Staff Spotlight: Lindsay Romanelli

Lindsay Romanelli

Hailing from New Jersey, Lindsay Romanelli joined the Katana team last year after dedicating more than two years of agency experience on the East Coast. She originally commenced her career as social media strategist, but quickly shifted her focus to paid media, gaining recognition from her previous agency as one of the most successful paid search managers. She has built numerous high performing campaigns for clients both large and small in the direct response and higher education lead generation space.

Around the office, Lindsay is notorious for generously sharing her daily container of bell peppers and her partiality towards 60’s and 80’s rock bands. In this installment of Katana’s Staff Spotlight, get to know Lindsay!
