March 14th, 2019 by Lauren Christy

No matter the time of year, Search Influence is dedicated to expanding our clients’ online presence and growing their businesses. Even though New Orleans just got done with its most hectic time of year, Mardi Gras, we’ve been focused on producing results for our clients. We also understand that we need a comprehensive team of digital marketing experts to create our best work. In the past few months, we’ve expanded our team to include five new Influencers! Meet the new additions to our “Krewe.”

Lauren Griffin

Lauren Griffin has been hired as an Account Manager.

From a small town called Abbeville, Lauren grew up visiting New Orleans regularly. She was always drawn to the city due to its culture, history, and laissez-faire attitude. During her time at Louisiana State University, she discovered her passion for marketing. Lauren feels truly lucky to be doing what she loves in a city she loves.

Demi LeBlanc

Demi LeBlanc has been hired as a Sales Assistant.

You can usually find Demi watching some movie with Barbra Streisand and attempting to be a world-renowned (yet terrible) watercolor artist. She loves finding creative solutions to everyday problems and using her creativity to design and customize whatever is in front of her. She’s always looking for ways to make things better.

Michael Shargois

Michael Shargois has been hired as a Sales Executive.

Michael was born and raised in New Orleans, and he’s never leaving! He is a graduate of Lusher Charter School and Louisiana State University. Outside of business hours, you can find him supporting his favorite sports teams—the Saints, Tigers & Pelicans. Michael also enjoys listening to music and spending time with his girlfriend. Michael is an animal lover but doesn’t have any pets. If anyone needs a dog walker, let him know!

Brandt “RC” Arceneaux

Brandt “RC” Arceneaux has been hired as a Digital Advertising Coordinator.

Brandt grew up in St. Charles Parish, just upriver from New Orleans. After high school, he enlisted in the military and spent the next six years traveling and working around the world, including Germany, Turkey, Iraq, and Florida. He learned German and developed his childhood French while working overseas. He returned to the city after Hurricane Katrina and worked as a police officer while earning his English degree. After working in the U.S. intelligence community for six years, Brandt returned home again to complete his master’s degree and started a consulting and translating business. Brandt lives with his wife and their cat, Professor Shorthair. He spends his time cooking, practicing music, and jogging at Audubon Park.

Marissa Wehrer

Marissa Wehrer has been hired as a Digital Advertising Coordinator.

Marissa graduated from LSU with degrees in Marketing and Entrepreneurship. She fell in love with digital marketing after selling jewelry online during college. After college, Marissa lived in Spain, earning her International Master of Business Administration and working for a startup. After returning home, she combined her passion for fashion with digital marketing and started a blog. With her blog, she has the opportunity to express her creative side and incorporate her digital marketing skills. Now she gets to live out her passion all day, every day!
