Senior Account Director
As a Senior Account Director at REQ, Danielle Yanke leads digital strategies for some of the agency’s top hospitality and eCommerce clientele, exceeding clients’ goals with strategic marketing plans. A dyed in the wool optimist, Danielle enjoys bringing a positive attitude and energy to her client operations so we can all have a little fun along the way.
Originally hailing from Chicago after graduating from Northern Illinois University with a BS in Hospitality Administration, Danielle made her way to the Las Vegas marketing industry after kicking off her career at MGM Grand and then skipped across The Strip to The Mirage, where she supported Vegas’ first mega-resort’s online presence. During this time, she oversaw social media strategy, digital media plans, mobile apps, web design, and all aspects of digital marketing for a Fortune 500 company. Simultaneously serving on the board of the Las Vegas Innovation Marketing Association for 9 years, she upholds the continual education (and reputation for amazing networking events) for the city’s marketing community.
Discovering her perfect fit within agency life, she is now a Senior Account Director out of REQ’s Las Vegas office. Outside of the office, Danielle spends time loving her daughter Freya, and her and her husband Brandon try to find time being amateur astronomers, exploring epicurean delights, watching sci-fi, and playing with their dog, Oliver.
