Tamara McLaughlin, a former account executive with The Woodbine Agency and Cassels Caywood Love in Winston-Salem, is the new marketing and communications manager for the Piedmont Triad Entrepreneurial Network.

McLaughlin is a 1999 graduate of Wake Forest University with a degree in English. At the agencies, she worked with a variety of clients from non-profit organizations to Fortune 500 firms.

“Tamara was chosen for this important role because of the depth and breath of her experience in managing branding communications projects, as well as her creativity, relationship-building skills and her ability to help entrepreneurs with their marketing and communications direction,” said Jon Obermeyer, chief executive officer of PTEN. “She is a tremendous asset to our staff.”
