Lara Kongi is Market Sales Director over Atlanta, Tampa, Miami, and Jacksonville, and is responsible for the growth and development of the Southeast market. She was born in upstate New York on a dairy farm but has lived all along the east coast. Yes, that means she knows how to milk a cow, bail hay and how to drive a stick. While growing up as the middle child of five children, the household was very active in sports. Due to the fact that sports were such a major portion of her life, she naturally developed the passion to compete, work with a team and the will to succeed.
Upon finishing her collegiate career as a two-sport Division I athlete, it became very clear how a professional career in sales and advertising would make an excellent fit. Since then, she has always worked her way from an entry-level position into a leadership and sales management role. Along with that path, she has had the opportunity to work hands-on with hundreds of business owners and helping them to navigate the digital marketing world, showing them how they can succeed and reach their greatest potential.
When she is not working with a consultant or speaking to a client, she spends time working out, traveling to new destinations, eating any cuisine but American as well as watching sporting events or the newest action movie at theaters with her other half.
Lara attended University of Maryland, Baltimore County but transferred and graduated from the University of North Georgia. She now resides in Tampa with her husband, splitting her time across Florida and Georgia.
