Wildeck, Inc. (Waukesha, WI) promoted Kelly M. Kamlager as their new director of marketing, effective June 4, 2018. She replaces Hubert (Hue) Schlegel, who is retiring on July 13 after some 13 years with the company. “We wish Hue the best and thank him for his many contributions, first as marketing manager in August 2005, and then as director of marketing in March 2008,” said Paul Mihelich, the vice president of sales and marketing. “During his years here, Hue has taken our marketing function to great heights. His promotional activities, writing talent, market research, statistical reporting, PR and branding have been second to none! Both Hue and his unique talents will be missed throughout our organization.”
Kamlager will report directly to Mihelich. She began her career with the company in 2006 as a marketing assistant, was promoted to marketing specialist in 2009, again in 2014 as senior marketing specialist, and became their marketing manager in 2015. “Kelly has contributed tremendously to our marketing efforts over the years, bringing new ideas for advertising, website development, trade shows, social media, and brand development to both Wildeck and Wildeck West,” noted Mihelich. “We wish her continued success in her new leadership role.”
