New York, NY – March 5, 2015 – Global brand experience agency Jack Morton Worldwide has promoted Melinda Lindland to SVP, Director of New Business for the US market.
“I am proud to be taking on this new opportunity,” said Lindland. “My goal is to knit together a thriving new business community across the Jack Morton North American offices that will benefit both our internal teams and our potential and existing clients. I have set high goals and expectations and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can achieve together.”
Lindland has worked in the experiential marketing, training and communications industry for over 18 years. She joined Jack Morton in 2012 as SVP, New Business and Group Account Director in the New York Office where she was responsible for overseeing the largest pillar accounts in the New York office, and for generating the new business revenue to satisfy an ambitious financial target.

Prior to joining Jack Morton, Lindland established relationships with Cognizant, Coty (The House of Gwen Stefani), IBM, Vertex, Boehringer Ingelheim, Tourism of Montreal, Covidien, and Elster for TBA Global.

Her contributions for the agency led to projects and long-term relationships with Redken, L’Oreal, Coty, the Skin Cancer Foundation, Clinique, The Estee Lauder Companies, and Ricoh Corporation. Before making her leap to Caffeine Media, Lindland worked as a business developer for Cubic B’s Productions and Caribiner International, where she led major communications projects with IBM, Pearson Education, Bayer, Fortis Benefits, Wells Fargo and Ricoh Corporation.
