Who Is Anna Hallen?
Anna Hallen is a vital part of our team at Akamai Systems; she is our brilliant Marketing Manager! She is our creative, dynamic and strategic partner for all things marketing related. She is the creator of our content across all marketing channels; newsletter, social media, brochures. She makes sure you stay informed and up-to-date on anything Akamai Systems related.
Anna was born in Sweden, and came to the US in 1996 to do a Master’s in Communications Management at Simmons College in Boston. She thought she would finish her studies then go back to Sweden and start her marketing career, but that’s not what the universe had in store for her! She ended up working at small, high-tech startups as well as doing freelance work in Boston. In 2012, she moved to Denver with her family, and she is now running her own marketing consulting company, Osprey Marketing, LLC. There is a Swedish connection in this story – Camilla and Anna met on the board of SWEA Denver, the local chapter of the Swedish Women’s Educational Association.
We are so grateful and thrilled to have Anna part of the Akamai Systems team. She brings creativity, focus and strategic planning to everything marketing related.
Thank you, Anna, for being part of our team!
