Meet the Team
Eric Murr, General Sales Manager
I began my career in Outdoor Advertising in 1993, at Penn Advertising in Reading, PA. My career path took me into sales management for Adams Outdoor in the Northeast Pennsylvania market, then to General Management for PNE/Nextmedia in Baltimore and Washington. I believe this broad range of experience, from the smallest of accounts to the largest Markets and Agencies in the World, has prepared me for virtually any budget and any marketing strategy.
The ownership of Kegerreis Outdoor has been tremendously gracious in allowing me to shape our team to reflect old school values. Together, I feel we have built a really great company. Between our new digitals, marketing materials and website, and our team of professionals, we believe we truly shine among our rivals. There is so much more to advertising than buying an ad for a decent price. It takes market research, exceptional creative, and good customer service. And that’s what you will get with Kegerreis Outdoor.
Dusky Rankin, Senior Sales Manager
My career as a sales consultant, as well as excitement for business integrity and growth, started at a young age. I began by managing my parents business; from there, I went onto a five year period as an insurance commercial producer, and then in January of 2005, I joined Kegerreis Outdoor Advertising.
Today, I am your media partner. Together, we'll tailor a campaign that is geographically relevant to your industry demands through allocation of appropriate media material. Building brands and creating awareness, all while matching the dynamics of your unique story, can be achieved with billboards. Billboards say who you are. As your media partner, I put it out there to be seen!
I love and live life to the fullest with my husband, daughter and stepchildren; giving Glory and Honor Above. You'll see me in the airport (I love to travel!), on the tennis courts, jogging around town, or cheering our kids on at their games.
Shawn Monahan, Northeast Region Sales Manager
I have been a part of the Kegerreis Outdoor Advertising team since 2007. I have been in sales through other companies and this is the first company I have worked for where I truly believe in the product. I have sold outdoor media in many different states, cities, and towns and billboards are proven to have the broadest reach no matter how big or small the market. Of course selling is a wonderful part of my position, but the relationships I make with clients is what I value the most. I enjoy who I work for and also enjoy the people I work with.
I moved around a lot as a child which helped me grow as a person. I was able to meet many new people which is one of the most fascinating aspects of my job. Getting to know different people, what they do, and about their company really drives me to do the best I can for them. I hope to continue this line of work for a long time and look forward to any new opportunities that come my way.
Stephen Hartt, Regional Sales
I have been an account manager for Kegerreis since 2009. I have a degree in Graphic Design and a passion for visual arts and advertising. While my background is in art, I have spent the past six years working in sales. I do not consider myself a salesman. I strive to be your personal consultant to help you grow and market your business to its fullest potential.
I love to spend my free time traveling with my wife, enjoying the outdoors, playing sports and serving at my church. I look forward to meeting you soon!
Rebecca Bowling, Eastern Region Sales Manager
I began my career in outdoor advertising over 15 years ago in Louisiana and honed my skills when I sold for Lamar in the North Carolina market for five years. I bring to the table close to seven years total experience in the outdoor medium, and it is with great pleasure that I again get to work in this field with Kegerreis! I believe that billboards offer one of the most cost-effective means of advertising, and I look forward to working with businesses to present their unique message!
I enjoy being married to an Officer in the military and after moving cross-country many times, to finally being in a place we now consider "home". When not running from activity to activity with the children, we are also very involved in the world of Scouting. To quote the Girl Scouts, I promise to work with you to help your business to always "Be prepared"!
Lauren Roberts, Charlotte Sales Manager
I joined Kegerreis Outdoor after their recent expansion into the Carolinas. After graduating from Queens University of Charlotte in 2005 I started my career as a project manager for a brand development and marketing research firm in Charlotte, NC. It was there where I developed an understanding for the value of a strong brand and the need to create consumer awareness within a target market. I have worked in many different capacities, all with one common thread - embracing the opportunity to help people. I want to help you grow your business. I strive to create a reputation in the Charlotte market where I can identify the needs and goals of your company and be a significant contributor to your media plan through the incredible reach of outdoor advertising! I have lived in the Charlotte area for over 10 years and have a strong understanding of the local market.
Outside of work I soak up every second with my family and friends. We enjoy interacting in our community, taking advantage of events and cultural activities, and supporting local sports teams. GO PANTHERS!
Jason Hinkle – Regional Sales Manager
Upon graduating from North Hagerstown High School I went into the United States Marine Corps, which took me to The Citadel where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts. After working with different government agencies for a number of years, I began consulting with local business to improve business processes and making them more efficient. I look forward to consulting with your company on marketing strategies and come up with a great billboard campaign. I enjoy the creative side of ads and will always do my best to hit your goals!
When I’m not at work I do a great deal for a few nonprofit organizations in the area especially the Boy Scouts of America. I am also the head coach for the Hagerstown YMCA wrestling program. You may find me in various sports arenas in the area.
Elly Wise, Office Manager
My chosen careers have always allowed me to focus on managing people, offices, and atmospheres. From billing, to accounts receivable and payable, to ordering supplies, I have enjoyed being a part of Kegerreis Outdoor Advertising since 2000. This innovative company allows me to showcase my organizational skills, and has challenged my work to be more pointed and meticulous. With over 1300 displays, 6 sales managers, and 12 administrative and operations members, keeping the office running smoothly requires the kind of focus and energy that keeps me smiling.
Outside of the office, my granddaughters take my heart and time! I also find relaxation in reading and scrapbooking.
Gina Kendall, Director of Scheduling
A giant puzzle is how I would describe my job. I take care of scheduling Kegerreis Outdoor's entire inventory from billboards to bus shelters. With the ever changing rotary programs that we offer, I am constantly working to ensure all of our advertisers get posted on time and with the best program that makes the most sense for each client! I come from a military background which has instilled pride, discipline and the ability to keep pushing forward until the job is done! I enjoy the challenge of ensuring that with each billboard posting, I am helping to maximize our client's billboard advertising success!
Outside of work you are sure to find me with one of my loves: family, friends and horses! I am constantly on the go with my daughters to their games and our favorite place- the barn!
Christy Schale, Creative Director
I love to create! I love the process of bringing ideas to life; it's a passion I've discovered from years of different experiences culminating in my joining the Kegerreis team in 2009. My degree in Communications from Shippensburg University served as a broad platform for me as I worked in marketing for a Fortune 500 company and a local law office. I gained a wealth of appreciation for working directly with people & companies throughout the branding process. You can rest assured that I will give everything I've got to your billboard design, and I work with an awesome team of artists who bring their talents to the table 100%, every time. Let's design something!
Outside of work, I devote my energies to a broad range of interests, including the dramatic arts, volunteering, and serving my church and local community wherever I can. The creative process is a part of my everyday life!
Jennifer Niedererr, Marketing Director
I joined Kegerreis in 2009 and work closely with our creative team to attract clients who embrace our same spirit. Graduating from John L. Grove College of Business at Shippensburg University with a degree in Marketing is where I found my passion for advertising. I’ve worked in multiple media-branding industries including radio, retail, and now billboards! What excites me is researching consumer trends, market behaviors, and purchasing patterns all while being creative to deliver the correct message to its targeted audience. I welcome the opportunity to educate our clients and inspire them to elevate their message with the power of billboards!
Outside of Kegerreis, I enjoy working at my favorite clothing store and hanging out with family and friends. Traveling, learning new things, and helping others is what makes my life exciting!
Becky Starliper – Customer Service Manager
I couldn’t have found a better place than Kegerreis Outdoor to start my career in advertising and interpersonal relations. My English B.A., technical/professional communications minor and writing concentration reflect my desire to take on different experiences. Since joining the Kegerreis family, I feel rewarded by serving our community and beyond. I coordinate people and resources to form new relationships and strengthen old ones. Assessing customers’ needs and creative problem solving are part of my everyday goals. Our customers’ success is how we thrive: we must all help each other reach our dreams.
In my free time, I like to write poetry, find new music and spend time with family and friends. I’m continually trying new foods and going places I’ve never been. I love making people laugh – it makes life much more enjoyable!
Lori Porter, Administrative Assistant
I joined the Kegerreis team in 2013 with a passion for organization, research, and enabling others to perform at their finest. My degree in history from Messiah College provided me with an excellent starting point for taking my analytical skills to a career in advertising. In my role I get to be part of the system of support that keeps our company running smoothly and efficiently. From organizing new advertising locations, to resolving data discrepancies, to coordinating research projects, every day I am rewarded by seeing my hard work help my teammates to accomplish their goals. I celebrate each success, knowing it all trickles down to our clients receiving the very best service as a result.
Outside of Kegerreis, I spend time with my family and friends, and help out in my church as a children’s teacher and youth leader. You can also find me writing, reading a good book, enjoying the outdoors, and playing with my Wheaten Terrier, Mattie.
Dana Knepper – Administrative Sales Assistant
For almost 5 years, I have been working in the business industry. With a love for helping people and strong organizational skills I assist our sales team and the needs of their clients’ advertising campaigns. Whether it’s creating proposals, scheduling digital artwork, or confirming a client’s board is posted, I love watching the process from start to finish! Working together to achieve your goals is where I want to be!
As a mom of two very active little boys can find me cheering them on at their football, basketball, or baseball events. We also are up for adventures whether it be hiking, bike riding, hunting ,fishing or traveling!
