Wire Stone Elevates Morgan, Merchant to Key Management Roles

SEATTLE, WA and CHICAGO, IL — (May 13, 2014) — Wire Stone, LLC is rising to the demands of the evolving digital marketing landscape with the promotion of two strategic, creative thinkers.

Lianne Morgan is the new managing director for Wire Stone’s Seattle office. Morgan has delivered B2B and B2C solutions and services to Microsoft, eBay, Apple and Hewlett-Packard, among many others. As a 25-year marketing veteran, she has held leadership positions on both the client and agency side including the role of CEO and part owner of the Webby-nominated digital agency 4th Revolution. Wire Stone acquired 4th Revolution in 2002.

“Lianne’s leadership, vision and passion reflect why Wire Stone is a trusted partner to many of the world’s leading brands,” said Wire Stone CEO Dan Lynch. “She has been an integral part of our success from the beginning and is directly responsible for the ongoing growth of our business with Microsoft. As managing director of our Seattle office, Lianne will continue to extend Wire Stone’s reach and impact throughout the Pacific Northwest.”

Building on its efforts to align for continued strategic growth, Wire Stone has also promoted Amy Merchant to the role of client partner in its Chicago office. Merchant has more than 14 years of experience in marketing management, working with brands ranging from global B2B to national non-profits. She has been with Wire Stone since 2008 and offers strategic partnership to the company’s Midwest clients, ensuring solutions are aligned with clients’ business goals.

“Amy is a tireless client advocate with a distinct passion for creating and strengthening the connections between brand and audience,” added Lynch. “As she leads and elevates our partnership with ConAgra Foods Inc., her strategic marketing depth and industry-spanning experience will provide unique insights and perspective to the world’s most notable food brands.”

Morgan’s and Merchant’s promotions are effective immediately. They will continue to work out of the Seattle and Chicago offices, respectively.
