CEO / Co-Founder
Driven to success. Sounds cheesy right? But it does accurately portray Corey Levin who has become one of the country’s leading advertising minds. His meteoric rise in the advertising industry is in large part to having worked on both sides of the advertising world, with both major media organizations and advertising agencies.
At 45 years of age, Corey has spent over 25 years in sales and marketing cultivating a unique combination of high-level customer service and problem solving abilities. Initially, Corey cut his teeth in the automotive ad agency world and made the wise decision to learn about selling both print and digital advertising for the Sun-Sentinel and Clear Channel Communications. He was honored with multiple awards for sales excellence and achievement.
When advertising’s switch to the digital world created panic industry-wide, Corey was way ahead of the game and was easily able to guide his clients through their digital journey of success. This burgeoning reputation made the decision easy to bring him back to the agency side.
