Megan Arnold

Class of 2005


A 2005 graduate of IU Southeast, Megan Arnold has invested as much into her career in advertising as she did in her education. Arnold graduated with honors including distinction and outstanding advertising student.

Her internship at Creative Alliance, one of the largest advertising agencies in Louisville, left a lasting impression. She was hired full-time at the agency as an account executive in 2006 where she continues her career.

While ever-changing, her daily role includes serving as the liaison between 13 plus Community Health Systems (CHS) hospitals through Alabama, Florida, North Carolina and Virginia. In addition to overseeing in excess of $1,900,000 in advertising budgets, she volunteered for additional responsibilities in the database management. She runs and communicates the monthly expenditure and physician reports for all 133 CHS hospitals.

Along with her knowledge in traditional advertising, she has been at the forefront of the agency’s introduction of a client-based Web site that streamlines project requests including a library of creative samples and online project submission forms.

In addition, to her fulltime role on the CHS account, she was selected to serve as the AE on the Louisville Metro Police Foundation. Adding to her portfolio of accomplishments, is the award-winning awareness campaign, “Could you do it?” She is currently spearheading another awareness campaign for the Foundation including a fund-raising component.
