January 17,2018

SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY – Fingerpaint, a full-service marketing agency with offices in Arizona, Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio, has added Gabriella DeBlase to its People & Culture team. DeBlase will be based in the agency’s Saratoga Springs, New York, office.

DeBlase joins Fingerpaint most recently from Liaison International, where she was the sole human resources representative for an office of over 300 employees. DeBlase partnered with employees for internal processes at all stages, including on-boarding, performance evaluation, monthly head count and key performance index reports, and separation procedures.

DeBlase advanced her client service expertise as the office manager for Capital Region OBGYN in Latham, New York. In addition to coordinating the day-to-day operations of a staff of up to 15 employees, she recruited and set up new employees, ensured patient satisfaction, and organized physician schedules. Her time there helped DeBlase hone her skills in handling sensitive materials in a high-traffic office setting.

DeBlase earned her Bachelor of Arts from Siena College in Loudonville, New York.

“Gabby’s dedication to supporting employees is proven in her commitment to ensuring all internal processes run smoothly,” said Bill McEllen, who runs Fingerpaint’s Saratoga Springs office. “Her professionalism and knack for organization will help keep Fingerpaint a well-oiled machine as we continue to grow.”
