Class: 2012, Advertising
Now: Director of Client Engagement at Look Listen Advertising
Trial and error is a familiar formula to Lucas Droessler. It took this Greenlee graduate switching through six different majors before he finally discovered what he wanted to do.
Actually, it wasn’t until after a lecture taught by now retired Greenlee lecturer John Thomas that Droessler finally found his calling. In 2012, he walked away from Iowa State with a degree in advertising and a minor in psychology and into a position as associate director of communications at SKAR Advertising in Omaha, Neb.
His work at SKAR would eventually lead Droessler to a three-year stint at DMXENGAGE, a Colorado marketing company. And then he landed his dream job at Look Listen Advertising in Denver, where he works as director of client engagement.
“Each day is something different,” Droessler said. “I’m always having to adapt.”
When he’s not strategizing with major companies such as Synchrony Financial and Arrow Electronics, Droessler gets his thrills by kayaking and hiking in the Colorado wilderness.
