Lesley Ortner – Account Manager


Lesley started working at KWWL in 2002 and really enjoys working at KWWL, “I have had the opportunity to work with a wide spectrum of businesses in several different industries which keeps my job exciting.

I work with companies as large as Toyota, Iowa Lottery, Mediacom, MidAmerican Energy, Casey’s General Stores and Homemakers Furniture to many local businesses here in Eastern Iowa like Amy Wienands Real Estate, Town & Country, The Sayer Law Firm, Kimball & Beecher Family Dentistry, Boubin Tire & Automotive, John and Dan Deery Motors.

I enjoy sitting across the desk from my clients, learning their goals, objectives and challenges of business, taking that information and developing a marketing plan to help them to achieve those goals, grow their business and move the needle. I take great pride in helping my clients succeed!  The power of KWWL-TV,, The CW and ME-TV is unlike any other in our market….nothing compares!”

“Lesley epitomizes the three P’s…personable, prompt and professional. She sets the bar for what a good rep should be.”Susan Hobart – Senior Media Buyer at Flynn Wright-Des Moines, Iowa

A great sales rep to have.  KWWL is lucky to have her.  She will be there when you need her and not there when you don’t, (meaning she won’t be wasting any of your time.)  Other reps need to take a page out of her playbook.  Besides that, she is just an all-around nice person.”–John Butler – Rydell of Independence-Independence, Iowa

I have enjoyed working with Lesley for years, and for several of our clients, both large and small. I can always depend on her to do the very best for us. She is pro-active, efficient, a great communicator, and keeps me updated on new opportunities for our clientsLisa Boden – Senior Media Planner/Buyer-Des Moines, Iowa
