Hanna is an experienced professional in digital & mobile sales, management and marketing.
Hanna spent the first nineteen years of her life on the
Arctic Circle in Lapland, Finland. After her first year of university and
entirely too many winters of -50F˚ weather, she decided to fulfill her
lifelong dream of living in the United States. She arrived in Chapel Hill, NC in
1997 and fell in love with the South (both for the weather and the people).
After graduating from UNC Chapel Hill, Hanna began her career in marketing. She managed an advertising sales staff at a collegiate publisher from 2005-2009. Her interest in emerging media took her to Hearst
Communications where she became Google AdWords certified and was trained by Yahoo! in
In early 2010 Hanna landed a job at WRAL.com, the number one
ranked local news website in the nation. At WRAL she advised her clients on digital
display advertising, website design, SEO, pay-per click advertising, social and
traditional media. She was awarded New Business Salesperson of the Month twice
in 2011. In June of the same year she was promoted to Sales Manager over a
new business unit: WRAL Mobile.
Most recently, Hanna was promoted again to Local Sales Manager of WRAL.com to lead the online and mobile sales efforts.
Hanna is currently enrolled in an online master's program at East Carolina University studying Technical and Professional
Communications, and Marketing. In her free time she enjoys running and weight lifting.
