SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY – Fingerpaint, a full-service marketing agency with offices in Arizona, Pennsylvania, New York, and Ohio, has added Jacob Tapio to its account service team. Tapio will be based in the agency’s Saratoga Springs, New York, office.
Tapio joins the Fingerpaint team ready to channel his public relations and social media knowledge into account service. Tapio earned his Bachelor of Science in public relations from the State University of Plattsburgh while simultaneously bolstering his experience during several internships.
During his public relations internship at Cardinal, his efforts increased the following year’s enrollment through both traditional and digital forms of social media. Most recently, his internship for the Town of Plattsburgh allowed him to create and carry out social media strategies and tactics to increase resident involvement, economic development, and tourism. His responsibilities included managing two social media platforms, educating local businesses on Web visibility, and creating an array of widely distributed press releases.
“Jacob demonstrates expertise in social media content development, which he complements with communications skills,” said Bill McEllen, who runs the Saratoga Springs office. “His fresh perspective will ensure that our teams are always employing creative and innovative campaigns.”
