Currently serving as Huntersville’s mayor, Jill Swain is in her 12th year of local public office. Prior to entering the public realm, Ms. Swain worked for two decades in direct response advertising. Her client list has included Save the Children, Baltimore Orioles, Harrah’s Casinos and Resorts, Wachovia, NAACP and more. She has worked in various agencies along the East Coast and with a division of the May Company.
“The role of mayor is very similar to the role of advertiser, ” Swain says. “In just about every industry, being the ambassador for the product means offering quality customer service, developing partnerships and staying ahead of the trends. Today, I’m merely continuing my profession to hopefully benefit my town.”
