“Katie is a world-class operator and, in reality, has been operating at a general manager level for some time,” says Gurney. “The agency has had a period of exceptional growth and Katie has been a big part of that success, we are incredibly proud of her.”
Walton says while not a lot changes, she’s very excited to continue her management career and take on more responsibility for its future direction.
The promotion is effective immediately.
