New Hire Spotlight: Dawn Billinger, Director of Media

Team frank

The frank Agency is excited to welcome Dawn Billinger as our new Director of Media! To help us get to know Dawn better, we asked her a few questions about herself, her career aspirations – and a few fun personal things, too!

How did you choose (or end up in) the career you currently have? I always felt that anything mass media was a great way to bring people together and to start a conversation. I like the idea of providing solutions for a need.

What initially drew you to The frank Agency? So many things, but a sense of closeness and overall happiness struck hard. I also love Paul Newman, so the picture from The Hustler was a selling point. I want that in my basement.

What are you looking forward to in your position at The frank Agency? The ability to work with display and video to complement our branding and DR buys. I am excited to work closely with clients again as well!

If you could choose anyone in the world to have dinner with, who would it be and why? My grandparents. My dad’s parents were both deceased before I was born and my mom’s parents have been gone for several years now. I took for granted their stories of growing up and the stories of their grandparents. I would love to hear them again and record them this time!

Desert Island Top Five: If you were stuck on an island, what are the top five movies or books you would want to bring?

  • Gone with the Wind
  • Godfather 1 & 2
  • Ferris Beuller’s Day Off
  • Mary Poppins
  • Ocean’s 11

Current top five playlist: It is amazing how music can transform a mood! I pretty much like all music but in the past couple of days I have listened to the American Graffiti soundtrack, The Weeknd, Otis Redding, Queen and The Beatles.

Ultimate vacation destination? My husband and I plan on celebrating our next milestone in Hawaii. I’ve wanted to visit Europe/Mediterranean countries and all they have to offer. Someday…..

If you won the lottery, what would you do with the winnings? The responsible side would pay off debt, invest, donate and build a sanctuary for dogs that do not have a place to call home or have been abused in the past and need to be rehabilitated. After throwing an epic party with 500 of our closest friends, we would travel and pick up random strangers’ tabs and encourage them to pay it forward.

Last thing that really made you laugh? James Corden’s carpool karaoke with Adele. The Adele. Hilarious!

Dawn’s enthusiasm and expertise make her a great fit for The frank Agency. Welcome aboard, Dawn! We are excited you have joined us.
