Meet Ashley Krautkramer

Ashley Krautkramer was the executive vice president of Collegiate DECA, and advertising manager for The Spectator, the university’s newspaper, where she managed a staff of six students, met weekly sales goals, and worked with clients on ads.

In January 2011, Krautkramer participated in a study abroad experience in China which “broadened (her) understanding of the world and fired a desire to continue traveling and studying other cultures.” That experience helped her secure a marketing internship with the International Division of Hormel Foods where she worked with domestic and international creative agencies to develop promotional materials for sales teams in Canada and Hong Kong.

Krautkramer will graduate summa cum laude. She has accepted a sales position with Hormel Foods and will be relocating to the Atlanta, GA area.
