busch, Microsoft, 3M, Bruegger’s Bagels and Verizon Cellular. In 2007, Janicki moved to Colle+McVoy as director of account management, where her ability to lead left-brain talents with a right-brain strategy drove substantial growth for the agency. During her five-year stint, Janicki helped strengthen and reinvent brands such as Caribou Coffee, the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation, ESPN, Old Navy and Land O’Lakes Dairy Foods.
“Carmichael Lynch is known for building some of the most beloved and iconic brands in the world," Janicki said. "I’m excited to join a team of highly creative people who congregate everyday with the shared purpose of inspiring clients, consumers, pop culture and, of course, each other.”
Janicki is a high achiever in everything she does. She played collegiate hoops for the University of Notre Dame and was a former prep All-American and Minnesota’s 1992 "Ms. Basketball." In 2011, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal recognized Janicki as one of its "Women to Watch" in business.
