Marne Smiley

Digital Director – Chicago

(312) 561-4539

Hobbies: I ice climb in the winter, and I race one-design sailboats in the summer on Lake Michigan. But my first love is running.. I race for New Balance and specialize in the marathon and half marathon, before I was a runner, I was a nationally-ranked cyclist and triathlete. I am basically really good at suffering and being uncomfortable. When I am not pushing my physical boundaries I support Rape Victims Associates and very much enjoy serving the vulnerable people of Chicago particularly the homeless through the social justice committee at my church.

What I love helping clients: Well I love helping people and companies become the best versions of themselves by taking the intimidation out of the digital space and showing that small changes can really make a big difference

What I love about working for Lightpost Digital: I worked at Groupon before it was the Groupon we know today, so I have always been drawn to working with small businesses in the tech world. Lightpost I think solves a lot of gaps that wasn’t the focus of Groupon, and the staff is sharp and eager to work together not just with clients, but also with our internal teams as well.
