KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Dobies Healthcare Group, a healthcare-specialized marketing, branding and advertising firm, deepened its expertise with the addition of two very talented marketing professionals: Tara Grassie (client services) and Anne Bracker (creative services).
“Tara and Anne bring the right experience, skills and talents to deliver the seamless service and powerful results our clients expect and deserve,” said Thom Ludtke, Vice President of Client Services. “Together as a team, we will further enhance the unique blend of strategic thinking and creative communications that has been at the core of our company for 25 years and counting.”
As Client Services Manager, Tara Grassie works with clients and internal teams to ensure on-time, on-budget execution for all marketing, branding and advertising initiatives. Tara has worked in healthcare marketing since 2013. At Nueterra Capital, she excelled at developing and implementing strategies and tactics for public relations and integrated marketing campaigns.
As Creative Services Manager, Anne Bracker provides creative direction and manages design, development and production of marketing and advertising campaigns. Her extensive experience includes art direction, graphic design and production design across a wide range of media for companies of all sizes. Most recently, she was Production Designer at Hallmark, where she collaborated with art directors and team members to achieve the company’s creative vision and standards. Anne will work closely with Shelly Searles, the company’s lead graphic designer.
Welcoming Tara and Anne to the team is the latest in a series of developments that mark continued growth for Dobies Healthcare Group as it celebrates its 25th year. Earlier in 2017, the company added a strategic marketing manager and new writing talent to its ranks, and launched its own unique community give-back program called Apple a Day. In September, the company announced the appointment of Julie Amor as company president in addition to her role as chief strategy officer.
“It’s exciting to join a healthy, growing company like Dobies Healthcare Group,” said Tara, adding that the mission of improving the way people think about health is a great source of inspiration.
Anne agrees: “I knew from the start this was an opportunity I wanted to pursue,” she said. “Being able to apply my visual communication skills in ways that connect people to better health is very rewarding.”
