Meet Our Teams: Accounts Department

At the forefront of Trilix is our Accounts Department. Employees on the accounts team are our relationship builders, working directly with Trilix clients to ensure projects exceed expectations while staying within budget. Meet them here.

Abe Goldstien, Senior Account Manager
Having been in the business for more than 40 years, Abe has seen and done it all, and has earned the title of senior account manager along the way. Abe brings his wealth of knowledge and expertise to clients such as the Iowa State Fair, Availa Bank, CICS, Polk County Housing Trust Fund and many others.

Anyone who knows Abe knows his addiction/passion — jazz. They better, as he considers himself a jazz advocate. He also plays the accordion in Des Moines’ only klezmer band, the Java Jews.

Alex Rich, Account Manager/Team Lead
Fun fact: Alex started his career with Trilix as a summer intern. From there he was hired full-time and has been a public relations specialist, a project manager and a senior project manager prior to assuming his current role. Alex helps clients like McWane, the Iowa Wild and more create marketing campaigns that drive results.

Out of the office, Alex is busy with his four-month-old daughter, playing recreational soccer and marketing FootGolf for Warrior Run Golf Course, where he’s the FootGolf director.

Dallas Martz, Account Director for Casey’s General Stores
Dallas has a very unique position with Trilix. He sells the advertising for Casey’s General Stores throughout all 1,961 stores in a 15-state footprint here in the Midwest. For almost five years now, Dallas has built a list of hundreds of advertisers in all 15 of these states, from small, locally owned businesses to large, national ones.

Way back in the day, Dallas was a Top 40 and country radio DJ. He always joked if he worked in country radio, he’d change his name to “George Crooked” (Get it? George Straight? He knows…it’s bad). Thankfully he didn’t, and “Dallas Kincade” was born!

Ashley Danielson, Account Manager
Ashley will celebrate her eighth year at Trilix this June. She works with clients like DART, Per Mar Security Services, Templeton Rye, Valley West Mall and more. She’s on the board for the Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute and was recognized in the Des Moines Business Record’s “Forty Under 40” 2015 class.

Outside of work, Ashley is starting a new chapter in her life with the sale of her Urbandale townhome. If anyone’s in the market, let her know!

Jason Wells, Account Manager
Account Manager Jason Wells specializes in interactive account management and works with Trilix clients who need new website designs, extranets, app development and more. Jason has worked at Trilix for more than five years.

You’ll often have to look up to see Jason outside of work — he loves rock climbing! He’s also a craft beer snob and is always after new, exciting brews to try.

Janelle Steinkamp, Senior Project Manager
Janelle has seen a thing or two in her time at Trilix — almost 13 years this July! As senior project manager, Janelle works with clients like Casey’s General Stores, Stine Seed Company and the Iowa State Fair (to name a few).

When she’s not working, Janelle is Supermom. She has three children: Ellie (7), Beau (4) and Evan (2).

Meghan Mortier, Project Manager
Meghan is one of several project managers and has been part of the team for two years now, managing projects for clients such as Availa Bank, Templeton Rye, Helena Chemical, the Greater Des Moines Partnership and more.

Outside of work, Meghan likes to run and go out to eat (she’ll admit, the latter is why she probably should keep enjoying the former). She also recently got engaged, so she’s busy project managing her wedding.

Nathaniel Carney, Project Manager
Nathaniel joined Trilix full-time after interning with the public relations department in the summer of 2015. He’s now one of our project managers, assisting with clients such as Heartland Tire and Auto, Valley West Mall and more.

When he’s not at work, Nathaniel cheers on his favorite sports team or plays golf. He loves seafood and is an experimental cook. And perhaps most importantly, he’s an avid Game of Thrones fan.

Kristin Peterson, Project Manager
Project Manager Kristin joined the Trilix team in the summer of 2015. Kristin works with several clients in different capacities, including McWane, the Iowa Wild, CFI Tires, Per Mar Security Services and more.

Outside the office, Kristin loves baking. She also loves to travel, owns an unhealthy amount of nail polish (never leaving her nails unpainted) and, despite her severe allergies, believes a house cat is probably her spirit animal.

Austin Narber, Interactive Project Manager
Austin joined Trilix in June 2014, cutting his teeth with one of the agency’s largest clients — McWane, and developed a broader client base from there. After about a year, he found his niche with interactive projects, and began working with Jason Wells to grow that department from the accounts side.

Alright, enough about work. Austin is an avid sports and craft beer fan. And this Labor Day weekend, he will marry the love of his life, Kassidy.
