Erik SchwenkeProject Manager

Who am I?

I am the Project Manager at Seafoam Media. In my role, I manage all communications for our web development projects, as well as our ongoing marketing clients. I act as the liaison between our team and our clients to help direct the overall strategy of projects, to look at things from a technical and big-picture perspective, and to make sure we are delivering the highest quality work every time.

My Mission at Seafoam:

My mission is to create and communicate effective strategies that help turn information into action. When everyone is in the same rhythm, we are empowered to work faster and smarter to achieve our clients’ goals.

Why I Love What I Do:

I love that I get to be closely involved in making decisions that translate into real-world results for our clients. I also love being able to help translate technical ideas into practical concepts, along with having the opportunity to oversee projects from start to finish.

My Qualifications and Experience:

I have been a Project Manager with Seafoam Media for three years, simultaneously managing one-time, web based projects, as well as ongoing optimization projects, to provide a wide range of marketing services for our clients.

I have been fortunate in that beyond development projects, I’ve performed tasks relating to data analytics, SEO, copywriting and social media, thus giving me a broad range of experience.

Previously, I came from a writing background, having worked as a Social Media Director to build a social media presence for the St. Louis-based Lou Fusz Automotive Group. I also spent some time in the public relations world at FleishmanHillard.

Why I Love Working at Seafoam:

One of the best parts of working at Seafoam Media is that I am always able to learn and add to my skill set — and as someone who loves knowledge, this is a welcome challenge! I’m also surrounded by a wonderful team of highly skilled colleagues who help our agency achieve positive results!

In my freetime…

I sing in a part-time cover band, and I am perpetually on a quest to find new and interesting craft beers to try. I also love watching intentionally bad movies, training for longer and longer races (I recently did a 15K!) and enjoying board game nights.
