Kerry SchmidtMedia Director
Kerry started her Media career in 1999 shortly after graduating from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana with a degree in Advertising. She developed her exceptional instincts and negotiating skills while working for an agency in the competitive Chicago market for several years. A few years ago she moved to Portland after accepting a position as senior media buyer at a major ad agency. In 2016 she joined Charlton Marketing as media director.

Her greatest satisfaction comes from helping clients formulate sound media objectives and progressive strategies, while implementing best-in-class media practices. Kerry’s experience in broadcast and other traditional media combined with digital strategies provides maximum budget efficiency. Her solution-based approach and command of current market trends create a competitive edge for clients.

In her spare time, Kerry likes to head outdoors to explore the beautiful wonders of the Pacific Northwest with her husband and Shiba Inu dog. A stop for a glass of wine or craft beer might also be included in their day trips.
